Armored backpacks, REALLY.. If you really want to be angry at someone, be angry at the people making and selling "Armored Backpacks" at $200 a pop, parents think their children will be safe...

That isn't going to protect the kids ,its a gimmick . The guy in Conn. hit the kids all over he wasn't aiming at packbacks and they weren't wearing backpacks and wouldn't have time to go the area where their packs and coats are stored anyway . The best way to protect our children is a Total Ban On Assault Weapons and large cap Mags and limited the amt of ammo these people can purchase . Treat guns like buying a car ,same way its called accepting responsibility as a gun onwer . Insurance at 1 for each gun and end the private sales and close all loopholes . We aren't living in the era of the musket or the single shot ,shotgun.

You couldn't be more wrong on the banning of ANY kind of weapon, if there is someone that wants to do harm, nothing will stop them, whether you realize it or not, criminals don't follow the letter of the law...

Uhm, Patricia, you are dead wrong.

Gimmick or not I would rather have my child have one than not. It is better than nothing. I know you think its a fantasy world we live in where bulletproof backpacks stop school shooters but an even greater fantasy world is the one you live in thinking that I would ever give up my "assault weapon" I love how you use the incorrect term too. Assault weapons are fully automatic by the way. If you think ANY of us are going to give up our rifles in any shape or form you're crazy... A POLICE OFFICER AT EVERY SCHOOL! ARMED SECURITY IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.

But they would have a better chance and that's what its for, just a one up on the crazies who like those poor unsuspecting kids and teachers in Connecticut,never had a clue not an incline of a belief that that could happen ... well and I say its not on them it's on our disassociative complacent, society its time we take back our schools, our government, our country, a.d last but

Not a bad concept, but kids don't keep their backpacks with them, or at least I never did and mine don't, they get stuffed in a locker. I also also don't seem to recall keeping a backpack more than a year or two at the most. More of a feel good product, really.

I wish they just sold the insert. Swap to any backpack or large purse as needed.
