Despite the recent attacks in California which killed 14 and may well have been terrorist acts, the United States Senate still found it necessary to vote down a bill which would have made it illegal for anyone on the terrorist watch list to purchase a firearm. Why did the GOP-controlled Senate not advance the bill? Simple: They didn’t want to piss of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Thanks to the NRA and the ammosexuals who slavishly hang on their every lie, there are lots of horrible things you can buy in this country, and they aren’t all weapons of mass murder, either. Take a look.

Bulletproof Backpacks

Yes, you did indeed read that correctly. Shortly after the Sandy Hook shootings, several companies that sell armored backpacks reported a significant increase in their sales. Check out how they market them:

    No other developed country has this problem. Then again their governments aren’t held hostage by terrorist organizations such as the NRA.

    • whatthe46

      and these bullet proof back packs aren’t being advertised to protect them from Muslims.

      • Boltorama

        Morning whatthe46 sweetie! How are you?

        • whatthe46

          awe. i’m good and you? weekends coming. YES YES YES. rg says i can have the weekends off. lol

          • Boltorama

            LOL yeah I can’t wait for the weekend. We sure can use a few days of R&R. I’m doing good it’s cold and misty in LA and I like it.

            • whatthe46

              it’s warm here in SA.

              • Boltorama

                It’s lunch hour there. Warming up leftover chuck roast for myself later on.

                • whatthe46

                  isn’t it 11 there?

                  • Boltorama

                    Yep but I usually eat around 1:00 which is the time I arrive home. Have you had lunch yet?

                    • whatthe46

                      i’m at lunch now. i usually go at 12:15, but i went at 1:30, i’m at my desk eating calamari. yum.

                    • Boltorama

                      Oh man that sounds good. I had calamari once at a Chinese buffet a while back. It was delicious. I’m not really a huge fan of seafood but I also love shrimp. Uh-oh! Must resist urge to snack!

                    • whatthe46

                      lol. i love seafood. i’m a new orleanian.

  • whatthe46

    to the people who are buying this, they do realize that these children aren’t wearing backpacks when they are in the classrooms right? and the backpacks won’t protect their heads and chest. damn shame.

    • Boltorama

      People will do crazy things in desperate times. Sad that this is occurring here.

  • Bunya

    Let me see if I understand this … is the backpack to protect the child or the gun inside the backpack? Because if it’s to protect the child, it’s not very effective. If she’s shot in the front or in the head, she’s toast.

    • whatthe46

      they are making money off of fear, because it’s not going to protect them in anyway.

    • Boltorama

      Our society has become a warring one with the intention of making a quick buck.

  • Dwendt44

    A good bullet proof backpack would be fairly heavy, just what the little tyke needs is more weight on their shoulders and backs. The better the ‘bullet proof’ part, the heavier the back pack. If the one pictured is any indication, I doubt it would stop a .223 bullet.

  • Warman1138

    Fear sells things and we can thank the GOP, NRA and all their pundits for providing that fear and preventing actions an intelligent and thoughtful society would take to reduce the reasons for such. Bullet proof this bullet proof that, thanks to the ” gotta have guns everywhere for everything nuts ” might as well make everything bullet proof because of the freaking idiots.
