Every time a mass shooting happens in the U.S., a local bulletproof merchandise retailer sees an increase in sales...but this latest surge is unlike anything they've experienced before.
Nick Taylor, with Bulletproofme.com, says his company is struggling to meet the influx of calls.
While you've probably heard of bulletproof vests, bulletproof backpacks are now one of the most popular items requested.
You can use your own backpack, or briefcase, it's the insert that transforms it into bulletproof protection.
Taylor said, "It think it's a reminder to a lot of people that it is a dangerous world and people who have been thinking about purchasing body armor, it just prompted them to make the call."
