Cannon Young came to my office regarding proposal to place bullet-proof glass in windows of offices of First Presidency. Glass of this size would cost $15 per square foot, also would require new frames. Total cost would be between $3,500 and $4,000 for entire job for 1 1/8' glass, which would stop .45 caliber steel sleeve bullet.
