The Worst Helping of Irony at the Worst Possible Time
So, whilst performing a routine stumble upon this glorious morning I came upon an interesting item that just recently went on sale. Courtesy from those gypsies at the National Rifle Association. Get your checkbooks out and pens ready!
With that infamous hoodie Trayvon last wore plastered in everyone’s mind, the NRA decided it would be a great PR moment to advertise “new” hooded sweatshirts with a built in concealment pocket for that brand new Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm you’ve been eyeing. Come on be honest. Zimmerman’s favorite weapon of choice as well. This product is described as follows:
We want concealed carry to fit around your lifestyle – not the other way around. That’s why we developed the NRAstore™ exclusive Concealed Carry Hooded Sweatshirt. It’s the only garment of its kind we know of! Made from a pre-shrunk, heavyweight 50% cotton / 50% polyester blend, we’ve taken a standard 9 oz. fleece sweatshirt design and added a full-body polyester lining for added warmth, durability, wind resistance and weight distribution. Inside the sweatshirt you’ll find left and right concealment pockets. The included Velcro®-backed holster and double mag pouch can be repositioned inside the pockets for optimum draw. Ideal for carrying your favorite compact to mid-size pistol, the NRA Concealed Carry Hooded Sweatshirt gives you an extra tactical edge, because its unstructured, casual design appears incapable of concealing a heavy firearm – but it does so with ease! Includes drawstring hood, cotton/spandex ribbed cuffs and waistband, two front pouch pockets and a discreet black zipper. Includes one Velcro® holster and one Velcro® mag pouch.
Ok, I would like to think that I’m not the only one feeling this might be in slightly bad taste? Hmm, given the circumstances. Would like to assume that we all know it probably doesn’t take dear ol’ chap, Sherlock “f@#$%&* Holmes to decipher that one. A big wag of the finger (middle finger) to you NRA. Jesus tap dancing Christ at least wait a few months! NRA= Epic fail.
