Back-to-school shopping ain't what it used to be.
Bulletproof bookbags have joined new shoes, crayons, and gummy pink erasers on the list of must-have items.
Per MJ Safety Solutions, maker of the bags: "Now you can provide on the spot protection against guns and knife violence ... provide Level II ballistic protection, as found in most police body armor, at almost 1/10 the weight." Their online checkout is having a hard time handling the demand, even at $175 a pop.
Has it really come to this?
