If you knew you were going to get shot at, you'd wear a Kevlar vest. Yes, you can still be hurt or killed by bullets while wearing Kevlar, but pretty much everyone would wear it if they knew they were going to get shot at. Hell, people would rush to wear experimental Iron Man armor in that situation, and would *definitely* make fun of people who chose to improvise hockey gear into armor instead of just wearing Kevlar.
I don't need to explain the analogy, right?
Faith Collapsing is a host set up by me (Steven Saus) with the same sensibility of the BBS I ran back in the 1990s - I set it up for me, but folks I personally know are welcome to join if they like. Left-leaning; fascists will not be happy with my moderation. Incitements to violence or hate speech will get you gone.
