A picture of a seemingly harmless toy is making waves throughout social media. As it turns out, the “toy” is actually a fully functioning shotgun made to look like a Super Soaker.

The photo, which was shared on the Facebook page Sheriff Deputies of Ohio, has been shared over 130,000 times, has more than 9,000 likes and nearly 5,000 comments, most of which express in one form or another how such a device is a really bad idea.

The page admins state that the page “is not affiliated in any way with any LE organization or group” and simply displayed the picture as a cautionary measure for law enforcement officers to be aware of what’s out there.
