A Facebook page which shows support for the Sheriff Deputies of Ohio released a photo of a fully functional gun disguised as a toy.

The photo, shared on the group’s Facebook page on Dec. 4, appears to be that of a Super Soaker squirt gun, Mad World News reports.

The Sheriff Deputies of Ohio described the shotgun, saying: “This is a fully functional shotgun, disguised to look like a toy. I suspect that we’ll be seeing more and more of this. Be careful out there. 1*”

The Sheriff Deputies of Ohio is not directly affiliated with an Ohio police department, but is made up of members of law enforcement.

In a comment, the individuals that run the page wrote: “[O]ur page is not affiliated in any way with any LE organization or group. We are a couple of Ohio Deputy Sheriffs and the opinions we state are ours and ours alone. We are here for cops and LE supporters.”

This is not the first time a shotgun disguised as a Super Soaker has been confiscated. In May 2012, a 54-year-old man was arrested and charged in Fresno, California, for walking around the city with a homemade shotgun hidden in the plastic shell of a Super Soaker, Gizmodo reports.
