"I never thought I'd need this", graduating eighth grader Jacob Nicosia told Fox29.
In what can be construed as a sad statement today, the entire graduating class at St. Cornelius Middle School in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, received special bulletproof backpack plates as graduation presents, as The Hill reported.
However, Fox 29 says that many students seemed baffled by the fact that this was the gift they were getting to welcome them to high school.
The students at St. Cornelius Catholic School in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, were given 10-inch by 12-inch ballistic shields to place in their backpacks. "They'll stop the most powerful handguns in the world-.44 Magnums, .357 Sigs", he said.
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 United States gun laws.
"I think (a bulletproof backpack) creates a false sense of security for the student and the school itself", Curtis Lavarello, the executive director of the School Safety Advocacy Council, told the New York Times.
Principal Barbara Rosini said that she'll do whatever she has to in order to keep the children at her school safe. "We will do whatever is in our power to secure our campuses so that you don't have to worry about your children when they are in school".
Others, like National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen García, questioned the use of such devices when, instead, people should be talking about how to prevent shootings altogether.

They appeared "unsure just what to make of their "welcome to high school" gifts", said FOX 29's Bruce Gordon.
