Report: Sales of Bullet Proof Backpacks Up

Sales jumped following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Following the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, sales of bullet proof backpacks are soaring, according to a story in The Washington Post.

Bullet Blocker, a company that sells bullet proof tactical gear, saw sales jump from 15 to 20 backpacks a week to 50 to 100 per day, according to the report.

Patch contacted several manufacturers, but none returned comment before publication.

The Washington Post wrote:

In Arizona, a body-armor manufacturer called Amendment II says sales of its bulletproof childrens’ backpacks -- Avengers for boys, Disney Princesses for girls -- have jumped more than 500 percent. Black Dragon Tactical, a survivalist company in New Hampshire, is promoting armored backpack-inserts on its Facebook page.

Why on earth would anyone consider this a practical purchase? I mean, really!

Hey, my sons have bulletproof backpacks because, God forbid, if some nutcase comes into their school shooting, at least they have some protection. My kids know that if someone is shooting a gun around them, to run and hide, and this backpack can protect them as they are running away. It might not stop the shooter from their rampage, but it does offer a little bit of protect to my kids.
