Does anyone know what the law is in illinois about body armor. Is there a law saying that I cant buy any.

Section 720 (criminal code) has something about body armor, but iirc it is only an offense if you're using the body armor in the commission of a crime.

I'm not aware of any other laws regarding body armor, but I have never looked into it.

I checked with a Chicago lawyer about this, his reply was do not violate any other laws while wearing armor. They have laws in place about robbery and the use of armor, or being unlawfully armed while wearing armor.

Knob Creek Range in April or October. Best answer I have for cash purchases if you don't have gun shows in your state.

Google 'armor plates' or 'ballistic plates'.
