I think the bag I carry at college would safely catch a .50 at point blank range and ask for more, please.
In a paperless future we were
promised, all the paper is back breaking some days.
Now in the realm of realism? I think things like this are ignorant and dangerous. Teach kids to run, hide or fight but don't give them even the hint
of hope in some ignorant and totally fantasy based concept of stopping bullets with ANYTHING. Book bag or body armor. I don't care. A CHILD doesn't
need to even be thinking that way and trying to DO any of that means they're already dead if the shooter chooses that for them. He's already FAR too
close and they are caught like a deer in headlights. What the hell good is a book bag going to do? Cause the shooter to die laughing?
The only good I could possibly see is the Kevlar backpacks with something like pure random shooting in mind. Like a drive-by. However, we need to then
ask ourselves...are the odds of a stray bullet worth the paranoia these measures instill as a basic personality trait in the children for life? I say
