  • "But, according to [sponsor of the bill John] Rodgers, is this bill really about bullying and distracted driving. Rodgers actually introduced the bill to make a point about gun rights. According to the text of the bill, another justification for this ban is that "Cell phones have often been used by mass shooters of younger ages for research on previous shootings." Rodgers, a supporter of the Second Amendment, says the Vermont state legislature "seems bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights." The information presented in the bill paints a picture that a cellphone is actually more dangerous than a gun, says Rodgers. “I have no delusions that it’s going to pass. I wouldn’t probably vote for it myself,” Rodgers said." https://pjmedia.com/trending/vermont-bill-would-ban-cellphones-use-for-people-under-21/

  • I've been using this argument for years! He makes some very valid points. I'm glad he has no delusions it will pass, because it won't. Like guns, knives, pills, and cars, a cellphone is just a tool and children need to be taught how to use them safely. I don't usually advocate for legislating life lessons. Parents and teachers should teach, governments should govern. Sometimes I wonder if our representatives know this.
  • Stupid. Plain stupid.
  • Underage? There isn't an age limit as far as I know.
