    Meanwhile, in the rest of the world outside the US (war zones excluded) kids ad parents don’t have to worry about getting shot.

    You can actually buy bulletproof backpacks and bulletproof shields to go in backbacks.

    Don’t forget to get the “bullet resistant” insert for extra protection.

    The saddest strip Amend has ever done. Pray for your little ones in school, and make sure safety is a priority there.

    Comics like this and the comments it generates is what makes the next one say, “I can do better than the last one.”.

    Just keep feeding the hatred folks.

    If parents would teach their kids the difference between right and wrong they wouldn’t need Kevlar. No discipline. No respect. What do you expect?

    If I were Jason, I’d get the “Return of the Jedi” backpack. It’s my favorite Star Wars movie because of Jabba the Hutt.

    A backpack design that’s way out of date would be Mickey Mouse in his Steamboat Willy design.

    My son’s backpack lasted him from 6th grade through graduation. Not because we couldn’t afford a new one, because he liked it, and it wore well. I don’t get the need to buy a new one every 12 months.

    Yeah, but there is absolutely no correlation between the US’s love affair with guns and the record number of shootings.

    Maybe a backpack at the nearest Dollar Tree or Walgreens would do it.

    That’s not legal in some places, like the State of New York. It could be considered to be body armor.
