Sales of Bulletproof Backpacks Soar After Newtown Massacre

As some said on Current TV tonight, why not just take the prisoners out of the prisons and use the prisons for schools?

Welcome to America: 
The backpacks – which cost as much as $300 – weigh just slightly more than a regular backpack and can be easily swung to the front of the body to be used as a shield, or even “serve as center of mass protection while fleeing the scene of the shooting,” according to Amendment II. 

Demand for the product spiked so quickly following the shootings on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that the company’s website has crashed.
