Local business owner creates bulletproof backpacks


In the wake of the Florida shooting, a local business owner has developed a bulletproof backpack for parents who want their kids to have extra protection, in case of an emergency. 

Christopher Cook, owner of EP Armory, says he came up with the idea after talking with family and friends.

The father of five says each backpack has an armor plate sewn into it that weighs less than a pound.

EP Armory is located at 7400 District Boulevard in Southwest Bakersfield.
