Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo promoted bulletproof backpacks and clothing, but not gun control, notes Media Matters.
Carolina Ballesteros Casas, of MC Armor, said the clothing and accessories are specifically for U.S. children (because the U.S. has so much gun violence):
We have different categories of lines of product. We have the gold collection, black collection, is fashion with ballistics, and we have the backpacks for kids…
In the U.S., sadly, there’s the guns, everybody can have a gun. So, here, kids need to be protected, and we have the fact that there is some school issues, so we need to bring this to the United States.
Bartiromo swooned over a bullet-resistant jacket:
It’s heavier, but this looks like a very fashionable jacket.
This is the black collection. We wear it with Miguel Caballero’s brand, we wear it — 13 presidents in Latin America, we have prime ministers wearing this. So it’s very light weight. You can see it’s wearable. It’s fashionable, but wearable, but protection.
