That is just wrong...
I have heard the argument before ... instead of buying some $$$ vegan fake leather boots, I rather buy a pair of second-hand real leather boots, everything is fine, no animals need to suffer just for me, they are already dead.
Does not ring true in my ears ... on one hand, a piece of dead animal is equally disgusting, no matter whether it was killed just for me or whether I bought it from the original murderer, and second, if I buy the used one, then the person owning it before will most likely go for a new one. Supply and demand - if I demand it, then the supply will follow.
