According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry will account for a total economic impact of more than $31.8 Billion, this year alone.
With the threat of a barrage of new gun control legislation on the horizon, it comes as little surprise to see gun and accessory sales shoot through the roof, but now mainstream clothiers are pushing the envelope more than they ever have in the past. Sex and guns have always been a hot commodity for the Hollywood movie industry, but now as side arms are poised to become even more visible in America, due to a bolder gun lobby, the clothing industry is moving in for the kill. Tight jeans, made in America, along with tank tops showing naked arms and strong shoulders are what's in now. Throw in a camouflage thong and GLOCK 26 Gen4, customizable exclusively for a woman's grip, and she's both safe and sexy for a night on the town.
Men have always had a fascination with sexy women armed to the hilt, and the clothing industry is well aware of this untapped market. How cool is it to see an ultra-fit, half naked women gripping the barrel of a selective-fire, gas operated AK-47 assault rifle? Answer, very cool, and the fashion industry is stepping up to satisfy America’s appetite.
According to Feminist Truths on Facebook, “at least 51% of the human population is being subjected to inequality, injustice and inhumane treatment. How can women stand back and do nothing when their fellow women are being oppressed and ignored by the powers that be?" "If women took up arms to defend their rights and freedom, the men in power would ban assault rifles so quickly your panties would fall off!" states Suzanne MacNevin.
Woolrich has recently unveiled their new "Concealed Carry Edition”, for both men and women. The clothing is both durable, comfortable, but designed exclusively to make living with a gun ergonomically compatible, on a full-time basis. “It has a comfort waist with elastic side panels, and three-ply, dual-chamber pocket bags”, describes Woolrich. But wait, that’s not all, the stylish garment also comes with a reinforced crotch, and two knife openings, totally machine washable.
In the weeks and month ahead, as the debate over the right to bear arms heats up, the economic drivers associated with the demand for fashionable gun apparel will slowly turn the trigger-lock off; and there will be an even stronger force in Washington, urging the wayward congress to stay away from the subject of gun control. Today the stakes are huge and the subject of gun control goes far beyond the public’s right to own guns. It's the huge apparel and accessory industry now entering the floor for debate.
