You’ve heard of the Concealed Carry Permit, but gun owners might not have to “conceal” their weapon of choice anymore. That’s because they are working on a gun that hides in plain sight.
It was developed by a company in Minnesota called Ideal Conceal, and it’s a double-barreled handgun that folds up into a rectangular shape that looks like a cellphone when in its closed and locked position.
Obviously the police are not too crazy about it because someone they have their eye on could pull out what looks like a cellphone but is really a gun.
Bill Johnson, executive director and general counsel for the National Association of Police Organizations, said the concept of a disguised weapon is a cause for concern for police.
As of this writing, the product is still in the development stage, and the estimated price is just under $400. The .380-caliber derringer uses a hammerless firing system and holds two bullets.
Even if the folding gun is kept in plain sight, such as attached to someone’s belt, it might require a Concealed Carry Permit. The makers of the folding gun are urging eventual users to check their state and local laws on the matter.
