So, this is what it's come to:  bullet-proof blankets for our school children.  

They were originally intended to protect children in case of natural disasters, like tornadoes.  However, with the incredible number of school shootings, the company has seen a dramatic increase in sales to protect children in case a crazed gunman comes into their school.

The cost is $1,000 each and many schools (and parents) are showing an interest.
