Outlawing Guns in Cities = Requiring Cell Phones only locked in TrunkSubmitted by RichardKanePA on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 12:24
Cell Phones while Driving and Guns in our Cities Is Banning Then the Solution?
Many are killed or injured by drivers on a cell phone, some even on the Internet. If phones in cars were illegal outside of being locked in the trunk, there would be fewer traffic deaths not only in the US, but in Europe and Asia as well.
Clearly if there were no guns in this world there wouldn’t be gun deaths. Places that has successfully outlawed most private use of guns like England have far fewer gun deaths.
So the question is, what about the situation in a car where almost everyone agrees there is an emergency need for a cell phone? There is less agreement about there being an the emergency use of a private gun. However there are a few raw situations such as an elderly man repeatedly robbed of his Social Security check by intruders until one day when they came he fired a newly obtained gun in their direction and they ran away.
Cars could be equipped with cell phones on emergency frequency with a charge of $5 a minute for phone calls and when using it in an emergency just fill out a report on the emergency and get your charge debited back to your account.
By the way there could be free phone calls when a car isn't moving.
Gun owners could pay a $1000 bond and keep their guns in smart boxes chained to their beds and carry with them when they are awake, like having a briefcase or back pack or with a tiny pistol, a side pack. The box would have a fingerprint lock on it so a principle or even a few teachers would have the box with them and every time they clicked it open in a gun free area simply fill out an emergency report and have their $1000 bound debited back to their account.
The NRA and a lot of gun owners keep talking about a Constitutional right to a militia. Why not a real militia like in Switzerland where every adult who qualifies would be able to join their particular state's militia like the Ohio National guard and take a government issued automatic gun home with them.
