So it looks like the Supreme Court today refused to let California tighten up its laws to make selling video games to minors illegal. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Sacramento ruled that the law would violate minors’ rights under the First Amendment, and the high court agreed.
This is something for video game makers, sellers and players to celebrate. This has been a ridiculous tirade for the past few years with laws being created to make selling mature games illegal to minors and all the proposals for bans on video games due to violence. The ESRB rating exist for a reason and parents should be keeping tabs on their kids no matter what the law is. We should have the freedom to choose what content comes in and out of our lives as well as our families.
