Florida School Offers Parents Bulletproof Panels for Student Backpacks | National News | US News

Parents at one Miami-area school are being offered the chance to purchase bulletproof panels for their children’s backpacks to guard against a school shooting.

Florida Christian School, a K-12 nondenominational private school, distributes an order form for the $120 ballistic panel on its website. The insert, which reportedly weighs less than a book, can be slipped into a backpack as a security tool, the school’s head of security told The Miami Herald.

“It’s just a tool,” said George Gulla. “I’d rather be prepared for the worst than be stuck after saying, ‘Wow, I wish we would’ve done that.'”

Gulla reportedly has employed a number of other security measures at the school, including sound-enabled surveillance cameras and uniformed security guards. He’s also held active-shooter drills in which students are told to hold their backpacks close to their chests as a protective layer.

The less-than-a-pound soft armor plates can turn backpacks into potentially lifesaving bullet-blockers, but they’re not required, Gulla said. The plates are reportedly able to stop bullets from a handgun like a .44 Magnum or a .357 SIG, but not rifle bullets that would require heavier armor.

The panels are produced by Applied Fiber Concepts – an area body armor company founded by Alex Cejas, a parent at the school. Last year, Cejas attended one of Gulla’s active-shooter drills, which led to his company offering to make custom plates for students.

“While books and stuff in your backpack may stop a bullet, they’re not designed to,” Cejas told the Herald. “I wouldn’t bet my life on it.”

An ongoing, nationwide debate on gun control in the U.S. has continually resurfaced over the years in conjunction with mass shootings, some of which have occurred on educational campuses.

In 2012, a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, left 20 children and six staff members dead. Most recently, the public debate on guns has flared in the wake of mass killings at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, last weekend and at a Las Vegas outdoor music festival last month. High-powered weapons were used in each.

Such incidents have helped create a market for things like the bulletproof backpack panels and other protective items.

Fake News Alert: “Unsecured” Guns Kill Kids

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- If people are sincerely interested in reducing the number of children that are killed with guns in the United States, it ill serves them to lie about the numbers.

It creates distrust in everything that they say. It creates suspicion about their real motives.

In a story out of Flint, Michigan, the reporter claims that “the agencies” say that more than 7,000 children are killed every year in the United States “from” unsecured guns.

From abc12.com (WJRT):

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Flint Police Department are passing out 300 gun locks to keep children safe.

The agencies say more than 7,000 children are killed every year from unsecured guns in the United States.

That number is false. The total number of people under the are of 18, who were killed with firearms, unsecured or not, was 1458, about 20% of the claimed figure.  It is unknown how many of those were with “unsecured” firearms. The term “unsecured” is undefined in the story.

A quick check with WISQARS, the database maintained by the CDC, shows the real numbers for the last year available, 2015.

From the  Center for Disease Control (CDC) for 2015, the latest year available, 77 people under the age of 18 were killed in fatal firearm accidents that year. It is unknown how many of those firearms were unsecured. Clearly, many were secured, as many of those fatal accidents occurred at the hands of an adult.

566 people under the age of 18  killed themselves in a suicide with a firearm, according to the CDC. How many were in legal possession of the firearm when they committed suicide is unknown.

765 people under the age of 18 were killed in homicides committed with a firearm. Again, we do not know how many of those were committed with a firearm that was under the control of an adult, or of a person under the age of 18 who had legal control of the firearm.

The total for all the deaths of people under the age of 18 from someone using a firearm, according to the CDC, was 1458, so 50 deaths occurred where the intent was unknown.

1458 is a little more than one fifth of the the 7000 claimed in the article. But that is all deaths, whether the firearm was secured or not. We do not know in how many cases the firearm was secured, how many cases the person who used the firearm had legal access, or how many cases the person who used the firearm breached the security on the firearm in order to use it.

John Lott, in research designed to see if laws requiring firearms to be locked up reduced deaths where a firearm was used, found no effect on juvenile deaths. However, violent crime and property crime increased.

