Carrying A Gun-Shaped iPhone ‘Makes It Much Less Likely You’ll Catch Your Plane’

HughPickens.com writes: A passenger at London Stansted Airport seemed to think it was a good idea to have a gun-shaped iPhone case in his back pocket as he prepared to board a plane… [T]he police speculated on Twitter that they could proceed with charges against him for either a public order offense or for possession of an imitation firearm in a public place tweeting with the hashtag #dontbedaft that “Bringing this to an airport makes it much less likely you’ll catch your plane.” [In 2015] the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey offered this warning on Facebook to potential users: “Please folks — this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officer’s job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation…”
One Twitter user responded, “On what planet is this a smart thing to do?” But the New Jersey prosecutor has asked their followers on social media to share their own opinions.
