At first glance, it sure looks like a real pistol. The pink and white ones, less so, but the black one? Whoa.
But they’re nothing more than iPhone cases. Dumb, stupid and dangerous phone cases that can get you killed and put an officer in a horrible situation, law enforcement officials have warned.
Cops and community leaders across the country -- and abroad -- Wednesday morning are decrying the phone case, urging people not to buy them and calling for a ban.
“I would NOT suggest purchasing this cell phone case, which was designed to look like a firearm,” NYPD Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison, the Commanding Officer of the 112 precinct in Forest Hills, Queens.
The cases can still be found online for as little as $10.
Amazon appears to have pulled the “Peneric Gun Pistol Shape Plastic Material Back Case Cover for Apple iphone 6” that was being sold for $10.10 by Epower Mall.
Trendhunter.com reported last year that the cases also came with an app -- to play Russian Roulette.