From econpapers.repec.org:

Abstract: It is frequently assumed that safe-storage gun laws reduce accidental gun deaths and total suicides, while the possible impact on crime rates is ignored. We find no support that safe-storage laws reduce either juvenile accidental gun deaths or suicides. Instead, these storage requirements appear to impair people’s ability to use guns defensively. Because accidental shooters also tend to be the ones most likely to violate the new law, safestorage laws increase violent and property crimes against law-abiding citizens with no observable offsetting benefit in terms of reduced accidents or suicides.

The research does not show the effect of private efforts to handle firearms safely. Safe storage can be part of that effort. Private efforts to increase gun safety, overall, seem to have been effective. The rate of fatal firearm accidents in the United States has been reduced by 94 percent in the last 85 years.

NEW Shoulder Rig Instructions


About:

MTR Custom Leather shoulder rigs not only profound in concealment, function and comfort, they also accommodate changes in the user’s carrying routine. You can purchase individual horizontal or vertical shoulder holsters only to accommodate different handguns. A second holster of your choice can be added to the same shoulder rig to create a OO7 rig. All shoulder rigs comes with one holster, one double ammo pouch and ties for each.

 

Assembly:

  1. Verify contents of bag. Each shoulder rig should include: one holster, one double ammo pouch with tie downs on each.
  2. Check fit of your gun and ammo pouch, then break-in as needed. Please follow the instructions on the back of your thank you letter for a guide to break in your leather goods.

 

Tie-Downs:

Tie-downs are designed to anchor the shoulder rig components to your gun belt. Tie-downs are optional items and are used as a matter of personal preference. You can take on the attached tie downs by easily un-snapping the directional military snap (Refer to small instruction sheet on how to work the military directional snap).

  • Tie-downs to connect ammo pouch to gun belt
  • Tie-downs to connect holster to gun belt
  • Tie-downs allows for the harness to stay in place when in movement.

 

Instructions:

  1. Put your empty shoulder rig on like you would a coat or, some prefer to put it on over there head like a t-shirt. The flexible swivel base plate located on the back of the shoulder rig with 4 screws should be centered between your shoulders blades below the base of the neck. Make sure that the natural color side of the shoulder rig is against the body and the smooth color side is facing the outside. This will allow friction and stability of the shoulder rig on your clothing. Also, sweating or body oils will not affect the natural backing. It will actually allow for a more comfortable feeling.
  2. Insert the unloaded handgun and magazine/speed loaders in there pouch.
  3. Adjust the ride height and cant position of the holster and ammo pouch to the most concealable and comfortable fit for your body type. This adjusting process of the shoulder rig is critical; spend the time to get the correct correct fit. A rig that is set up in a hurried fashion results in a sloppy fit and compromised function. Many users find it easier to have another person adjust the shoulder rig for them while they remain stationary. This can be done by adjusting the screws on the each strap of the rig. Adjusting the the holster and ammo pouch consist of 2 straps each. To angle the rig, one strap may be higher than the other strap.
  4. Once it’s fitted correctly, remove shoulder rig carefully, trying to not alter the adjustments.
  5. Secure all hardware in place. Ensure that all screws are tighten snugly. Applying a small amount of clear fingernail polish to the threads will minimize screw back-out.
  6. Put shoulder rig back on and recheck all adjustments.
  7. When you are absolutely certain of all adjustments you may trim off excess leather straps length. Please consider the following:
  1. It often may require wearing the shoulder rig for several days before fine tuning is complete.
  2. Before permanently shortening the rig, keep in mind future use with seasonal clothing, body armor, weight fluctuations, etc.

Henry Repeating Arms Has A Production Problem ,,, Maybe

Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- I repeat MAYBE…

We have a production problem,” words the guns manufacturing industry does not want to hear. Management sees the bottom line slipping. The production staff sees headaches in parts manufacturing and the assembling of final products. The sales department sees the loss of products going out to customers and worst yet the loss of income coming in.

No one is happy when you hear the words “we have a production problem.”
