Proposed Bill to Make Cellphone Use Under 21 a Crime Punishable by 1 year in Prison
Free Thought Project
Vermont — In the land of the free, you can join the military, get shipped off to war, have both of your legs blown off—for your country—all at the age of 18. However, in December, TFTP reported that if you try to smoke a cigarette or use tobacco in that same land of the free, at this age, you will now be prosecuted by the law. As if this “age tyranny” wasn’t enough, lawmakers are now proposing a bill that would make cellphone use for anyone under 21 years of age a crime.
Rest assured that the tyrants attempting to take away your access to information are doing so “for your safety.” Democratic Sen. John Rodgers (Essex-Orleans) claims that cellphones are turning kids into terrorists and corrupting their minds. So, the only option is to kidnap and cage children who dare access a cellphone.
The bill, S.212, would make the possession of a cellphone punishable by up to one year in prison, a $1,000 fine, or both. Sounds like they are standing by their state motto of “Freedom and Unity” to me!
“The Internet and social media, accessed primarily through cellphones, 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 reads.
