Would you seriously consider buying a bulletproof backpack or jacket/coat for your school aged child? If you don't have a school aged child, answer the question as if you did have a school aged child. (Isn't it sad that I have to clarify that?)

It is totally tragic that you have to answer that question. Just after the grade school shootings my granddaughter was singing the ABC song. It was all I could do not to cry.

Sure. Carrying that dead weight for no benefit whatsoever might toughen the kid up.

I would relocate if I felt my daughter constantly needed that level of protection

In this area, no. I feel pretty safe. In some areas though.... Maybe. The Kevlar-lined backpacks are an interesting idea, though.

Only if I lived in a democrat run gun free zone.

It is sad that you have to add that. And yes, I'd consider it. Where I live now is a very, very low risk area, but I've lived in some very shady places, too.

My kid would be home schooled if at all possible. But if I had no choice but to send him/her to be a sitting duck in a gun free zone every day, I think I'd at least consider it.

It depends on how you define school aged 😈
Just joking, no it's safe to go out here.

I'm gritting my teeth waiting for the inevitable "Well I'm 67, take classes at a community college, and consider myself a child at heart, so I down-rated this question because you should have addressed it to my parents."

Devs need to update SOH so we can add a three page disclaimer and address every conceivable variation possible with every poll.

No reason too unless I lived in a extremely high crime area.
