      School Shooting Won't Change Mayor's Mind On Cell Phone Ban

      http://www.nysun.com/article/40873

      The killing of five young girls in a shooting spree at an Amish school yesterday in Pennsylvania is not likely to prompt the city to revisit its ban on cell phones in schools. Mayor Bloomberg dismissed the suggestion that cell phones would have had any effect on the tragedy. "If you've got somebody shooting away, a phone doesn't exactly do you any good," the mayor said yesterday. He said that on the contrary, cell phones have been shown to increase gang activity. Five girls died and five others were wounded when a man lined them up against a wall and shot them in a one-room school in Bart Township , Pa.
