Start-up Company Avoids Politics by Manufacturing Innovative Answer to Protect Against Gun Violence in the United states.
A small Seattle company has developed an imaginitive, revolutionary device to fight back against the scourge of school shootings. The product, called the CoverMe-Seat, is a portable, lightweight stadium-style that converts into a bulletproof vest. In all, converting from seat to vest takes only a few seconds. The seat protects the wearer’s front and back from powerful handgun rounds and with the addition of a rear plate it can stop ammo shot from the commonly-used AR-15, which enables it to be superior to standard vests, jackets and packpacks.
“No-one wants to think about keeping themselves and their loved ones safe when there’s gunfire,” said Aaron Ansel, a product safety attorney and the Founder of Practical Protection. “Our elected officials need to pass common-sense firearm laws, which we fully support, but until that occurs, this is an effective, timely solution that doesn’t require any laws to start using.”
The portable seat overcomes the shortcomings of bulletproof backpacks because it covers the front and back of the person wearing it. Furthermore, with the back plate, your rear is shielded against high-powered rifle bullets, which none of the competition can offer. The portable seat weighs only about five pounds, less than a gallon of milk.
One of the Co-Founders, Andrew Enke is an engineer who spent most of his career creating highly-precise medical implants. “I engineered the CoverMe-Seat to be as simple as it is effective. We started with the assumption that no-one is going to want to wear a bullet proof jacket whenever they go to work or school. With the CoverMe-Seat, we sought to overcome the assumption that bulletproof protection requires you to compromise some other aspect of your life.”
