Sales of Bulletproof Backpacks for School Children Up to 300 Percent This Year
Wednesday, 21 August 2019 11:10 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

After enjoying a long summer vacation, children in America get ready to go back to school in late August or early September.

In addition to receiving school supplies, adults also buy special backpacks, bulletproof backpacks for their children. Especially after the mass shooting tragedy in El Paso, Texas, Dayton, Ohio and Gilroy California, some time ago.

Throughout 2019, there have been 22 cases of shootings in American schools that have caused injuries or damage. The shooting took place in various parts of America ranging from Georgia to California, in elementary school to university.

The defeat of parents against school shootings caused sales of bulletproof bags to rise by 200 to 300 percent this year. The price of the bulletproof backpack is around 120 to 490 dollars.

To CNN, Steve Naremore, director of the TuffyPack company that sells bulletproof bags, said, "It's great that we have to have this kind of product, but this is the problem we have to face at the moment and will easily not appear again in the future."

A mother who lives in the city of El Paso told PBS News Hour to ask, a police officer, to buy bulletproof bags for boys.
