(KCEN) -- A Utah-based company called Amendment II is now making children's backpacks lined with a light material that can stop handgun rounds.
The company says it used to only sell a small amount of children's body armor and backpacks at gun shows.
But ever since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, sales have skyrocketed, with people looking for ways, however unconventional, to protect their children.
Company Chief Operating Officer Rich Brand said, "Our armor was being bought to protect people, the preppers, is the term. At this point, it's transcended to everyone. Anyone who's sending out a child into the world, seeing what can happen now, they want to protect their children."
The backpacks retail from $150 to $300.
The company says it's seen a worldwide demand for its products, including child-sized body armor, so much so their website has crashed several times.
