Add that to the other books and notebooks inside the pack and you’ve got yourself a pretty solid shield to protect yourself with. Granted this will not stop rifle rounds, but it does add another layer of protection and peace of mind. My high school daughter carries one inside her backpack throughout the day.
The rigid backpack armor insert helps give me a little peace of mind when I send them off to school and also gives them a sense of security and confidence if something were to happen.

What Is Life Worth To You?
The United States Secret Service released a document titled Mass Attacks in Public Spaces – 2019. Within that document, they talked about the timing of the attacks. Here is what they said.
The attacks occurred on each day of the week and during every month of the year. Two-thirds of the attacks (n = 22, 65%) took place during the day and early evening, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Consistent with previous studies on targeted violence, the attacks in this study were frequently short in duration.
In 2021 there were at least 168 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, resulting in 36 deaths and 99 injuries nationally.
