Proposed law in California would mandate smartphone 'kill switch'

Proposed law in California would mandate smartphone 'kill switch'.  Kill switches should be required on cell phones.  This law is meant to protect people.  So much of our information is on our phones, and, if your phone is lost or stolen, you are at a huge risk for identity theft.  Identity theft is a major problem because it can result in the loss of money, credit issues and other unanticipated headaches.  Most people won't take the time to download one of the many free apps that allow you to wipe out your phone.  If people did what they were supposed to, we wouldn't need laws.  Laws are often meant to protect people against themselves namely against their own stupidity.  This is one of those laws.
