1. You know what would make the backpacks more bulletproof?

NO GUNS!

4. These have been around for years

A lot of bullet proof and "bullet resistant" apparel items were pioneered in Colombia.

5. Look at that innocent little girl.

Should she have to be armored-plated to live her life in safety and happiness?

Good grief... ..what has this nation become?

6. ummm, perhaps someone could explain to me how this is going to help when the child is actually

in the classroom? don't they have to put their backpacks down? and how is that going to protect them from someone in front or to the side of them?

and why in the HELL don't we concentrate on making a world where this isn't the sort of thing anyone would EVER think necessary for a child? or an adult?
