Following the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, sales of bullet proof backpacks are soaring, according to a story in The Washington Post.
Bullet Blocker, a company that sells bullet proof tactical gear, saw sales jump from 15 to 20 backpacks a week to 50 to 100 per day, according to the report.
Patch contacted several manufacturers, but none returned comment before publication.
