    More Idiocy From Gun Nuts - Gun That Looks Like Smartphone

    http://money.cnn.com/2016/03/21/news...conceal-carry/

    "Junior, answer the phone please."

    "He had a smartphone. It could have been a gun."

    Not real quotes.

    This is beyond a doubt the stupidest product I have ever heard of.

    In the first place, it's a shitty gun; short-bareled, hard to hold, hard to aim, only two shots, no sights.

    In the second place, folded up it's not immediately obvious that it IS a gun, which means it's far more likely to be picked up and mishandled by other (e.g. children, friends, random person who finds it in the street when it falls out of your pocket) who might otherwise be weary and/or cautious around firearms. More importantly, it's designed to resemble the one thing in the universe that NOBODY ever assumes is dangerous.

    I mean, it's like something out of fucking Saturday Night Live. This is the gun invented by the same genius who developed the anti-mugger purse: looks like a purse, but is actually a beartrap.

    Agreed. The guy had a moment of clarity and saw a "great" idea. Other people would then have immediately noted the flaws with this "great" idea and discarded it. This guy just stopped thinking.

    A few years ago, small guns disguised as cell phones started showing up at airports. A number got confiscated when airport security personal learned what to look for.

    Add another strike to the "bad idea" category: the gun is useless for self defense, EXTREMELY accident prone, and is probably only really useful in a crime.
