Bullet-proof backpacks? Abject foolishness. One of these might stop a bullet from a small caliber firearm, but certainly would be of no benefit in the event of a serious shooter. Parents who buy these backpacks are teaching fear. Far better would be a daily recitation of, “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.” Our children need moral guidance — not bullet-proof backpacks. Remember, it is our children doing the shooting.
