oh wow, not even I though of doing this. There are so many sick people out there. I mean, I am not saying that I am not perverted a bit but I don't do stuff like this. AYAYAY!
There is already a law similar to this in Japan. Given the state of the economy, it is highly evident that politicians have more than enough to keep them busy, without wasting hard earned taxpayer dollars on something so absurd.
Most cellphone cameras already make a noise when they take a picture that cannot be disabled. However, as phones become more advanced, take the iphone for example, it becomes relatively easy for anyone to jailbreak their phone and disable something like this.
Politicians are intolerable in their incompetence.
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
most point a shoot cameras can turn the shutter sound off. And what about vidow coameras in phones? they dont have any sound eihter? what ever will they do????

This is just stupid. I totally agree with AjayD: It's a waste of taxpayers dollars by old fools that should be concentrating on much more important issues.
Peter King needs to realize: AMERICA IS NOT THE WORLD. Make all the laws you want, other countries don't need to follow them. Even if they did (for the most part), there's no practical way to enforce this in a manner that can't be worked around by even a neophyte.
Mr. King, please stick to making laws about things you understand:
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I agree that people should not be using camera phones to take said pictures. However there are a infinite number of workarounds on both the customer and phone company to avoid this, setting the frequency to 19kHz out of the range of 95% of adults for example. It doesn't really make sense to pass a law like this. Its a just a clear case of some politician who sees a wrong and passes a bill to 'fix' it. It sounds like this needs more thought and besides lets face it there is an economic crisis he should be focusing his attention else where.
There are plenty of reasons of why one legitimately might not want a sound made after every picture on their camera. A father taking a picture of his sleeping baby or a kid taking a picture of a squirrel who had the courage to come close before 'cluck' a distorted ignorant artificial shutter sound beats out of a crappy phone speaker.
In Japan as far as I know every single cell phone has a camera sound that cannot be removed (silenced) without hacking it.
However this is Japan, where at LEAST 50% of the population is on foot walking down the street from morning to night. Probably double the amount of escalators and staircases that you (might) see in america, thrown in with highschool girls who roll up their uniform skirts because it's popular. Not only highschool girls though, it's rediculous how short the skirts get over here. A short mini skirt in the states of equal length on a japanese girl would be considered a normal skirt over here.
Now, I still don't believe that there should be a law even here in Japan. If these women want to wear skirts so short that you can see their underwear (using a cell phone or not) while they're going up an escalator, or even short enough that you can see it while they're walking down the street, then that's their problem. They're asking for the attention.
I don't necessarily agree with people taking those pictures either, however I blame both parties. The women bring it upon themselves and then get upset when people take advantage of it...seriously, what do they expect?
I honestly think that SOME guys may complain when they see it happening because they weren't the one who got the good picture. "if i can't have it then nobody can!" sorta thing
