Vermont Looking To Ban Phones 2020-01-09 18:53:53
"Well, according to a bill introduced in the Vermont Senate, owning a cellphone under the age of 21 would be illegal in the state, should the legislation pass."
Absolutely fucking dumb
"The bill, S.212, would make possession or use of a cellphone a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of a year behind bars or a $1,000 fine or both."
The day I get arrested for something so dumb is the day I give up and end my life
"According to the legislation, there are links between cellphone use by people under the age of 21 to a rise in driving fatalities, suicides, mass shootings, and terrorism."
It's already illegal to drive while on the cell phone. How about you enforce that law. Ya know, maybe do your fucking jobs pigs. Mass shootings, suicides, and terrorism are always linked to shit like this, when in reality it's a parent's duty to keep an eye on their kid and what they're doing on the internet. I'm gonna be so happy when the previous generation of people die out, because they're the only ones who believe this stupid shit. And I didn't get that mentality from the internet, I got that mentality from an adoptive parent who didn't raise me right.
“The internet and social media, accessed primarily through cell phones, are used to radicalize and recruit terrorists, fascists, and other extremists,” the bill reads.
Yeah, that doesn't mean that's all it's for. We got YouTube, porn, music, and games, which are all amazing things, but I'm gonna assume people like these cunts also believe that those all toxic as well for dumb ass reasons.
"Senator John Rodgers, a Democrat, said he introduced the bill on Tuesday to make a point."
If you look up a picture of John Rodgers, he looks like Jefferey Dahmer and Ron Swanson had a baby somehow. You expect me trust that face?
“I have no delusions that it’s going to pass,” he told the Barre Montpelier Times Argus newspaper on Wednesday. “I wouldn’t probably vote for it myself.”
Then your bitch-ass better be doing this as a publicity stunt.
"Rodgers says he thinks owning a cellphone may be more dangerous than owning a gun."
It doesn't matter if you have a phone, what matters is how you use it. People don't always use phones for crimes and honestly people literally need it, whereas guns should only be for military.
