Controversial Gun-Looking Cell Phone Case Draws Ire of Law Enforcement

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office is decrying a controversial cell phone case that appears to look like a handgun.

In a post on their Facebook page, the cover was labeled as “not a cool product or a good idea.”

The case, which is used to protect smartphones, looks eerily similar to a handgun and has a replica handle and trigger. In one photo, the cell phone is tucked into an individual’s back pocket and appears to be a handgun with the butt of the gun hanging out.

On the Facebook post for the prosecutor’s office, it said “a police officers 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.”

The Facebook post has certainly generated a ton of buzz, with nearly 800 comments and almost 3,700 shares on their page.
