A Colorado business promoting open carry is making t-shirts with a gun image that looks so real that they’re being sold with a warning to the buyer.
The “Open Carry” t-shirt that started as a gift for friends around town has now been seen around the globe and is gaining more and more attention. Paul Liebe and John Strand’s commitment to promoting open carry and pushing for gun rights has now hit a new level.
Now that orders are coming in from all over the world, the makers have found it necessary to add the warning that law enforcement officers may react to the shirt in a negative way.
Although the partners admit to making waves with their product, neither of them could have predicted the widespread support. Still, the warning is paramount to their product being safe.
Wearing a t-shirt with a gun image is one way to promote open carry and gun rights, but they could be seen by police as a threat.
As Liebe said:
If somebody says freeze, halt, stop, DO what the officer says. When he sees you turn and sees the shirt he’s gonna realize, ‘Oh, it’s a shirt.’
