  1. At the rate we're going, they will probably have students wear bullet proof gear head to toe literally ever second of the school day. It's sad. Nothing is safe anymore in this country.

  2. This is just 2 tell us senate ain't gon do nothing…They should ban all military style 🔥 arms.
    Make small guns dat can only hold 5 bullets.

  3. U teach them not to touch hot stoves, fire etc. We also teach them not to talk to strangers. We now have gps watches to find our kids, this is just another teaching tool for safety.

  4. If these packs don't stop rifle rounds, they are worthless in my book. Besides, children can easily panic and forget what they were taught, concerning the proper use of the pack.

  5. If someone is going to shoot up a school, it’ll be someone under 21, which means that they’ll be using a gun legal for their age— which means it’ll be a rifle, such as an AK or AR. Waste of money.

  6. Thank the republicans for no gun control I had a m one in the service automatic weapons are only for war what has happened to our country
    Where are our ministers priests and our Jewish leaders to fight against what has happened with these killings not one says a word are they afraid of loosing money

  7. What exactly is the purpose of telling the kids its a bullet proof back pack? Just let them wear it like any other back pack.

  8. America has never the greatest country in the world but this is just sad you guys are lost I hope it gets better god speed

  9. So it has once again all gone wrong for the Democrats who continue to have fake events created to try and persuade people to give up carrying guns. More guns have been purchased since the campaign of the Democrats to attack the Constitution over gun control than ever before. The media have yet to decide if the so called gunman enter the site at around 11. am or early afternoon, for one, and then to claim that a young man being escorted from a car, on the highway, was the shooter, as the shooter was supposed to be on the premises. Give me strength!

  10. It's sad that it took these shootings but it's a good thing that people are taking some personal responsibility to protect themselves and their loved ones. So many people seem to feel that their protection is a right or something when the truth is that the only person responsible for your safety is you.

  11. the manufacturer says it'll stop up to a 44 Mag do you have any idea the foot pounds a 44 mag has behind it even if the bullet doesn't go through it would be like getting kicked by horse

  12. These should not be sold for profit!! They should be GIVEN to anyone who wants one!! Our government wastes our tax dollars on so much garbage like giving it to other country's. SPEND IT HERE ON OUR CITIZENS!!! AMERICA FIRST!! We wouldn't need things like this IF VIOLENT OFFENDERS WERE AFRAID OF THE PUNISHMENT!! Sitting in prison for years on end being taken care of is "really scary"!! DEMAND VERY HARSH AND VERY QUICK PUNISHMENT FOR VIOLENT OFFENDERS!! DON'T ARREST THESE ANIMALS TO INTERROGATE IT!! IT HAS LEFT A "PROVERBIAL PAPER TRAIL" THAT WILL TELL LAW ENFORCEMENT ALL IT NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THESE ANIMALS, JUST LIKE THEY ARE WITH THE DAYTON OHIO KILLER. STOP BLAMING THE INANIMATE TOOL/OBJECT IT USES TO COMMIT THE VIOLENT ACT, DO WE BLAME THE VEHICLE THAT A ANIMAL USES TO RUN DOWN INNOCENT PEOPLE? NO WE DON'T!! AND STOP WITH THESE "GUN FREE ZONES" THAT JUST TELLS THE ANIMAL WHERE TO GO UNOPPOSED!! STOP WITH ALL THE BLAME THIS THAT AND THE OTHER THING!! IT IS THE ANIMATE ANIMAL THAT DOES THESE HORRIBLE THINGS!! PERIOD!!

  13. Jesus Christ how can not Anyone of you be scared for the school starts in America I would be like skipping school every day to avoid a school shooting, luckily I live in Sweden and last school shooting that happened here was in 2015 and the killer didn’t even have a gun it was a sword because guns are illegal in Sweden and very hard to get

  14. I'm going to be a senior in high school and I've decided I'm going to teach myself to fight in case anything happens. Maybe I can even see if my school friends will be interested in learning too. Instead of learning to play dodge ball, why didn't they teach karate instead?

  15. Chicago and Baltimore have the toughest gun laws on the books both are murder capitals of the USA and both are democratically-controlled have been for the past 50 years no amount of gun control laws would have stopped any of this. In the early nineties Bill Clinton outlawed the sale of all military style rifles. Yet murder rates stayed the same. the truth is this is societal problem you have to think three quarters the country is on Prozac are some kind of antidepressant coupled with social media the need to go viral peer pressure not to mention growing racial tensions and the overall stress of living in today's society …. America is now a powder keg waiting to blow

  16. I know it's not all this easy, but why not let them have all the guns they want, but stop selling bullets . . . ?
