Getting kids ready for school? Don’t forget the bulletproof backpack. Parents are taking measures into their own hands with a powerful new invention to protect their children. The owner of Nichols – a gun store in Rock Hill, SC, has said he’s seen a spike in both bullet-proof backpack ijserts, and bullet-proof backpacks over the past few days. This surge is in the wake of recent mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.
It seems to be the new trend that many retailers support. The bulletproof backpacks have been flying off shelves with families willing to spend up to $300 for the protection. Office Depot is among the retailers selling bulletproof backpacks. And Amazon has jumped on the bandwagon, too. It carries one of the more popular models.
