Sounds like someone is hyper sensitive to the recent spat of gun violence to the point that the mere mention of the name of a gun sends them into fits of rage. The problem with that point of view is that if you google the phrase "my uzi weighs a ton" you get 2 possibilities on the first page:
1) One of my Favorite DE/JDN concoctions OR
2) The old Public Enemy Song (ok.... maybe thats the vulgarity reference they meant - since it IS an attack on the ears :P )
I say get the hat and be happy.
I am also partial to the Baitfish for my smoke breaks at work, so I MAY be biased a little.
