American Exceptionalism – A gun for every teacher and a bullet proof vest for every child – After Newtown, company makes bullet-proof kid clothes’
Yeah. Nothing says you’re the ‘greatest Nation on Earth like guns and bullet proof vests in schools.
Don’t even try to solve the real problem. Assault weapons with 30 round clips in the hands of people who don’t need and shouldn’t have them.
‘Miguel Caballero has been making bullet-proof clothes for politicians and other bigwigs for 20 years, but not for kids. The latest US school massacre has changed that’.
‘This year he plans a line for children — T-shirts, vests, and combination backpack-vests — and geared toward the US market’.
‘Caballero has made good money in his 22-year-old business with a factory on the outskirts of Bogota. He sells around 50,000 garments a year that go for about $2,000 a piece, but the US market had been tough to crack’.
‘Asked how you explain to a child that simply going to school can be so dangerous you have to wear a bullet proof vest, Ballesteros explained that her company’s garments are not designed for everyday use’.
‘Rather, they are for emergencies, to be handed out by teachers when needed’.
‘The new line is tailored for kids aged 8 to 16, with prices ranging from $200 to $400, depending on the garment and its size’.
“Three royal families in the Middle East are customers of ours. We made a bullet-proof kimono for the American actor Steven Seagal. Our experience is beyond question,” Ballesteros said’.
