The key reply is that clothing which some find offensive is different from firearms that others — justifiably — find frightening. That is: pants aren’t guns, and being gay doesn’t kill people. Not sure if CDC counts how many Americans die by strange-looking pants each year, but if they do, chances are the number will be a lot less than 30,000 (the number shot to death every year in this country).
Well, if Americans are dying by strange fashion practices, perhaps Robb Allen has the right idea. (hint: it's in the comments)
h/t to Joe for pointing out the bigots quote
