More Ways to Make Schools Safe— Even Pre-Schools!

December 12, 2015

One of the signature features of the Naked Capitalism is linking two articles in one sentence that, once you go to the article, leaves your jaw on the floor. Here’s a classic example:

“That’s right: Legislation approved two weeks ago by the Republican-controlled Ohio House would allow state residents with concealed-carry permits to pack their loaded, hidden guns into day care centers when they drop off the kids” [New York Times]. It’s OK; the kiddies should be wearing their bulletproof blankies at all times anyhow.

I had read the NYTimes article earlier in the week and decided to blog instead on ESSA, whose undeserved and wholesale support from everyone warranted counter-balancing. But when I looked at the pictures of children wrapped in bullet proof blankets lying on the floor, my stomach turned. To save you a click, I’ve posted one of the pictures below:

The article reassuringly states that:

The Bodyguard Blanket, made by ProTecht, comes in different sizes and gives youngsters something to cower behind when the next disaffected killer goes on a murderous rampage.

The company said on its website: “Bodyguard blanket can be easily fastened around a child or adult, and is amazingly lightweight.

And the best news for ProTecht is that school districts across America are preparing their 2016-17 budgets now! They may have to cut something like guidance services, computers, or textbooks but at least the children will be safe “…when the next disaffected killer goes on a murderous rampage.” Or, if the “disaffected killer” shows up before school maybe one of the parents with a concealed weapon will take him or her out… or maybe that parent might be disaffected themselves.
