Re: Good, restrict the calls

You have just illustrated how people are too dependent on wireless technology. It seems anyone under age 30 can't seem to function without their wireless devices. Before the cellphones people would react for self-preservation and defend themselves instead of waiting for tech and public service to "save" them. And before this devolves into a gun debate I believe that there both needs to be rights to carry as well as stiff penalties when you do draw down on someone. The personal responsibility needs to be just as high as the potential risk/threat.

What does one have to do with the other.

Before cell phones if an armed maniac was in your building and you didn't have a weapon (either prohibited by law as it is in many states or you simply didn't have one), you'd hide in a closet or something and hope he didn't find you.

With cell phones, while you are hiding you can call the police.

Yeah, police sure helped those people at the Batman screening. Leave the phone at home and take the S&W.

Depending on what state you live in, simply carrying that S&W could land you in prison for a few years

Beats listening to people on the phone during a movie.
