Middle School Students Gifted With Bullet Proof Backpacks In Preparation For High School.

The entire 8th grade class at a middle school in Pennsylvania left their graduation with a gift to “prepare them for high school.”

According to the New York Post, all the students were given bulletproof, military-style shields for their backpacks as a present.

The products are called SafeShield and are made by Unequal Technologies, a sports gear and protective gear company. They have a 10-by-12-inch panel and 20-ounce plate.

“Handguns are useless against a product like this. Shotguns are useless against a product like this,” said Rob Vito, the company’s president. “They’ll stop the most powerful handguns in the world — .44 Magnums, .357 Sigs.” However, the product reportedly does not protect against semi-automatic rifles.

“I never thought I’d need this,” one student said according to Fox 29.
