Stock up on these critical items before they get banned
By Zoey Sky // Jul 10, 2019

It's fairly easy to stock up on common items like food and personal hygiene products for your survival stockpile. But have you considered other items that might be harder to acquire or those that may eventually get banned, like body armor or night vision goggles? (h/t to


Civilians have the right to keep and bear arms as per the Second Amendment, but these rights are constantly being challenged by those who wish to rob others of the right to protect their hearth and home.

Three crucial items that you need to stock up on

Keep in mind that there are a handful of critical items not protected by the Second Amendment and that they may get banned any day. While they're still available for purchase, buy them in stores, online, or keep an eye out for them at garage sales.

The items detailed below are not protected by the Bill of Rights. If you believe they can help you when SHTF, buy them before it's too late.

Body armor

Those who use firearms know that it's important to own body armor because it can save their life. In a survival scenario, body armor can tip the scales in your favor if you ever get involved in a gunfight.

To date, certain online and physical stores are still offering body armor of various brands and types.

If body armor isn't available in your area, try searching for body armor Kevlar panels. These panels are similar to the ones used in vests, but they're designed to be used for backpacks. Body armor Kevlar panes are often marketed for active shooter emergencies.

Kevlar soft panels, which cost around $100, will fit on a plate carrier vest. Items like NIJ Rated IIIA Kevlar panels can stop 9mm FMJ, 357 magnum, and even up to 44 magnum ammo. (Related: Emergency preparedness: 7 Common mistakes preppers often make.)


Sound suppressors offer benefits for preppers who frequently use their firearms, whether for hunting or for practicing their marksmanship skills.

Here are the three benefits of sound suppressors.

  • They offer hearing protection. Being unprotected or exposed to a single unsuppressed gunshot may cause permanent hearing damage. When you're at a shooting range, you will need good firing range hearing protection as you discharge your weapon. Using a sound suppressor will help prevent firearm-related permanent hearing loss.
  • They can help improve your accuracy. It is believed that using sound suppressors helps improve accuracy by minimizing flinching due to the anticipation of the recoil and the subsequent loud noise emitted by a firearm. Use a high-quality suppressor to minimize the noise and about 40 percent of the recoil for some calibers.
  • They can address noise complaints. If you prefer to practice your marksmanship in your backyard, you may receive noise complaints from your neighbors. To address this, use a suppressor.

Night vision goggles

To get the edge over your opponents in a gunfight, use night vision goggles.

Take note that night vision goggles can be expensive. For example, the BelOMO NVG-16 Gen 2+ costs more than $2,000 while the N-Vision Optics PVS-14 Generation 3 costs more than $3,000.

Despite the fact that night vision goggles are one of the most controlled warfare tech items, you can still buy them online. If you have the budget for a pair of night vision goggles, they're a great force multiplier for combat.

It's worth investing in survival gear like body armor, sound suppressors, and night vision goggles to significantly improve your chances of surviving a gunfight with looters or trespassers on your property when SHTF.
