Weird Law Name

Just heard about a new bill that is being introduced in the USA. The bill "requires any mobile phone containing a digital camera to sound a tone whenever a photograph is taken". Personally I've no opinion one way or the other about that, silly law really, but the name is the best thing. It is called the "Camera Phone Predator Alert Act". It invokes images of camera phone wielding monsters crouching in the darkness waiting to pounce unless the phone makes a clicking noise to scare away people.

How can anyone vote against a bill that is a "Predator Alert Act". Funnily enough I'd be more afraid of a predator with a hand gun than a camera phone. Shame they cant come up with anti gun laws like that instead of the "NICS Improvement Act of 2007" or the Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009.

This is a great about framing.
