"How about gun control legislation instead""



In this week's comments update, readers are saddened after self-defence brand Guard Dog suggested that children should start wearing bulletproof backpacks.
Back to school: readers are alarmed after the CEO of self-defence brand Guard Dog told Dezeen that children going to school or public places should be given bulletproof backpacks.
"Such an excellent idea," said Pauldale Foto sarcastically. "At last, someone is finally putting the onus on the victim to protect themselves. Next, potential rape and abuse victims should wear impenetrable underwear and pedestrians should wear airbags so cars don't kill them."
"How about gun control legislation and a regular backpack"" asked Neels Violet.
Troels Steenholdt Heiredal continued: "This is not the solution. It once again removes the responsibility to act from those in power and places it on the victims. This is a political problem that needs a political solution. Stop wasting time with this and call your political rep and demand that they do something." Trent was equally frustrated: "Oh America: hang your head in shame that it's come to this!"
