    I'm just tired of us not remembering and ignoring how we feel when we hurt others!! I'm tired of us using weaponry to enforce when deceit isn't working!! Tired of us putting money towards the trade in these materials to create more weaponry for our depletion in progression!! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    This was a very thinly veiled attempt at recruiting. Unfortunately, it seems most people are entirely gullible.

    I'd love to see Demolition Ranch or one of those other gun channels to do tests on these suits with different explosives. I remember there being bomb threats in my elementary school like every few months. It seemed very common, and was never a drill. This was in Central Florida. I was always curious about these threats and the origin. It seems like that was sort of the "swatting" of the early 200's late 90's

    What will they do when there hands get blown off cause they dont wear protection. They literally protect everything else heavy wise but leave their hands exposed. Just watch the bomb guy casually walk by without hands and say job well done.

    Well leaving hands unprotected with all that armor is weird, person will at least lose his fingers, i mean even a firecracker is capable of partially blowing the finger off.
