    Nope. Just stupid.

    Why would anyone want to create the illusion of having a firearm their hand when they don't actually have one in their hand?? It runs the same risk that having a gun in your hand does, with none of the benefit. Dumb.

    If it looks like a gun and puts someone on fear for their life.......think you can see where this might go.

    No, this could be construed as brandishing, as an earlier poster alluded to. Of course... As a business owner in the VTech area I would not be adverse to selling them... Just for the lulz...
    They really need to get over their fear of firearms... by getting their own!

    I saw this and immediately thought, "well that's a good way to get shot"

    I know he's been banned, but could somebody send a few dozen of those bags to "he whose name shall not be spoken"?

    At least he'd have some place to put all his press clippings and court filings after he gets proned out for carrying that.

    stay safe.

    At first I just thought it was funny, but after thinking about it, I think eye95 said it best. All the potential trouble of a real gun, with no benefits.
