Every generation brings a new face to all areas of interest that people could have. From comic books to film, things change as the torch is passed down to people with new ideas and innovations. The same goes with guns and gun-related interests. The torch is being passed down to a new era of conservatives who hold their right to bear arms very near to heart. The field of firearm fashion is no different and is seeing huge changes.
The blunt, prideful nature of gun t-shirts from yore are fading away. These older generation of gun activists treated their tees like picket signs at a rally. Huge, bold script that told people to “keep their hands and laws off my gun.” These bold statements have a place, but the newest innovators want cool clothes and not just a declaration of personal interests on their chest.
Guns are a very hotbed topic of discussion, especially when you cross over the political barriers. Social groups are much more likely to be comprised of many different political views than they were in the past. People are generally more tolerant of each other’s views amongst these younger people. That doesn’t exactly fit with the segregated battle lines of previous years and the aggressive tees from a generation before.
These types of clothing are far too brash and defiant for many of the younger gun lovers today. It is possible to wear a well-designed, gun tee without looking like a gangster. While these younger folks are definitely from conservative stock, that doesn’t mean they want to dress like a middle-aged Republican.
The style behind these shirts is reminiscent of other popular brands seen amongst younger circles. Huge print, large designs, and an undeniable sense of “cool” has been combined with an overall dedication to the theme of gun ownership and 2nd Amendment Rights. It would be safe to say that the safety is off, and this new fashion is loaded and ready for action.
