Some guy’s trying to get a handgun that looks exactly like a smartphone into a wildly lucrative market.
Law enforcement officials are rightfully suggesting that this is a really, really bad idea.

While many Americans have struggled to recover, if they’ve recovered at all, from the crash of 2008, things have been booming in the gun industry.
There was a 30% increase in employment in the industry between 2008 and 2011, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
