You Can Now Buy A Bulletproof Blanket Made Specifically For School Kids

This might be the most depressing thing you’ll read all week, but a company called ProTecht has now made a bulletproof blanket that is made specifically for school children, to shield them from bullets.

This is depressing to me not because a company has made this incredible product, but because we live in a world where our children and educators have to think about having bulletproof blankets in school. I remember when I was a kid in school our drills were all about ‘stopping, dropping and rolling’ in case of fire. Now, our kids go through lock down procedures in case someone unstable decides to shoot up their school. What a scary world we live in.

The Bodyguard Blanket, according to it’s website, ‘is made of the same materials our U.S. soldiers wear while in battle, and is equal to or exceeds the protection used by our police departments. After extensive research, it is estimated that Bodyguard™ blanket provides bullet resistant protection against 90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the United States.’

The blanket is made in child sizes as well as adult sizes, and is made to be easily fastened around a child should the need arise.

While I hate that it’s come to a point in our world where we need bulletproof blankets in our kids schools, I’d be OK if my kids had these in their schools. I’d still rather there be less guns and school shootings, but I’d also feel much better knowing my kids had safe options at school in the event of a tragedy. What do you think Hot Moms?
