It seems that parents in Colorado are buying their children bullet proof uniforms for their kids in response to the maniac attack in Aurora.
"The pink bulletproof rucksack that 5-year-old Jaliyah wears to school every day reaches almost down to her knees and weighs 3lbs even when empty,
but for her Colorado father, the size and solidity are part of the attraction.
"If you put it on her back, it almost covers her whole body," explains Demitric Boykin. "It was a very hard conversation to have but she knows that
it's something that will keep her safe."
Lined with ballistic material that can stop a 9mm bullet travelling at 400 metres per second, the backpack is only one of a clutch of new products
making their way into US schools in the wake of Newtown school massacre. As gun control legislation grinds to halt in Washington, a growing number of
parents and teachers are taking matters into their own hands."
I guess you cannot blame them in view of the Senate's refusal to pass any new gun control legislation.
Some firms are offering training courses for schools in protection from attacks. Nice little earner!
The right to bear arms is so important for Americans to be American. Sod the kids.
