Parents React to Newtown: Sales of Bulletproof Backpacks Soar

This is such a sad statement on our society that parents now feel they must protect their children by sending them off to school with bulletproof backpacks:

Shame, shame, shame on the NRA for pushing gun advocacy so far that non gun owners fear for their safety and the safety of their children.

Gun sales continue to rise in the wake of Newtown and parents send their children off to school with bulletproof backpacks.

Absurd, sad, sick… Life is so precious. Our society is f*cked up right now there are no words! If folks need another reason not to shop Wal-Mart here it is:

Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, said yesterday that it would continue to sell guns, including rifles like the one used at Newtown, where 26 people, most of them children, were killed on Dec. 14. By contrast, Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (DKS) suspended sales of similar guns at its more than 500 stores.

Gun control can’t come soon enough for me… And a conversation about the 2nd amendment as well. I simply feel at this point that the Framers must be rolling in the graves over this. They could have never foreseen the U.S. would evolve to this.
