CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Texas inventor Mike Taylor says he knows what could keep kids and teachers safe from school shootings.
He come up with a bullet proof shield. It weighs 14 pounds and Taylor says it's portable enough for quick action.
"Our theory is to have the shield and attach hornet spray on one side of the shield to where the teachers in groups of three's can attack the shooter with the shield and spray the shooter in the face with the hornet spray," said Taylor.
Many in Southwest Florida aren't buying it.
Michele asking on the Fox Four Facebook page, "What is this little thing going to do for a classroom of 18+ students? He thinks a gunman is just going to shoot at a bullet proof shield?"
Jason suggested something else posting , "Basic things like checkpoints for those coming into a school parking lot and restricting access work wonders."
Chris sees the up side and said, "Maybe if it is the desk top and could be flipped up...but something more than hornet spray would be needed."
The board costs 275 dollars a piece. He says he would sell them to schools at cost.
