NRA Selling Concealed Carry Hoodie


I have decided to join the hoodie craze.

The National Rifle Association has a few products labeled new “on its website, among them: a book entitled The Blue Book of Gun Values, a holster for women to wear on a bra called The Flashbang and a water bottle. And then there’s a product that has many people infuriated: a hoodie that allows you to conceal your favorite licensed pistol.

The product description reads:

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.

The product has been called ridiculous and scary. Nick Ramsay posted on “For this, I have no words.”

But it seems like a worthwhile product to me. It costs only $64.95. That is a small price to pay for protection.

I think it would be perfect for those cool Florida nights — especially if you are involved in a neighborhood watch program and spend a great deal of time outside. According to the product description, it is comfortable and warm:

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.

You never know what kind of hoodlum you’ll encounter in today’s violent world. Walk with confidence.
