Miguel Caballero makes fashionable lightweight bulletproof clothing designed for the world’s elite.

A reporter from VBS.tv goes to Bogota Colombia for a tour of their factory, and gets shot with a revolver from about 1 foot away while wearing one of their jackets.

“I shoot all my employees” says Miguel.  It’s an initiation if you are an employee.

Sounds like a pretty good idea to me, although some of it does look a bit bulky.  Any protection at all beats no protection, and that clothing would definitely save some lives.

Very neat stuff.

DES MOINES, Iowa

A Des Moines girl was suspended after school officials said she violated their weapons policy.
Jazmine Martin, 12, brought an empty shotgun shell to school on Monday, a souvenir from a summer vacation to South Dakota. The shell was empty and had the word “blank” written on the front.

Interesting, I looked up “ammunition” in the dictionary for the heck of it and this is the first entry:

The material fired, scattered, dropped, or detonated from any weapon, as bombs or rockets, and esp. shot, shrapnel, bullets, or shells fired by guns
(Reference: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ammunition)

So I suppose by that definition the empty shell would be considered ammunition.  What a dumb policy though!

Hopefully that doesn’t ruin that girls chance at getting into university down the road since its on her “permanent record”.  My guess is it will be listed on the record as something vague too like “Suspended for a weapon” which obviously looks worse then putting “Brought a shotgun hull to show-and-tell”
