    True, but rarer than perhaps indicated in the article. They were discovered at least two years ago, but how many murders have been committed with one of these (not counting the monthly bill that's killing me)?

    Yes. The Chicken Little Brigade has been predicting that these things would be the downfall of western civilization for almost five years now.

    Sigh.

    A drill, a block of steel, a paper clip and a couple of rubber bands is really all ya need.

    That's been true for like 500 years.

    If it shoots bullets with gunpowder and does not look
    like a gun, ATF classes it as AOW Any Other Weapon:
    federal registratiom and tax. The classic pen guns and
    cane guns are examples of AOWs, as well as the
    "wallet" holster with a fingerhole that allows the gun
    to be fired inside the holster.

    If these are a commercial item, they would be subject
    to 1934 NFA registry. Sounds more like a black market
    item to me, and not a commercially available weapon.

    Back when that first came to light, I noticed that none of the sources ever showed the top end of the cell phone, and that there's just simply no way that each bullet is discharged through the same barrel. It really seems to just be a 4-shot .22 LR derringer, except without much of a barrel for any except the first shot (through the antenna?). Anyone have any idea what the ballistics are for a .22 LR coming out of a 1/2 inch-long barrel?

    Which also means that it's going to be pretty obvious there's something up, because most cell phones don't have four equal holes drilled through their top end.
