eCommerce Company Skirts Politics by Creating Common-sense Device to Fight Back Against the Fear of Mass Shootings.
Practical Protection, a Washington-based corporation has invented an innovative, immediate invention to defend against the threat of mass Shootings. The product, called the CoverMe-Seat, is a portable self-supported stadium-style that can be transformed into a bulletproof vest. All in all, the conversion takes less than five seconds. The product, CoverMe-Seat, secures the user’s torso from the highest caliber handgun ammo and with the addition of a rear plate it can stop ammunition fired from an AR-15-style weapon, which enables it to be more protective than bulletproof backpacks, jackets and even most vests.
“Nobody wants to have to consider staying safe in a mass-shooting scenario,” said Practical Protection’s Founder, Aaron Ansel. “Our elected officials need to figure out a common-sense regulatory approach, which we support, but before that happens, we wanted a viable solution, so we came up with our own.”
CoverMe-Seat overcomes the shortcomings of backpacks with bulletproof inserts because it protects the front and back of the user. In addition, with the back plate, you are protected against AR-15 fire, which is something that almost no bulletproof product can do, at least not practically. CoveMe-Seat weighs only about five pounds, or about eleven pounds with the plate.
Andrew Enke, Chief Engineer, has years of experience in the medical device industry. “I was careful to design the CoverMe-Seat to be both effective and simple. We started with the assumption that nobody decides they are going to decide to wear a bullet proof vest every time they go outside. With the CoverMe-Seat, we sought to surmount the assumption that bulletproof protection requires you to compromise some other aspect of your life.”
