The sales of bulletproof backpacks have soared following the shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 dead and 14 wounded.
"Sales of Bullet Blocker's fortified backpacks, which cost anywhere between $200 and $500, have seen a 30 per cent boost in sales. The company claimed it sold 500 of the bags on Thursday, the day after the attack," the Daily Mail reports.
Joe Curran, the company's owner, said most of the backpacks are due to be sent to Florida, he told TMZ.
On Bullet Blocker's website, there are up to 12 different bulletproof backpacks, ranging from $199 to $490.
The BulletBlocker NIJ IIIA Bulletproof Covert Backpack, which costs $330 online, is described as having an anti-ballistic panel which weighs roughly 20 oz, the same as a water bottle.
The item comes in three different colours and has removable BulletBlocker NIJ IIIA Bulletproof Covert Backpack.
The product, which is tested to NIJ IIIA standards, is capable of stopping a 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, 9mm, .45 caliber hollow point ammunition and more.
