Tom Fuentes, CNN’s Senior Law Enforcement Analysis thinks female teachers can’t carry guns because they wear a lot of skirts and dresses. Yes, you read that right.
Darn those skits and dresses!! There’s just nowhere to hide a gun. WRONG.
What Mr. Fuentes doesn’t know is there are entire clothing lines dedicated to female conceal carry and they do a pretty good job of hiding your weapon on your person. There are even some amazing workout clothes, which fit much tighter than skirts and dresses, that allow you to discretely conceal carry.
The Well Armed Woman is full of amazing resources for ladies who carry and not only do they connect ladies to gear and purses, but they have a wealth of knowledge for women who are thinking about buying a gun but don’t know which type of firearm they should go with.
Alexo Athletica is a newer company that focuses on athletic apparel. Their mission is to “never back down from supporting a woman’s right to choose how she defends herself while striving to bring the best in fashionable, functional active carry-wear to the market.” Their workout pants have multiple pockets that fit pistols, magazines, smart phones, knives, keys and/or all of the above.
Style Me Tactical is an entire fashion blog dedicated to “blend[ing] women’s fashion and self-reliance. Style Me Tactical is a resource and community for women to become inspired, informed, and encouraged to live a lifestyle where being prepared and having the ability to defend oneself can coexist with a woman’s desire to be fashionable.”
There are even special conceal carry bras!
And if that’s not enough, then there’s always the good old fashioned thigh holster, which conceals nicely under a loose fitting skirt or dress.
So there you have it Mr. Fuentes, it looks like there are plenty of options for teachers (or any woman for that matter) who want to conceal carry AND wear a dress/skirt.
It was pretty sexist of you to suggest otherwise.
