Clipboard Gun

The justification for this clipboard gun was that it would allow police officers to approach stopped vehicles looking as if they were holding a clipboard, not a gun.

The problem that I see is that it wouldn't take long for the public to realize that the clipboards were actually guns. In which case, even if a police officer was genuinely only carrying a clipboard, everyone would assume it was a gun.

Of course, the real problem is USA policemen. You wouldn't need this thing in a civilised country.

I can picture gang members with clipboard guns searching for their next victim. "I saw the killer, Mr. Policeman! He pointed his clipboard at the guy and it went blam!"
