    Minn. school district gets bulletproof whiteboards

    A Minnesota school district where two students were killed in a 2003 shooting unveiled a new device Tuesday aimed at adding a last-ditch layer of safety for teachers and students: bulletproof whiteboards.

    What a pointless waste of money, they act like these things are going to be as effective as a real ballistic shield, yea right...

    And for the record, yes, I would be willing to hold a soundly made (Entry One, Body Bunker etc.) ballistic shield and be shot in it by most types of common firearms.

    More feel-good ineffectiveness with a hefty price tag attached.

    I don't have a problem with it IF it isn't their only solution. If there's an incident and the bullets are flying I can see it being a line of defense until the situation is under control.
