Reductio Ad Absurdum; Or How To Make Leftists Defend The Indefensible

This is exactly the sort of thing that conservatives should be doing...using the rhetoric and flawed reasoning of the left against them.

This state senator is a Democrat who is pro gun-rights, although this is Vermont, which may be the nuttiest state in the union, so it's not surprising.

Bill would ban cellphone use for those under 21

The bill was introduced by Sen. John Rodgers, D-Essex-Orleans. Rodgers said Wednesday he introduced the bill to make a point.

“I have no delusions that it’s going to pass. I wouldn’t probably vote for it myself,” he said.

He said he’s a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the Legislature “seems bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights.”

He said, based on the information presented in the bill, a cellphone is much more dangerous than a gun.

Read the article and you will see why Vermont is a bit odd. Gun rights are hugely important to many Vermonters, but then so is "establishing an office of child advocate."

But the point stands. Extend Democrat demands to the point of absurdity. The classic and well-used example is the minimum wage. If $15 is good, then $50 must be great!

Here's one: drowning is the most common cause of death among children one to four years of age. Obviously the only solution is to ban children from pools and lakes and the oceans until they are five years old!
