Tuesday’s attack has shaken the world and raises the question of how it could happen again. With confusing timelines and survival stories, companies that sell bulletproof backpacks are seeing a spike in products.

Guard Dog will donate recent income to Make Hour Schools Safe. The nonprofit was started in 2018 by Margery Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, as a hunting parent.
Other companies such as Wonder Hoody and MC Armor reported increased sales. A spokesman for MC Armor said customers from all over the world are looking to buy. What sets their products apart is that they are for children and are “approved and designed by pediatricians.”
States that are ordering more products, such as bulletproof backpacks, include Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, California and Pennsylvania.
