A Vermont state senator introduced a bill this week to ban the use of cell phones among anyone under 21.
You read that right. And no, not just the use of cell phones while driving.
The proposal is to make it illegal, punishable by up to one year in prison, for people 20 and under to have or use a cell phone.
The bill has some great justification written right into it.
For instance, “The Internet and social media, accessed primarily through cell phones, are used to radicalize and recruit terrorists, fascists, and other extremists... Cell phones have often been used by mass shooters of younger ages for research on previous shootings.”
The bill concludes that since the Vermont government has seen fit to ban under 21 use of cigarettes, alcohol, and firearms, this is the logical next step.

Why stop there. They will still have tablets and computers to access the internet.
Let's just make it a felony for anyone that makes available to any person under 21 years of age any information by any means, electronic, written or verbal or any object that could be used to hurt themselves or others.
Or just destroy all information period.
If it is out there and they want it,, they WILL get it.
No schooling, books or even learning to read until you are 21. You can't be trusted with knowledge of any kind.
Except for the elites. They are better than us anyway.
Book burning anyone?
Makes about as much sense.

You just can’t believe what those DemocRats will come up with next. Are they actually trying to ruin their chances of ever winning an election again?

I think something similar to this was tried in the past.
