Police Warn About Dangers of Gun-Shaped Phone Case

Law enforcement officers are concerned about a new phone case for the iPhone that shows the grip and trigger of a handgun.

Police and anti-gun advocates are outraged with a new phone case for the iPhone that is shaped like a handgun.

The concern is that the phone case might be mistaken for an actual gun by police, resulting in a potentially deadly outcome.

According to the New York Daily News:

Concerned critics demanded the gun-grip cases be banned from being sold on the Internet and stores, saying they can easily be mistaken for a real firearm.

… Making matters worse is that the gun-handle cases — which can be purchased online or from street vendors throughout the city — also come with an app that puts a picture of a gun barrel on the iPhone’s screen.

“This is the stupidest, most dangerous thing I’ve ever seen,” a former cop, who spoke anonymously, told the New York Daily News.

    painting the shell neon simply won’t cut it the same way air gun replicas have neon barrel paint to offset the black paint.
