Just in time for back to school shopping.
Right next door assault rifles are on sale.
To quote Canadian folk/pop artist Bruce Cockburn: “The Trouble with Normal is it always gets worse!”
Even children’s backpacks are now available in bullet proof
Heaven forbid that we should lock up the criminals! I say unsupervised parole is still cruel and unusual punishment!
Latest store on the block: Kevlar for Kids.
’Tis the bad news of shootings that drives the fashion now, not the seasons
Guns Don’t Die, People Do
She walked out the door
Said, “I’m going to the store.”
Now she’s dead on the floor
And they won’t see her anymore
Guns don’t die, mothers do
They set off for school
To learn the golden rule
Just to have some fool
Kill them with his killing tool
Guns don’t die, children do
This country is flooded with tools of hate
Meanwhile the NRA celebrates
Let’s buy them all back and melt them all down
Then we won’t have as many guns around
They were out on a date
That’s when they met their fate
Through the turnstile gate
Now for them it’s too late
Guns don’t die, people do
Guns don’t cry, but people do
So versatile too. Whether going shopping, clubbing, church, school or…
Alas the NRA is rolling out their fall line of armor-piercing bullets. Because freedom.
And don’t forget to bring your teacher a box of S&W .40 hollow points. It’ll get you a gold star for sure. And to think that 19 good guys with guns sat outside a classroom in Uvalde.
Quite sad, actually,…
That is good business: sell guns to the kids and bullet-proof gear to thei parents.
We seem to have a whole lot of people who value their guns more than their kids, and are proud of that.
This what America the free looks like now. Where’s the freedom?
The new school fashions are coming out later this summer. Exciting new line of camouflage…blends you right into a bookshelf or the top of line fashion …jackets looking bullet riddled and bloody…blend in.
The back-to-school line, no doubt.
A REMINDER: The government has NO DUTY to protect any of us from crime.
Vote GOP for cheap fossil fuel, With the money you save, you can buy Kevlar clothing for your kids back-to-school wardrobe.
The Politicians are seeking to outlaw the private ownership of body armor. Only the state-employed gun users would be entitled to wear that.
sad comment that bulletproof vests for dogs is now a major business in our economy
Saw a news item this weekend. Some models of rocking swings are being banned in the US because nine kids have tragically died while sleeping in them over the last eleven years. Of course it is horrible that these kids died, but it’s one kid a year; while 4500 people, far too many of them kids, are killed by guns here every year. And we can’t even have a civil, honest and, god forbid, non-partisan conversation about the safety of guns. 90% of us want change, yet 10% stall everything. This is democracy? Come on people, vote these zealots out and find people, of whatever political stripe you prefer, who can put the good of all of us before their own narrow self-interest; lest we lose our great experiment in democracy.
Maybe if we just made the bullets softer?
Aim for the knees!
The first reaction after such an event is despair and grief. The next is possible flight, but schools and churches seem to have become the targets of choice, and every community has them.
Seems obvious to me and to others that the best way to reduce the numbers of these horrible events is to limit the sale and possession of rapid-fire weapons and to place limits on possession in general. Person owns a dozen guns and says it’s a collection, but who never shows them? Gotta wonder what that person is thinking as he looks at them day after day.
Some suggest a requiring a permit that includes at least some formal training in the care and use. Might work for many, who just ‘gotta have one for protection.’ Won’t change those who have some kind of grudge against schools or churches or who choose them because there is less likelihood of facing armed response.
Whatever results from all the ‘discussion,’ it is unlikely any solid legislation will be produced from the waffle-burgers in DC in the coming years. Stalling is what they do best.
Yay! Chicago, Detroit, WashingtonDC and other Democrat run utopias with extreme gun control laws! Though. . . I hear they are working to rob people of bullet proof protection there now. Oh well. I’m sure adding more laws will encourage the criminals to FINALLY start obeying them.
Remember “Bulletproof Backpacks”?
They’re not as good as morality, but they’ll do in a pinch during social decay.
Looks like time to get out of Dodge.
The best armor is not going into the area where the bullets are! The Uvalde police had that figured out.
As Gov Abbott and our two Texas senators said, if all children had guns there wouldn’t be anymore school shootings.
Back-to-school promotions, ALREADY?
…finally the stores on the Magnificent Mile are getting with the program…
Can’t be New York – they just outlawed Kevlar. Not hard body armor, just Kevlar that only stops pistol ammo.
Dog body armor to protect from cat snipers?
It looks like she and her husband are already wearing Kevlar vests, but they aren’t in the latest style.
I expect that school uniforms will all soon be made of kevlar. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened already.
Do they come in boob sizes?
The NRA’s new fall line of fashions for the whole family.
Unfortunately, kevlar is worthless against assault rifles. Unless you are also willing to carry around twenty pounds of ceramic anti-ballistic plates, you are better off working toward gun control legislation.
This is not a joke to me. I live in Texas.
Wiley has been on fire lately. I may not agree with his points of view but I sure appreciate the effort.
Most of the Kevlar franchises are in Texas.
What a bunch of moronic ignorant comments.
Wiley is spot on with his commentary
Back to school sale
Sat night (2AM) I got up to use the bathroom. I Swear that I heard shots in the distance. I’m in a quiet neighborhood in Madison WI.
actually had this conversation at the gun counter. Armor piercing bullets are scarier than an particular firearm, IMHO>
I live in FL. Too hot most of the year to wear Kevlar.
Just in time for Back to School.
I was confronted with gun violence in the 1980s while working in Bank of America’s S.F. Headquarters Legal Dept. I worked in the Litigation section on the 7th floor. On the 8th floor a disgruntled ex-employee was holding hostage at gun point the attorney advising on personnel matters. The gunman blamed the attorney for his firing. I did not know what was happening until S.W.A.T team members rushed past my desk fully armed. Not too much later, a disgruntled client of the law firm located at 100 California St. went on a rampage and proceeded to massacre many many innocent people. Then a few years later, while working at a law firm in S.F. I observed from the high rise window a person in full bomb detail uniform scan the area of a major bank for bombs.
Shopping for school clothes already.
The not so new, not so normal, normal.
What no colors other than grey or black?
How sad is that.
back to school shopping in the USA
Only for the people who live in the nightmare world of Leftist scare tactics.
John Wick just had it sewn into the lining of his jacket. Easy Peasey
We’re all going to need them soon…just to go to the grocery store, church, park, you name it.
Can’t buy them in New York anymore. Since the last psycho wore one, now being protected from bullets makes you a threat to others, and they made them illegal.
Thanos said. you should have gone for the head. So..,
On one occasion when he was promulgating his proposed firearms ban in Australia, our Prime Minister, John Howard, wore one of those under his jacket. We’d had a few gangland shootings, and there was the massacre at Port Arthur (look it up) but his solution wasn’t to disarm the gangs but to take the firearms from the law-obeying citizens. We still have gangland shootings; but no massacres. Yet.
Is the Fall line Fleece Lined?
This isn’t satire anymore; it’s the sad truth.
