    Tonight the local news did a story about Cell Phone Guns. They showed a video clip of someone firing one of these units and how to load and cock it. It looked pretty cool, it held four rounds of .22LR, had four barrels and fired by pushing buttons on the faceplate. The story went on to say that the origin of the guns and video is unknown, but believed to come from Croatia. They said that law enforcement officials are aware of these devices, but have not yet seen any in the US. They also spoke to someone at the ATF and was told that posession of such a device here would be a 15 year felony. However, the news reporter also said that they first learned of these guns in 2000 :confused:
    I myself read about these several years ago, so it came as no surprise to me, but if the media thought it was so important to inform the public on this issue, why the hell did they wait EIGHT years to report it ?
    Granted, sometimes news travels slow, but this is freakin' ridiculous.....
