A US based company is working on guns that look like smartphones — They may be easy to carry but they may also create a lot of confusion for the cops

While policymakers in the United States are confused over mass shootings and considering restrictions on guns there is a company developing “Smart Gun” which looks like an iPhone or any other smartphone.

The Ideal Conceal is developing a concealed carry gun which will be available for public later this year — It looks like a smartphone but in reality, it’s a smart gun which will surely be confusing for the cops and when there is a confusion there is killing. The best example of the shooting case is 12-year-old boy Tamir Rice who was shot dead by the police for carrying a toy gun. But the Ideal Conceal thinks otherwise and hails its 380-caliber derringer, with two bullets loaded into two barrels as some kind of a saviour.

“Smartphones are EVERYWHERE, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today’s environment. In its locked position, it will be virtually undetectable because it hides in plain sight,” according to the company’s website.

Once available the price for this gun will be $395. The developer behind this smart gun is Kirk Kjellberg who claims to have received 2,500 emails from customers ready to the piece. Kjellberg told CNN he understands how hard it is for people to carry a concealed gun without people making a fuss about it.

“This little kid says, ‘Mommy, Mommy, that man’s got a gun,’ so the whole restaurant looks at you like you’re about to shoot the place up. I thought to myself there’s got to be another way to be able to carry without bothering other people.”
