Roger’s note: I am reminded of the drop drills we had when I was in elementary school in the immediate post WWII years. In case of atomic attack, the teacher would yell “DROP!” and we would dive under our desks. This surely would have protected us from an atomic blast. Security is not a matter of weapons or bullet proof accessories, but rather a just social and economic system. Of course, fear mongering is good and profitable for enterprising capitalists such as the one described here. So, hurry, get your bullet proof blanket today, supplies are limited! And pick up your automatic weapon and rounds while you’re at it!
When will they ever learn?

An Oklahoma podiatrist has designed the Bodyguard Blanket, a bulletproof pad offering “an extra layer of protection” against “90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the United States.” In their soft-focus, schmaltzy-music-festooned video, kids romp on “just an ordinary day” until – dark music for “when seconds count” – they dutifully strap on their blankets and hunch on the floor under some capitalist’s wet dream of a money-making scheme because that’s all the kids will have thanks to gutless politicians who’ve failed to do anything else to protect them against our national lunacy, and no this is not The Onion.
