New York Sen. Charles Schumer wants investigation into gun that looks like iPhone

NEW YORK -- Sen. Charles Schumer says there needs to be a federal investigation before a gun that looks like an iPhone comes to market.

Schumer on Monday called on the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to investigate Ideal Conceal, the company which has said it's planning to bring the gun to market soon.

Schumer says that toys that look like guns shouldn't be sold. And he says that guns that look like toys or everyday items shouldn't be sold either.

He says the gun may violate federal law that doesn't allow guns to look like common items.

ATF had no comment. Emails to the Justice Department and to Ideal Conceal were not answered. null
