Bulletproof Binders?!! Will you buy your kids one of these?

I wouldn't be against it actually.

Our school district is looking into equipping classes with kevlar blankets, shields, whiteboards and offering backpacks for parents to buy.

Sad, but an interesting idea.

The backpacks retail at around 300$  

Would you buy your kids one?  What do you think of schools buying these safety supplies?

In the neighborhood we live in it might come in handy.

I don't live in a constant state of paranoia, so no I will not be buying one

Sandy Cook was not a random shooting though. The guy who shot the school up had Aspurgers and his mother worked there! His mother should not have had machine guns were her autistic kid could get them regardless of his age!

I'd like to see real statistics on that.

They are rare but becoming less so.

And you do realize how rare that is, right?



When my brother first started teaching he taught in the inner city (ghetto). He saw 5 student get shit his first 2 years.

Nope. My kids attend a safe quiet suburban school. No need.





If we lived in the ghetto I definitely would but then again if we lived in the ghetto I most likely couldn't afford any of that stuff.







Sandy hook took place in a quiet, peaceful upper middle class town. It was far from ghetto.

Georgia? 

Quoting kitty8199:

I kinda feel the same. Although they're getting more common. Had one two weeks ago here . Shots fired no one hit.

Quoting alexsmomaubrys2:

No. School shootings are RARE and I refuse to put that kind of stress and fear in my children.

You know...I probably would.

We own guns for protection with the hope that we won't ever have to use them, so until schools are as secure as the local courthouse, I would probably buy one for my DD.

It was stated that Sandy Hook was located in a decent neighborhood while i dont think location has anything to do with it there are crazies everywhere i was just simply stating the facts.. Really no reason to be rude!

It's sad that we even have to consider measures like this, but after Sandy Hook, I wouldn't be opposed, to be entirely honest.
