US Senator Charles Schumer is calling for the device to be banned
US Senator Charles Schumer is calling for a gun designed to look like a smartphone to be banned. The .380 calibre gun could be in shops in the US from as early as this summer.
The device's manufacturer, Ideal Conceal, advertise the device with the following line: "Smartphones are EVERYWHERE, so your new pistol will easily blend in with today's environment."
The list price is $395 and the company describes the gun as having "high velocity and increased accuracy".
