Thanks to a miracle material called Dyneema, the board can repel shots from handguns and shotguns, allowing teachers precious time in case of an attack.
Gun advocates say the boards might be one step in a broader school protection strategy. Teachers now have a new line of protection to shield their class from a shooter.
A Maryland armor manufacturer has developed bullet proof white boards that teachers can use while conducting class lessons and during an emergency.
The boards are made of a state-of-the-art material called Dyneema, and can repel gun shots from handguns and shotguns the types of weapons most commonly used in school shootings, said George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire, which created the boards.

“White boards” ?????? I want equal consideration.
When my wife was studying to be an elementary school teacher 25 years ago, she was repimanded for using the non-PC term “Black board”. “You may call it a chalk board but not a ‘black board’ “, she was advised.
These people are completely deranged.
I suppose you thought SDI was dumb too.
I am happy to be 41, I must say. At least I made it over the hill and had the blessing of spending my younger years in a free country.
As I age I feel I don’t have as much to lose as if I was twenty...or one...or zero like my nephews. I wonder what their lives are going to hold for them.
Sadly what I have learned of western societies is that they seem to produce some of the very worst, most dishonest, despicable, lazy, self entitled, worthless people that I have ever seen.
Surely this does not apply to everyone, but it applies to enough to have made the difference, and that is very sad. I do not have faith in humanity any longer.
I can get worse.
Liberals would likely go so far as to mandate in the building code that schools must have bullet-proof panic rooms that can hold each classroom full of students.
The stupidity of these people is simply staggering.
I’d buy one.
With the added bonus that the lessons about condom placement and anal sex won't have to laboriously redrawn after the attack.
Is that picture real?
That is about the dumbest thing I’ve seen a lefty come up with yet. And, that’s saying a lot.
I wonder if what they are saying about this over at the DUmp? That’s gotta make a great DUmmy Funnies.
But the media always says it's assault rifles. So evidently these "bullet proof" white boards won't repel anything in calibers .223 or greater?
If you are attempting to develop a correlation between a sophisticated space-based, multi-billion dollar, national (if not hemispheric) defense system (which, by the way I think is a brilliant concept) to a "suit of armor" made of Kevlar whiteboard for personal protection -- which it appears from your comment that you are -- I think you need a break from all this hysteria, my friend.
Cheers! ... and again I respond, "Huh?!"
What a great idea! Nice body armor for the bad guys to wear, too!
Absolutely. The best security plan is one that consists of several layers.
Yes, the picture is from the original article. How can anyone seriously suggest such an idiotic idea?
How about a moat with alligators and sharks. And really big snakes. With laser beams!
But I thought the meme was assault rifles being used everywhere! And an assault rifle will plow through that rather easily.
Use their own memes against them.
I got to thinking about it and really, it’s a brilliant idea. I can see all these school districts thinking, “we gotta do something” and ordering thousands of these. 100’s of thousands of these maybe.
So, I think I’m gonna buy stock in this company. And then dump it right before all these dumbasses realize they have been taken.
Why not just have robotic sentries armed with sticky foam guns?
You can get a bunch for next to nothing from the set of Dr. Who.
And they also can unplug toilets as well.
