Bulgarian Key-Fob Guns Show up in UK

In some circles a "Bulgarian key fob" is probably a perverse double entendre, in others, it's merely a key fob that fires bullets. Police in the UK (Manchester, mostly) have been uncovering and seizing numbers of tiny twin-shooters, sold legally as in Bulgaria as flare pistols, but converted to fire live ammo. The guns came to public consciousness in the UK after a 19-year-old man accidently shot himself in the head while trying to show friends at a nightclub how its safety lock operated (die, brutal irony, die). Police say posession of the fob carries the same sentence as that of a traditional firearm, five years. [Thanks to RD for the tip.]
