Guy Fawkes Day

As we come to this 5th of November many are remembering Guy Fawkes. This year I seem to be noticing more conflicting opinions on the event. Guy Fawkes was a member of a catholic group plotting to kill then King James I. The plot was foiled and Guy Fawkes was the single member caught red handed. Some people condemn the uprising as religious terrorism, while others condone the right of the people to rise up against oppressive governing bodies. How do you remember the 5th?

Armored clothing.

So there was a bit of talk in the office today about body armor. This dwindled down to accessible civilian armor and then settled at Kevlar hoodies. There are a multitude of offerings for cyclists (both motored and natural) as a damage buffer against accidents. But how practical are they for self defense? After doing a little bit of searching I've come to find that while most vest will protect against knife cuts, they can't protect from serious punctures. I also thought I heard about some that are of a high enough armor class to block 9mm but this has been hard to confirm. Does anyone have experience with these?

Where and what can you carry?

Knife law. It is one tricky subject to try and keep oneself updated on. I have found multiple sites and spoken with several individuals (military, police, knifemakers/manufacturers.) and they all have different views as to what is legal. I won't claim to know, since I'm no lawyer and don't know the legislature. But I can tell you that I've found most knives are legal to carry when accompanied by a carry permit. For the low cost and peace of mind, I recommend getting one vs. taking your chances. Below are a couple of sites I found, tell me what you think!
