Government Considers First Pokemon Go Regulations:
(Emily Zanotti) Pokémon Go players have certainly had their fair share of run-ins with the law this week — mostly on the wrong side of it. Two men sustained serious injuries and are facing possible charges after falling down a cliff in California chasing Pokemon. Two teens were arrested in Toledo after jumping fence into the Toledo Zoo following the digital creatures. And in LA, police are chasing after Pokémon Go players who wander on to random neighbors’ lawns.
But the app itself is now the target of lawmakers, who want to regulate the game, claiming that the app poses a significant risk to public safety, and the fun must end.
My Commentary: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C.S. Lewis
No victim, no crime, you arrogant, officious, sociopathic, control-freaks!
Of course, Brooklyn Democratic Assemblyman, Felix Ortiz, would be among the first of the political parasites to push for “regulation” (harassment of the peaceful and innocent in the name of “politics”). He’s the slimy lizard who fought to ban salt in NYC restaurants.

When will Americans finally say “enough is enough”?
