A New Threat -- Cell Phone Firearms

Air travel took a turn for the scary. Cell phone firearms arrived on the scene.

Beneath the digital phone face is a .22 caliber handgun capable of firing four rounds in rapid succession using the standard telephone keypad. European law enforcement officials are stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys. They say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe .

Only when you have one in your hand do you realize that they are heavier than a regular cell phone.

Screening lines at airports are going to get a lot longer. This invention is unsettling. This particular weapon depicted above was invented in 2001, and has shown up a couple of times in Europe at airport screenings.
