CEO unveils bulletproof whiteboards that could shield kids
Question of the Day
When Mr Tunis looked at his son and saw the fear in his eyes, his engineering brain took over, The Blaze reports.
“We can fix this,” he said. “We have to do something.”
Mr Tunis‘ company manufactures high-tech gear for America’s military. “The passion of our company is inventing life-saving things,” he told The Blaze.
Less than a month after the Newtown shooting and a new invention was born: bulletproof dry erase boards for teachers.
The boards look and work like normal whiteboards, but can shield heavy gunfire from even a close range. Mr Tunis predicts the public’s reception of the boards will be strong. The Maryland-based company has already sold 90 boards to a local school.
“Imagine 90 teachers walking with a wall of bulletproof boards,” Tunis told The Blaze. “If you’re a bad guy, your plan just got changed.”
