Supreme Court Does Something That Makes Sense, Strikes Down Law Banning Sale Of Violent Games To Kids - The Consumerist
I agree these laws were a bit draconian, but based on the free speech/expression argument seems like that could include a lot, would this not legalize selling pornography to minors as well? this will obviously be applicable to movie rentals/theaters as well as it it is a matter of expression after all as well right?
when video games were 8/16 bit this was not a big deal, even the best games still looked like cartoon violence but now many games have such a realistic depiction of horrible levels of violence.
I'm an adult and love video games and I'm not a fan of shooters/overly violent games (although I love the fallout series)
it says a lot about a society when it's ok for a kid to play a game where you can use a sniper rifle to decapitate someone (with associated close up action cam) but society will rise up against a 1/2 second exposure of a breast with a pasty over the nipple (super bowl wardrobe malfunction), we have such screwed up priorities. which has more potential to hurt the child more?
