Company Who Wants To Sell Mobile Phone Jammers Believes Banning Them Is Unconstitutional
from the cellular-armageddon dept
While their push sounds reasonable, there's a litany of problems that could arise by making this gear more readily available. The company is eager to sell three varieties of signal jamming gear with effective ranges of fifteen to a thousand meters to law enforcement. But increased availability of this gear obviously means more of the gear finding its way into general circulation, and more people using it in violation of law. That means increased instances of blocked cellphone communications anywhere someone gets annoyed by a high decibel chatty gossip. There's also the question of what kind of peripheral damage could occur when you've got every law enforcement office in the country using the gear every time there's a drug bust. Note CellAntenna never filed a petition for rule-making with the FCC, instead heading directly for a lawyer in the hopes of a faster resolution. We're sure they won't mind the free press they'll get for battling with Kevin Martin and company, either.
