    Lexan doesn't do so well. Worked with a guy building bulletproof man traps in Puerto Rico. 1" thick and weighs a LOT.
    Great article, thank you Popper. I hadn’t thought about the shrapnel from the lexan being an issue.
    Even more to think about now.

    If he isn't going to use it I'd pass.

    Over the 20 years or so there an average of 15 people who die in school shooting every YEAR. 11 kids die every DAY in texting and driving accidents. 1,000+ kids are shot every year accidentally. There's a lot of stuff that could hurt a kid and it's impossible to protect all of it. The media loves to focus on the school shootings and they are a tragedy, but the threat isn't that great.

    This isn’t about him, it’s about appeasing his mother! Happy wife, happy life!
