    I heard an ad on the radio where the store (a Vape shop) said they carried backpacks, both normal and "bullet proof." Thinking that "Bullet Proof" was just a brand name I did a search and found this:

    https://www.amazon.com/SHIELD-PACK-Bulletproof-School-Backpack/dp/B00DZX1QUM

    Supposedly (one reviewer did a test) these can stop a 9mm or .45 ACP.

    Not a terrible idea, really.

    Goofy looking backpack.

    Give me an old Jansport. Do they still make those? They were like the only backpack around in my middle and high school days. There was a variation of maybe five different colors, and all with the brown leather bottom. The padded back made them awesome for sleeping on. Sometimes when I'm having trouble sleeping at night, I'll think back to laying my head on my old Jansport, in a very cold classroom, to the background noise of shuffling papers and quiet murmur. It knocks me right out.

    I believe a middle school kid invented it for a school project down in Mexico after there was an insane shootout near a school and the idea was to not get killed by a stray bullet while running away.







    I translate for non Spanish speakers, first video is a kindergarten teacher calming and singing to kindergarteners to keep them calm while there is a massive gunbattle right outside the classroom. The second video is a 13 year old that designed "anti-balas" (bulletproof) backpack..... In Tamualapas that is arguably one of the states in Mexico that is more like Mogadishu than any other state in Mexico.

    It wasn't as bad until the Zetas and Gulf Cartel split and went to war with each other.
    (There are videos on the Internet of live executions and beheadings they posted these guy are worse than ISIS). Then those two groups fractured into smaller ones and now it's all out AK's and machetes. It really just needs to be Nuked and start over.

    We had them a long time ago (at least to II/II-A) - back when we carried a s***load of books in them (instead of tablet computers).

    No need to spend so much money to get a bullet proof backpack, just fill a backpack with sand from your area. Kids these days......
