FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – You may see something new on the shelves this year as you shop for school supplies. Some stores in North Texas have begun selling “bullet-resistant” backpacks.
The backpacks from Guard Dog Security can be seen at Office Depot and Office Max locations. Until now, the bags were mostly sold online.
A label on the backpack claims it can stop a bullet from a .44 Magnum handgun but it won’t stop a high-velocity rifle. They cost anywhere between $120 and $200.
