CNN is the hilarious gift that just keeps giving us joke after joke. They’d be funny, too, if they weren’t so sad, of course.
On Saturday, CNN’s Senior Law Enforcement Analyst (because they obviously know so much about women’s fashion and concealed carry options) Tom Fuentes made a bold statement, declaring female teachers and faculty can’t possibly carry concealed in schools due to their fashion choices…
“A lot of these schools—Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty, from principal to teachers,” Fuentes stated. “For a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day?”
“You can’t put it in your desk drawer; somebody might steal it, and you can’t get to it. You’re not going to have it in a safe in the principal’s office; you can’t get to it.”
“If you wear a dress, if you wear a skirt, are you going to have to wear a jacket every day with a belt and a holster, the way a detective on duty would do?” Fuentes asked rhetorically. “It’s not a real practical solution for a variety of reasons.”
It’s so cute when CNN tries to act like they know what they’re talking about, isn’t it? But in all seriousness, there isn’t an outfit you could put in front of me that I couldn’t give you an option for carrying on your person in.
Want to wear a dress? Here’s my favorite thigh holster from UnderTech UnderCover that allows your skirt to glide right over it without revealing your firearm:
Want to wear a pencil skirt with a dress shirt? Here’s a CanCanConcealment Micro Hip Hugger Holster that will conceal your firearm nicely under separates:
Want to wear a skirt with a button-down shirt and a blazer but don’t feel like carrying below the waist? Here’s my favorite UnderTech UnderCover concealment tank that allows you to easily carry under either arm:
Get the picture?
To assert that women are unable to carry for any reason, much less their wardrobe choices, is irresponsible and ignorant.
What’s this guy going to tell women next, we can’t work out when we have our periods? Maybe we can’t wear shoes when we’re pregnant! How do we ride motorcycles with long hair?! Oh my gosh, I had NO idea there were still things I couldn’t do because I’m a GIRL!!
Take a seat, CNN – we got this.
