Dec 26 2008Cell Phone Goes PEW PEW PEW PEW

Remember the cell phone gun that Italian police found in a raid on the mafia? Turns out they're mad popular in Europe. And, I've got to tell ya, I'd almost be fooled if it looked like a Blackberry and not a phone from the 90's -- the 1890's (note to self: fact check 19th century cell phone technology). Some guy ranting about the pieces of shit:

Most see airport security as a pain. Some deal better than others. Some feel violated, when you watch this movie, you'll understand why they want your cell phone through the x-ray machine. If you get asked to test your cell phone at the airport, this is the reason. Because cell phone guns have arrived. These phones are not in the U.S. yet, but they are in use overseas. Beneath the digital phone face is a 22 caliber handgun capable of firing four rounds in rapid succession using the standard telephone keypad. European law enforcement officials are stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys. They say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe. Be patient if security asks to look at your cell phone or turn it on to show that it works. They have a good reason! Welcome to our NEW WORLD!!

New world? Would that be a brave new world? And, if so, hook me up with some of that soma! Oh yeah, that's the stuff. Now, who wants to hit up the feelies?

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max's wife gets on his case because he's just a high school teacher that tends bar on the side. Right after she leaves him he tries out for a professional football team and amazingly is picked for the team, and after a successful football career, he went around the country telling people to get cameras stuck up their asses.

You're burning a bit of the midnight oil, huh, GW?

In many places in Europe, you are not allowed to carry a weapon, concealed or otherwise. Thus, responsible people have no way of defending themselves against criminals who the law doesn't effect anyways. England is currently on crusades against guns and knifes, and the only effect has been higher crime.

When people want to defend themselves, they begin to get creative

Damn, that's f***ed up and genius. I'll really be worried when there's an m-16 iphone model floating around because I won't be the guy who has one to fight back with.

Yeah #5 that's what these are meant for.. defense. Not that they are found on mobsters or anything... no, there wouldn't be ANY criminal intent involved...

i'd bet #5's yearly NRA membership that he's part of the NRA



#5: I agree to an extent
#9: You sound a tad ignorant concerning gun facts

If guns were easier for law abiding citizens to own and carry in the United States I'd carry one with me at all times. Why take the risk of being a victim because most gun laws only negatively affect people with legal intentions? If criminals want a gun they can get a gun on the black market, no questions asked. If I want to get a gun I have to file tons of paperwork, undergo background checks, etc, and even then I wouldn't be able to easily get a concealed weapons permit. I can see why people with good intentions would carry a weapon like this if it was the only option available to them but I personally wouldn't ever try to fool anyone by pretending I thought it was a cell phone because it looks like a Fischer Price toy

9 sounds completely ignorant.

Guess not so now i want to say LAST

Guess not so now i want to say LAST
