Look how happy these guys are!
And why shouldn’t they be?
They just spent more than $25,000 from the budget of Minnesota’s Rocori School District on a bunch of 18x20 inch bulletproof whiteboards.
"The timing was right," Rocori school board Chairwoman Nadine Schnettler tells us. "The company is making these in response to the Newtown shooting, and has been making similar products for our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan."
The town’s police chief made the whiteboard pitch to the school board, says Schnettler. And members were pressed to act quickly, she says, to take advantage of a special offer: The granite company would donate 75 whiteboards to the district’s public and parochial schools if the board agreed to match the purchase.
Hurry! This kind of offer won’t be around for long! After all, with today’s bloated public school budgets, administrators can’t afford not to buy bulletproof whiteboards.
Because if someone tries to shoot at you in school, you can protect yourself with a whiteboard. And, if no one tries to shoot at you, well, at least you can write on it!
I think there can be no doubt that these little babies offer far more protection that any gun control measure ever could.
