Now that 37 states allow concealed-carry permits, many gun owners face a serious dilemma: How to carry their weapons without sacrificing their fashion sense? Fortunately, clothing makers have blessed us with "concealed-carry clothing," which a very excited Stephen Colbert discussed last night. "Finally: The handgun meets the Tim Gunn," he said. "Make it work—or else."

With Woolrich's concealed pockets and invisible zippers, "no one will know if that's a gun in your pocket unless you're unhappy to see them," Colbert pointed out. Of course, the best part of all this is that the clothing creates "maximum uncertainty." "At last, we can stop being scared of people wearing hoodies, and start being scared of people wearing button-downs and khakis," Colbert said. "Finally, we'll all be safe, as long as nobody makes any sudden moves." (More Stephen Colbert stories.)
