Cat Can't Scratch It

California lawmakers are about to make the state the second in the nation to approve a bill that would require all phones sold to have kill-switch software installed for owner-user safety.
The California bill would be the second state law in the country mandating a kill switch. The first was passed in Minnesota in May. There are also two bills in the U.S. Congress that are similarly seeking a mandated kill switch.
