School Shootings

It’s a scenario that no parent wants to imagine: their child being caught in the crosshairs of a school shooting.

The tragedy that unfolded at Sandy Hook Elementary School and countless other incidents since then have made us all realize that no place is safe from gun violence, not even our schools.

Gun violence and school shootings are a uniquely American epidemic. Sandy Hook Promise is shining a light on these vital facts and statistics.  

violence in America

Each day 12 children die from gun violence in America. Another 32 are shot and injured.

Every number you see stands for a person, often a child, with hopes, dreams, and loved ones who cherished them.

We  wondered about the children who were represented by these numbers. What did they want to be when they grew up? What was their favorite color? What made them laugh?

That is the reality

There were more school shootings in 2022 -46- than in any year since Columbine. This mirrored America’s broader rise in gun violence as it emerged from the pandemic. 

That is the reality of childhood and education in the United States in 2023.

Over the past year, hearts have been shattered by the war crimes committed against children in Ukraine (over eight thousand civilians have already been killed in that conflict), and yet Americans are almost completely numb to the horrors experienced by children here.

This is a serious Problem

The Vestpak is a small but important step in the right direction.

It’s time to take school shootings seriously, and work together to create a safer future for our children and our communities. Let’s make sure that tragedies like this never happen again.

It’s time for a change. Enough is enough. Every day, we hear about another school shooting. It’s a serious problem that we need to address head-on.

Children and families in the U.S. are facing a vast problem, but you can help. Share these facts, know the signs, and let’s act to protect them before it’s too late. 


It's time for us to come together

It’s hard to believe that we live in a world where something like this is necessary, but we do.

As much as we wish it weren’t the case, school shootings are a reality we must face.

With the Vestpak bulletproof backpack, we can help protect our children and give them a little bit of extra peace of mind. It may not solve the problem entirely, but it’s a start .

The Vestpak looks like a regular backpack but it has an added layer of protection that can help protect students in the event of an active shooter situation.

Made with high-quality Kevlar, the backpack can stop a bullet from most handguns and even some assault rifles.

In addition to the bulletproof material, the backpack has multiple compartments for storing books, school supplies, and even laptops. It’s comfortable to wear and easy to use, making it the perfect backpack for any student.
