The bulletproof backpack plates were also handed out to 25 faculty members at the school.

Vito said during the assembly that handguns and shotguns are "useless against a product like this" and demonstrated how it could be used to stop bullets.

The outgoing 8th grade class of St. Cornelius Catholic School, Pennsylvania, received ballistic shields for their backpacks as their graduation gift Monday.

Caldwell told USA TODAY that Unequal's ballistic shield is created to be "kid friendly" - the shield can be slipped into a backpack to fortify it against gunfire. The company's CEO, Robert Vito, has a daughter who attends the school.

Unequal Technologies, a sportswear company based in a nearby Philadelphia suburb, donated the 10-by-12-inch plates to each of the students as they prepared to break before starting high school.

In the United States, about one school shooting in which someone was hurt or killed has unfolded every week this year, on average, a CNN review found.

"You hear about these school shootings nearly weekly, and I can't believe that's where we are in our nation today, but that's the fact", one great-grandparent who was at the graduation event told Fox 29.

This past February, seventeen students were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - prompting hundreds of school walkouts across the country and national debates over U.S. gun laws.

Barbara Rosini, the principal, who was originally contacted Vito about the SafeShields, said: "I worry about our kids".

Parents of the students expressed the same sentiments, stating the backpack unfortunately is a new necessity.

Visitors are asked for driver's licenses before entering, and their information is entered in a database and searched against criminal records, Fox 29 reported.

"Honestly, it is probably a sad statement that it sounds as though we are going to start equipping students as we do law enforcement officers, I would prefer to see money in areas with better results", he said.

Anti-gun activist David Hogg saw it as further proof that the USA needs more restrictive gun laws. "I hope you [the students] keep them with you in high school".
