Sad But True: Bulletproof Blankets For Schools

I recently discovered this product, and just sat there shaking my head. It’s the “Bodyguard ™ Blanket”, a bullet resistant blanket for children and adults. It consists of ultra-high density polyethylene fiber and a thin layer of Impact Gel ™ which render it very impact resistant. 

Alas, protection comes at a price. Each small size (designed for children under 5 feet tall) retails for $1011.49. Medium blankets are priced at $1416, and large (for 6 foot tall or larger) are $1623. They are available from ProTecht, based in Edmond, OK. For more info, check out this link.

Bottom line: So sad that something like this even needs to exist!
