A business located in Cobb County had the original idea of creating bookcases with armor protection to be able to take care of the studentsthis after the May 24 massacre at the Uvalde elementary school in Texas, in addition to the growing wave of shootings that have occurred throughout the United States.
This innovative product serves as a shield due to its armored materials. According to the Telemundo news, each shelf has wheels, so in case there is an active shooter in any hallway, the teachers could roll the bookcases at the entrance of the classrooms and block them, managing to protect the children.
The owner of the company indicated that: “It was heartbreaking to think that children were trapped in a classroom. Several New Jersey schools have already installed this bookcase inventionalso two California corporate offices, put them in their break rooms.”
After the Uvalde shooting, the owner of the company commented that You have received many emails from teachers and directors of different schools throughout the country asking for information to acquire them.
“The most catastrophic event, when a gunman walks into a room and a bunch of people are trapped in there. That’s what we wanted to address, and I think this product does it perfectly”, added the businessman.
On the other hand, the founder and executive director of Leatherback Gear, Mike DeGeus, said last month that his company has seen an increase in 800% on the sales of your fortified backpacks, this since the unfortunate robb school shooting.
In an interview with TMZ, De Geus, who is a former Secret Service agent, pointed out that his brand’s backpacks offer the same amount of bulletproof armor that he had when he protected the children of American leaders.
