Police, Officials Outraged over ‘Gun Case’ for iPhone

FOX 13 News

The “Gun Grip Case” for the iPhone is causing quite a stir in the Big Apple.

The New York Police Department are urging citizens not to by the cover which “transforms your iPhone 5 into a handgun,” according to the distributor of the product, Japantrendshop.com.

“I would NOT suggest purchasing this cell phone case, which was designed to look like a firearm. #BeSmart #BeSafe,” reads a tweet from the 112th precinct in Queens.

The case comes in black, white or pink and allows one to, again, according to the website who sells it, “play games of Russian Roulette at parties!”

The website adds, “Don’t worry, you can’t actually shoot anyone!”

    Looks like a stupid idea to me. About as stupid as saying the case “transforms your iPhone 5 into a handgun,”

    No surprise NY would be up in arms about this….pun intended. While I can’t say I would buy it or play any suicide type game….whatever floats your boat. Natural selection can be a good thing.
