If you're in the wrong neighborhood, the wrong country (try running around in South Africa or North Korea with that), or in a place where armed cops don't expect to see someone walking around with a gun hanging off of them...

RIP

Your 'anti-gun crowd', will not be buying this shirt. Your pro-gun crowd WILL buy this shirt.
But you said this:

Anybody who is hugely pro-gun would probably buy and wear this out as a 'look at me! I support gun rights' shirt.
I'm pro Second Amendment rights (so I guess that makes me "pro gun") and I think the shirt is very stupid. I can't imagine anyone I know (in the "pro gun" crowd) who would buy or wear this shirt.

I agree. It's a tacky fashion statement for people wanting attention when out and about.

The guy here who designed that here was brilliant. A small store, now getting worldwide attention. He can't keep up with the orders. Brilliant marketing!

For sale: A gun shirt so realistic that it comes with a warning - CBS News


The link is to a cbs news story about a T shirt that has a very realistic picture of a gun in a holster on it. The shirt even comes with a warning that Police may think this is a real gun so if stopped follow their directions, do not reach for the gun. The makers of the shirt are trying to get the word out about concealed carry..... I'm all for it but not like this.

Is this smart? or is this an accident waiting to happen?
This is the stupid!
