A Gun Disguised As A Smartphone? This Won't End Well

Yes, this is really a thing.
A Gun Disguised As A Smartphone? This Won't End Well

This is just not going to end well on so many levels. A Minnesota company is making a gun that looks like a smartphone. That's the unfolded version above. Here's what it looks like when it's folded up:

NY Daily News:

The Ideal Conceal pistol, which is slated to go on sale for $395 later this year, allows its owner to “carry with confidence, conceal in style,” the Minnesota startup’s website reads. The product could be seen on the site with an unfolding handle revealing a trigger and muzzles for the bullets where earphones would usually plug in.

Ideal Conceal CEO Kirk Kjellberg told the Daily News the lightweight invention aids gun owners hoping to avoid a Second Amendment debate.

"Part of what this allows people to do is carry a weapon without engaging in that conversation," Kjellberg said. "This way, you don't have to have a .38 or .44 strapped to your waist, you can carry it in your front pocket."

The invention is already causing controversy. Bill Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, told CNN Money the invention could make police officers’ jobs more difficult.

Ya think? Not just police officers, either. How about those moms who think having this handy-dandy little gun in their bag won't confuse Junior who just wanted to play a game on Mommy's smartphone while they were riding in the car?

It's an ammosexual's dream, but it's so sick I can hardly imagine the consequences.
