      Technical bullets kill people. I predict very few people are bludgeoned to death with firearms.

      Likewise, using cellphones while doing other things can lead to death, depending on how involved and potentially dangerous those things are.

    Haha

    We can start with the iphones, you know, the real dangerous ones that scare us the most. We'll tell them it's just going to be iphones. Then on from there to all cell phones.

      Actually, having spent an age trying to jailbreak/unlock an unco-operative iPhone 4 for a friend, I'm all in favour of banning iPhones.

    How is someone killed by a cell phone?

    Were they beaten to death by a Droid?

      No, it turns out those weren't the droids they were looking for.

    That would certainly prevent a homicidal maniac from texting a classroom full of kids to death...

      Many states and cities have outlawed cell phones while driving. Do you really want to go there?

      Cell phones have been used to detonate bombs, which is what the wackos would turn to if they had no access to guns.

      But, then wackos don't care about restrictions anyway.

      I notice there is no link to prove the original assertion that more people are killed by cell phones then rifles.

      Wonder why that is.

        "Of the 5,474 killed because of distracted driving, 995 involved reports of a cell phone as a factor. However, the number of fatalities caused by cell phone use could be much higher. For those who were injured, 24,000 involved reports of cell phone use as a distraction."

        Geez, I never even thought about that. I would guess quite a few. I hear occasionally about a phone used to lure a victim to a specific location to kill them. Heck that might add hundreds, or thousands to the total. Then there are probably indirect uses also when a person checks their sig. others call history or text messages and suspects infidelity and kills because of that.

         

        Hmmm, you make a good point. I had initially thought they should just be disabled while in motion. (obviously no one would argue against that!) Maybe you are right and they should be banned completely.

      Cool! Then if cellphones are such deadly arms, then I don't see why any pro 2nd amendment fans wouldn't be fine with banning guns and just using the more-effective cellphones for self-defense! A win-win!

        Well, we need to start with the cell phones, and then move to repeal the 2nd. amendment.

      No need to do anything about the 2nd amendment. Since you believe cellphones are more effective and efficient arms than guns, that should be all you need for protection! I'm so glad you started this thread! The logic behind it is astounding! You've done it once again! Bravo!

        Convenient as they are, I believe the cell phone is a horrible invention.

         

        Remember when you were out and nobody could reach you? They had to wait until you got home or in the office...not now.

      I see links to articles about cars killing people, but still nothing about cell phones.

      I wonder why.

        Naomi Campbell threw her cellphone at a maid or an employee once, IIRC but I'm pretty sure the lady lived.
