    The Carabinieri (Italian gendarmerie) have seized a pen gun from a mobster in Naples.

    My memory is pretty bad but I think it was 6 months ago when the Italian police captured one of those cell phone guns from another mobster.

    SFGate reports:

    A Carabinieri paramilitary officer holds a .22-caliber pen gun that was confiscated from a man in Naples. According to reports, Carabinieri were investigating if the weapon has been used in crimes or “acts of intimidation.”
