Bulletproof school supplies introduced in response to school shootings

 
Today and tomorrow, nearly 100 school safety leaders from across the state of Maryland will meet in Annapolis, the state capital, to discuss ways to ensure students feel safe in school and methods for protecting students in the event of a critical emergency. 

 

This meeting comes in the wake of school shootings that have plagued our country at almost every level of education—Sandy Hook Elementary School, Columbine High School, Virginia Tech and most recently, Reynolds High School in Oregon on June 10.

 

Sensing that people are wanting to have more methods of defense in schools, companies are introducing bulletproof school supplies to help protect students. Brands such as BulletBlocker, Hardwire and ProTecht have released bulletproof backpacks, whiteboards, blankets, iPad cases, door covers and more.

 

This week on The Today Show, BulletBlocker founder Joseph Curran told NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk that “technology has given [him] the ability to protect [his children].”

 

The University of Maryland Eastern Shore recently bought 200 bulletproof whiteboards from the military supplier Hardwire for $60,000. In today and tomorrow’s meetings, should Maryland lawmakers consider instituting this technology in all Maryland schools? Would you want this technology implemented in your school?

 

While there is a growing fear that a gunman could open fire in our own schools, are bulletproof supplies the right solution to this complex problem? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
