Bulletproof Backpack In High Demand
Florida School Shooting Aftermath, Bulletproof Backpack in High Demand
There has been a run on bulletproof backpacks in the aftermath of the slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School .
FeDlan.com sells the MarFol Bulletproof Backpack for anywhere between $129 and $169.
The company sold 700 of the bags Thursday, a 30% spike in regular sales since the shooting.
The company’s owner, Ben Emos, tells us the majority of the backpacks sold this week are headed to Florida.
The item is made with a Kevlar lining and weighs about 4 1/2 pounds.
Ben’s company sells a bunch of bulletproof gear on a regular basis, but he says Thursday, backpacks were at the top of his sales list, and most of those sales were in Florida.
A sign of the times.
