Bulletproof Books

School violence is a very serious subject. But Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart takes a hilarious look at some of the proposals that various politicians have made to try and combat the problem. One Wisconsin state representative has proposed passing out guns to school personnel in order to allow them to defend students against armed intruders. An Oklahoma school superintendent nominee also details his plan to provide books covered with bulletproof Kevlar so students can take cover behind them when confronted with a gunman. If all else fails, the students could throw their books at the intruder.
