Description:As families in Newtown, Connecticut mourn the deaths of 26 people shot dead by a 20-year-old gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday, many parents across the United States are asking how they can keep their children safe from gun violence. Utah company Amendment II had already come up with an usual solution: a bullet-proof backpack.

I am not going to rush out and buy one.

Cant say that if we werent back to school shopping and my DD picked it up and like it I would say no.

I saw on TV that these would not protect against the type of bullets and weapons used in the CT shooting.

Retail price of the bulletproof backpack is $300

What is average retail price for handgun?

My thoughts as well. It's not like a jacket or some other clothing

They shot the backpack at point blank range 3 times with a 9mm and it "worked"

It was also stated teachers are requesting blankets they can use as a sitting mat that could be pulled up as a shield.

Scary we even talking about possible purchase of bulletproof stuff for our kids, it's like we live in war zone right?

Sad
