    The vast majority of police vests are only designed to stop most common handgun rounds; almost any hunting rifle from the .30/30 up will sail right through.

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

      Whenever this point comes up, someone shrieks "Why do you need a cop killer bullet for hunting?!".

      All that is needed for a bullet to go through an obstacle is for it to be heavy and fast enough. No special engineering is needed.

      The cartridges people were hunting deer with a hundred years ago require unusually awkward body armor to stop them.
