Bullet Proof Backpacks Soaring After School Shootings!

"Parents may have a new option when it comes to protecting their children while at school in the wake of the Connecticut school shootings. A Salt Lake City, Utah, company called Amendment II is offering a “Ballistic Backpack” lined with carbon nanotube armor sewn into the rear of the pack and comes in boys, girls, and teen/young adult models. Jill Stringham with Amendment II told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that the product is the result of the company's overall mission."

  • I mean when it gets to the stage that your children need to go to school wearing bulletproof apparel, isn't it time you fuckers woke up, smelled the coffee and reassessed the relationship you have with guns?

    I know it's a wacked out liberal idea and all, but it is rather nice living your life without fear how the rest of the western world does.

    • @dirtyarris Yea because when I think of being safe, I think Criminals will obey the laws, or someone who really really wants a gun will be stopped by making them illegal.

      Just like they did with alcohol in the 20's and the drug culture of today.

      Making something illegal doens't "stop" it , or make it non existant. It merely stops law biding normal citizens from getting it.

      Some of the biggest public massacres have been in countires with strict gun control.

    • @Lllarrry You are sure invested in the idea of a civilian population having access to items designed with the sole intent to easily and effectively end life, and lots of it.

      Very strange, and yer, its that much of a media construct the media commissioned the manufacturing of these bulletproof childrens bags and commissioned the several school massacres you have experienced, just to whip up a frenzy and create a story where none existed before.

    • @Gyloir the simple irreducible end point that can not be ignored, is that without the culture, proliferation and easy access of weapons, it is a certified guarantee that 26 people would not now be dead.

      I know the nra like to suggest more guns means a safer society, but you guys are living proof (until you get shot that is) that that is a complete fallacy designed purely to feed the fears of the paranoid masses.

    • @dirtyarris How would they not be dead? What about the Anders guy who shot all of those kids in Norway where they have much stricter gun laws then the US?

      How can you say that if they made guns illegal that there would be no shootings? People can, and will, simply go around the law, buy weapons from the black market (like they do in Britain).

  • I hope people understand that these "bullet proof" backpacks aren't entirely bullet proofed. It may stop a bullet but the internal organs may be injured fatally.

    • @nixfix People are just so busy that even if they are brave enough to see the BS, they don't have much time or energy to research into it. The lies are sooo deep and pervasive, you would not believe. It is true insanity like Shutter Island level. There are water, food, education, social capital(happiness/emotions/connections), debt monetization, and industrial military complex issues that need much more attention and would actually indirectly solve a great many issues across the board including More..

  • I highly doubt these things stop bullets. They don't even have a trauma plate (rigid plate) to protect you from the impact of the bullet. Bullets can still break bones and even kill if the vest stops them. The force of impact is that strong.

    I think these are a joke.

  • what a sad state of affairs. Selling make-shift body armor to school children (well, their parents I suppose).

    A first step might be an outright ban on assault rifles - there's absolutely no reason a civilian needs one.

    Please don't give me the standard - "criminals don't obey laws" BS. Criminals in Canada and every other country with gun control laws have guns. Criminals have guns - that's almost an impossibility to stop. However we don't see malls, schools and theatre massacres in More..

    • @RedRocket44 Well that is another reason to keep guns. When the Philistines get out of line, then you can go Samson on them. Guns turn the common into Samson and therefore should not be outlawed.

      no idea dude. Is one full auto and one semi?

      Regardless, nobody needs a full or semi-automatic rifle that holds 20-30 rounds.

      Again, it's not about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Most criminals don't kill 20-30 people and then take their own life. Psychopath-nutjobs do that. It's about keeping guns out of their hands.

      Upon a quick google search, only firearms manufactured after the "10 year ban" bill was passed in Sept 2004 applied. Older assault rifles wouldn't have been affected.

      Sounds like a silly restriction to me, considering one of the most well known and reliable assualt rifles (AK 47) was made from 1949-1959.

      FOREIGN INVADERS?!

      Do you actually think N. Korea, Iran, Iraq or Afghanistan or any other country could even get a single regiment of troops to US/Canadian shores? Those countries pose absolutely no threat to us what-so-ever.

      Repelling foreign invaders is your army's job -- not a mothers job. If this kids mother didn't own assault rifles, this school massacre doesn't happen. How blind are you?

  • What that company fails to tell these parents buying their backpacks is this little-bitty, teensy-weensy bit of essential information:

    Their backpacks will stop up to a .357 magnum round (read that from their press releases), which makes it only a NIJ Threat Level II-rated vest. A Level II vest will not stop .223 Rem/5.56 NATO, which is the gun that was used at Newtown, CT.

    If you want to stop .223 Rem/5.56 NATO up through and including .308 Win/7.62 NATO, you will have to get Level III (not More..
