Company Provides Gift For Middle Schoolers Headed to High School, Here’s What They Gave Them

Published

Unequal Technologies gave out 40 bulletproof shields as part of a graduation gift for middle school students at St. Cornelius School in Pennsylvania to take with them as they head into high school.

How sad is it that this is actually a really good, thoughtful gift for kids in the 21st century?

Unlike the measures gun grabbers want to take to “provide safety and security” for students, these steps don’t infringe on a person’s Second Amendment rights and still manage to provide some sort of protection for kids who might one day find themselves in a horrific situation.

During a middle school graduation ceremony, all 15 eighth grade students and 25 faculty members at the Catholic school received SafeShields, metal plates designed “to be slipped into a backpack which can then be used as protection against most high-powered handguns and shotguns,” reported FOX 29. It is unclear what constitutes a high-powered handgun.

The president of Unequal, Rob Vito, whose daughter is an eighth grade student at St. Cornelius, spoke at the ceremony. “It’s sad that times have called for such a product to be invented, but we have answered the call,” he told students.

The school already has various safety precautions in place including special bolts on doors and lockdown drills, Barbara Rosini, the St. Cornelius principal, told The New York Times.

What schools need to be doing to ensure our kids are safe in the classroom is provide armed security guards who are highly trained at all major entrances and exits. Some might say such a thing would cost too much money, however, there are plenty of soldiers who have offered to do the job for no pay at all.

Like it or not, we must find a way to provide proper protection for these students that doesn’t infringe on our God-given right to self-defense. It seems the best way to do that is with either armed guards or homeschooling.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
