If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

Somehow i think you could have bought several of these without showing your carry permit.BUT.... As I was about to leave, there they were. CHL Badges. I guess the guy didn't catch the look of disgust on my face as I was eyeing them. He said something to the effect of, "We can have your name etched on there in a couple of days with your carry permit."
I don't get it.Do people who wear these think they are cops?
The only way I would buy a CCW badge is if they had a 'combo' sale. A big bright badge and a CCW flashing light rack for the top of my car...

Unfortunately there are those who like the CCW badges, although I can't understand why anyone would want one. The shop is just trying to make money. I have actually had customers ask if we sold them in our gunshop and my response has always been, no we don't consider CCW badges to be a good idea. But hey, to each his/her own.

They are a pawn shop trying to make a buck. No doubt there are Mall Ninja types out there who will actually spend money on that stuff.
Badges.... We don't need no Stinkin Badges!!!!

Well, curiosity got the best of me. I had to see what this CCW sash thing was because I never heard of it. I ran across this article that frankly, made me laugh out loud the whole time reading it.

I was going to start a thread about this after I saw an ad for these in a gun magazine. I thought they were pretty stupid.
I'll have to check the archives, since you say it's been beat to death - I haven't seen a thread on it since I joined.
There was a guy at the Gun Show I was at most recently selling them, he was getting lots of nibbles from the newbies streaming out of the CWP class even as the instructor, a long time LEO that I took my class from, was urging them otherwise.
I walked up when he was pitching them to a big crowd. He used the scenario: "What if you're in a convenience store and have to take down an armed suspect? Don't you want the cops to be able to come in and see your badge to know you're a permit holder?"
I asked if it was possible for even a bad guy to buy one of the badges too... and I didn't get a response.

I'm appalled that they would try to sell that crap,now in Texas if they had a big CCW belt buckle that could double as a dinner plate,that would be a great item

Besides the two in the link BuckeyeEric posted, does anyone think they ever sold any of the sashes? I mean the badge idea is bad enough!
I gotta say, some of my best deals on gun purchases have been between these two pawn shops that I know about. One's next to my office and the other is close to my house. Both have a great selection of firearms and pretty good prices too. I don't buy much of anything else there though, just guns and ammo.
