Bullet-resistant blanket offers kids protection against school shootings

An Oklahoma company has developed a blanket to help protect children during school shootings.

The Bodyguard Blanket offers temporary shelter from falling debris during natural disasters such as tornados, but it was designed to protect against gun violence.

The blanket is made from the same bullet-resistant material used in military and law enforcement body armor.

The material can be folded, and it has straps that hold the blanket in place like a backpack.

The manufacturer, ProTecht, intends to work with school districts and nonprofit organizations to offset the blanket’s $1,000 cost.
