You have to be a real idiot to carry one of these.

Anti-gun advocates are blasting a new iPhone case that looks like a pistol grip — and could be mistaken for a real gun.
The gun grip cases, which can be purchased online or on the street, could no doubt doom young teens, community advocate Tony Herbert said.
“If I were a cop and it was dark and I saw this (case) on a person, my first thought would be to pull my gun and defuse the threat,” Herbert said Tuesday. “I am not trained in law enforcement so can you imagine what a trained individual who faces bad guys every day would do?”
Some of the cases come with an app that puts up a picture of a gun on the screen — completing the overall image.
The gun cases — which sell anywhere from $10 to $49 — come in black, white and pink, according to Japantrendshop.com.
