E-RFD: Mobile Phone Gun

Most of us see airport security as a pain. Some of us even feel violated.
 
When you see the graphic below, you will understand why they want our cell phones through the x-ray machine.  If you get asked to test your cell phone at the airport, this is the reason.

Cell phone guns have arrived.  And they are real.
 
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.
 
Be patient if security asks to look at your cell phone or turn it on to show that
it works . They have a good reason! Wake up to our NEW WORLD!! We shouldn't
complain about airport security invading your privacy.
 

Note: E-RFDs are messages that circulate around the internet.  Some are factual and some are mythical.  We make no distinction between the types, here, but rather offer them pretty much as they come in -- as examples of comment and rumor from a global mind.
