Re: “The $65 pants that promise to hid a concealed weapon” (TNT, 4-29).

I hope I am not the only one appalled by the demand for clothing created specifically to conceal weapons.

I am not comforted by the idea that my “maximum uncertainty” must now include not only the stereotypical dark hoodie and baggie pants, but “a button-down and khakis.”
In addition, I’m pretty sure “fashion-aware gun owner” is an oxymoron.

To misquote the NRA: Guns don’t kill people; people fashionably dressed to conceal weapons, kill people.
