Your bear suit might stop a knife, but what about a suicide bomber? Where do you stop armoring yourself? When do you stop fearing? Because that's the state our country is in right now.
Rather than educate themselves about the best way to protect themselves (take a self-defense class and STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM BEARS) against threats of personal or on-line security, people just want to turtle in and restrict others' freedoms as well.
