Colombian bulletproof clothing designer launches new CHILDREN’S line of vests and backpacks in wake of Sandy Hook massacre

A Colombian company that makes stylish bulletproof clothing has launched a new line of child-sized vests and backpacks in the wake of the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

Miguel Caballero says his firm will begin making bulletproof clothing for children in the next two weeks.

The garments are lightweight and look like normal clothing, but they are capable of stopping a bullet from a pistol or submachine gun.

Twenty first graders were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14 – leaving some parents to search for answers about how to make their children safer at school.

Some groups have advocated arming teachers and principals. Others, including the National Rifle Association, have said armed guards need to be placed at every school in the nation.

Caballero says his bulletproof clothing, which costs several thousand dollars apiece, could be one answer.

The Bogota businessman, who is famous for shooting his employees at close range to demonstrate the effectiveness of his products, hopes to capitalize on the new-found fear some students and parents have about their safety at schools.

It’s unknown whether he has gotten interest from families in Newtown.
