British Parents Buy Body Armor For Children

, , ,

Daily Mail:

Worried parents are buying their children body armour to protect them from knife attacks.

A firm that supplies stab and bullet-proof vests to government agencies around the world said it had been flooded with orders following a series of brutal knife murders on Britain’s streets.

VestGuard UK said it had received more than 100 calls from parents in London alone. It normally receives only one or two inquiries nationwide each year.

Some 60 jackets, costing between £300 and £425, have been sold – with parents saving up to buy the armour.

The American approach is cheaper, and more permanently effective.

Why don’t they just arm their children? After the first couple of attacks the assailants will get the picture. Ok, maybe that’s not the best idea, but I would, as a parent arm myself and then accompany my child. Too bad that is illegal in the UK.
