Oh, now, THAT'S ridiculous.

Leave it to the ingenious Swiss - they've invented a teeny-tiny gun. It's smaller than their pocketknife! Pretty cute. The holster comes with a keyring, apparently...isn't that crazy?

But it's illegal in the US.


Because it's "too small to qualify for sporting purposes."

So unless you're theoretically going to hunt innocent animals with a gun, you can't own it? Priority-wise, I'd much rather permit the ownership of guns to fight harmful people than animals.

I won't even get into the Second Amendment's actual purpose, but wow. If you're not allowed to "brandish" a concealed weapon, it seems like this might be the most "un-brandish-able" one on the planet...
