The UK’s Daily Mail doesn’t actually “tsk, tsk” in its report of Nitelife Promotions’ realistic shoulder rig shirts. But if you listen closely, you can almost hear them marveling at the idiot, gun-crazed Yanks across the pond. We resemble that remark. But open carry advocates that we are, even we would think twice about donning one of these and strolling down, say, 8th Avenue in New York . . .
Apparently the people who run Nitelife and sell their Open Carry line of casual wear see the potential problem, too. According to the Mail’s story, Open Carry posts this warning on their Lycos-era web site, though we’re damned if we can find it.
Whether it’s there or not, you’ve been warned. Wear what you want. Just be prepared for the very real potential for pearl clutching and, depending on your location, leather clearing.
