Company develops guns that looks just like a smartphone. What could possibly go wrong?

Courtesy of Phys Org:  

Americans will soon be able to buy a smartphone-shaped gun that can hold two bullets and easily slip into a pocket. 

The Minnesota-based company Ideal Conceal says it will sell the new weapon from mid-2016. 

"Ingeniously designed to resemble a smartphone, yet with one click of the safety it opens and is ready to fire," the company says on its website. 

"Smartphones are everywhere, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today's environment," it adds. "In its locked position it will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight." 

The gun is a double-barrelled .380 caliber folding pistol that will sell for $395, the company says. 

At this point one has to wonder if these gun manufacturers are TRYING to kill our children.

It is bad enough that there are all of these guns lying around that look like guns, now we are going to have guns lying around that look like cell phones.  

Not only that but exactly how do we keep these off of airplanes and out of places like schools, US Capitols, and other gun free zones?

 I see no practical reason for this product to exist, and it clearly demonstrates a clear and present danger to the American people.

    Not to be confused with "smart gun" technology that make guns safer to use. What a backwards upside down idiocratic world the USA has become!

    “I don’t exactly understand this, and maybe there will be somebody in the audience who explains it to me,” Obama told CNN. “Back in 1997, the CEO of Colt said, you know, we can design or are starting to develop guns where you can only use it if you’ve got a chip. You know, you wear a band or a bracelet, and that then protects your 2-year-old or 3-year-old from picking up the gun and using it. And a boycott was called against them, and—and they had to back off of developing that technology.”

    By conflating smart gun tech outright bans, the NRA has mobilized its supporters to be critical of smart gun technology—even though it could be safer for gun owners, and lucrative for gun retailers.

      fear that smart guns would soon be the only guns people were allowed to buy, infringing on individual’s rights bear arms of their choosing. Those fears were fueled by a decade-old New Jersey mandate in 2002 that promised to phase out — and ban — traditional gun ownership within three years of smart guns hitting the market.

    Once the genie is out of the bottle, you can't put it back. It's true on so many fronts, and there's not a lot we can do about it. Just like the atom bomb, we now have to figure out how to live with it.

    I saw the guy who originally developed it on my morning news today and, yep, he's just as smug as you would expect him to be.

    What if you shoot yourself calling a cab after a night of too much fun?

    Next will we see smart phone manufacturers creating smartphones to look like something else so they aren't mistaken for a gun? Oh let's make everyone, especially cops, even more paranoid.

    Maybe they will be available before the GOOP convention? And over-ride the no guns policy? You know those rednecks will be the first ones to buy such a bad idea.

      So when we see Sarah and Bristol with phones in each hand, one of them will be a gun? That should be safe around all those children.

      Sarah and Bristol will be the first on their block to be packing that thing.

      We know who is the happiest Palin!

      Alaska Concealed Handgun
      Alaska's laws do not prohibit anyone 21 or older who may legally possess a firearm from carrying it concealed. A special permit is not required.

  6. Next up: gun that looks like a lollipop.

    1. I would think it would be more appropriate to develop the Dildo Gun. Not for use but as a statement of exactly what a gun represents.

    Riiiiing......It's for you......bang!

    Great. Now cops have another reason to shoot first, ask later. After all, they don't know if someone is reaching for their phone or if they are reaching for their gun.

    Isn't there some kind of authority that could simply OUTLAW this sh*t???

    it would make sense for a narcissist to project onto others as a means of deflecting from their own deficiencies. Trump’s statements—like that gun-free zones are “target practice for sickos and the mentally ill”

    That's a mind-blowing invention.

    At least a smartphone gun is more practical than J.W. "Wiggly" Wiggin's infamous Lady Gun, regrettably patented in 1890 and displayed at the Chicago's 1893 Columbian Exposition. Tho commercially popular at first, the weapon - designed to be worn and fired internally and marketed to "Socially Active Women who need just a Little More Protection", suffered from confusing installation and usage instructions. Wilson withdrew the product from the market as the list of unfortunate women deploying the gun backwards grew at an alarming rate. An invertabrate inventor, Wilson went on to patent the steam powered genital cleanser, the spring-loaded baby ejector chair and the recreational explosive golf ball before being killed by an angry mob in March 4,1904, an event still celebrated in Hoover, Alabama as Wiggly Wiggins Day.

    Why would anyone, who wants to sport a gun everywhere, want to camouflage it as a phone? This is one of the worst possible "inventions" of the 21st century.

  12. Kirk Kjellberg of Monticello, MN owns this referenced trailer park and is a slum lord. He is the smug inventor of said phone gun.
    So if necessity is the mother of invention....
    Well, he just figured out a way to keep his dissidents be it the City Council or renters, very wary.
    Disturbing and smug asshole on KARE TV interview.

    Nothing good could come of this unless it would be the pivotal turning point for needed regulation of firearms and ammo.

    Cool gun.

    The genius that spent time creating this pos was on television this morning, boy does he come across as a smart man, except he had the shoe with the "r" on it on his left foot.
    Brilliant idea. Reminds me of a man who had his initials tattooed over his heart, they happened to be "DNR", and when his heart stopped, no one tried to start it up again, which got his cardiologist and the hospital a frivolous lawsuit.
    If your initials are DNR, don't have them tattooed on your chest over your heart.

  16. Because deer will be fooled by hunters that appear to be talking on their phone?

    Let's get real. These are designed for one thing only. To kill people. And to do it in such a deceptive way, in venues that do not allow guns.

    These are designed for one thing. The murder of people.

    Although I'm sure they will not be very effective at that purpose. They won't hold much ammo, won't be very accurate and I am hoping will blow up maiming the hands of all those that use them.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
