Oh come on. HAVE YOU GUYS NOT SEEN THE WORLD LATELY?!? Kids bringing guns to schools, the world becoming even more dangerous. Please!! I think they should not ban phones from schools or as a matter of fact not have them off in school either. Because what if an incident like Virginia tech or Columbia high occurs again? You need to quickly be able to contact the authorities and call your parents to let them know what is going on.
It is a very scary feeling being stuck in a school with teens holding other teens hostage with weapons. I bet you never felt that now have you?
Why keep the kids in school though? Personally I think they should let them out of the windows. But keep them there in the classroom? Sure, giving the kid a death wish before he goes. NICE!!
Now you have no phone, and that happens. Every teacher or adult in the school is dead. How will you call the police to let them know??? YOU CANT!!!
What if your kid has their phone turned off, and an incident like that occurs. You want him/her to call 911 immediately, now if the phone is turned off and he/she tries to call. Your kid might end up having a souvenir through the side of his head, if you know what I mean? "bullet" = "death" Hint hint.
