Ban cell phones?

Mass Shootings in 2015 - Mass Shooting Tracker

Mass shooting numberss:

In 2013 we had 502 killed and 1266 injured
In 2014 we had 383 killed and 1251 injured
In 2015 we had 378 killed and 1090 injured (pro rated out to 504 and 1453)

So in three years that is 1389 killed and 3970 injured (or 5359 total injured or killed).


Lets compare those numbers to cell phone related traffic deaths:

Texting and Driving Statistics 2014 | InvestorPlace

From the Department of Transportation: Cell phones are involved in some 1.6 million automobile-related accident annually ó which cause some 500,000 injuries and leads to the deaths of some 6,000 each year.

Notice that is EACH YEAR.

Would anyone advocate for the rounding up of all cell phones?
They are 12 times as likely to take the life of an innocent person.
