CHARLESTON, SC- (WTAT-TV)–As the school year approaches, there is more on parents’ minds than just checking off supplies on their back-to-school list. In the wake of yet another school shooting, concerns for their children’s safety continues to grow. Even though fire and active shooter drills have longbeen a part of the educational system’s routine training, parents are looking for additional ways to be proactive.

Guard Dog Security has designed a bulletproof backpack made to resist fire from handguns and shotguns. Though there is no guarantee that the backpacks will save lives, the company hopes the fabric of the bookbag will help lessen the impact of a bullet. FOX News reporter, Joe Galli, puts the product to the test.
