PHOENIX -- The growing line of ‘gun wear' has gun- violence groups up in arms. There are chinos that hide your gun, elite discreet twill jackets that will hide your revolver and an entire ‘concealed carry' line of clothing.

"The notion that carrying a concealed gun can afford the carrier protection, in my view, is absurd," said Elliott Feinman, who heads the National Gun Victims Action Council, based in Chicago.

"The element of surprise always defeats the gun carrier."

He said, however, that he doesn't believe the attire for the fashion-savvy gun owner will be coming off of the shelves any time soon.

"These are tragedies that are waiting to happen," Feinman said. "I'm sure they'll come out with business suits now that will conceal weapons. And I'm sure they'll go off at inappropriate times."

Feinman is especially concerned about the ‘concealed carry' line of clothing in Arizona because the state no longer requires a permit to carry concealed firearms.

"It's clear that the more guns that are being carried, the more people are going to get shot," he said.
