I guess parents are not responsible for the activities of their kids anymore?

The supreme court banned the ban. Video-games industries won this battle.

These are not toys, these are conditioning tools.

It's up to parents to guide their kids, not the state.

Thanks Anna for the post. SCOTUS did not uphold the ban. Their reason was that they can't dictate what a parent should be doing, and you can't fault them for that. The Catch-22 is that parents aren't doing what they should be doing. Very sad situation.

I am glad that Senator Yee is not giving up on this and is rewriting it.

I find it funny that arch-conservative Antonin Scalia is the writer of the assent. Amazing. Yet he bans the right of women to the freedom of their own bodies. If he is on the court when the inevitable Roe V Wade round 2 occurs I'll be surprised if we can still vote, drive, or leave the house without a male to go with us. But my hypothetical 10 year old can without my knowledge or permission buy the most violent video available. Freedom for one is suppose to be freedom for all.

Parent should not try to pass off their responsibility to those who are make or sell these games, as a parent it is up to them to monitor their children activities as well as what games they are playing. Just as one would do if a child is playing with his/her friends out side keeping an eye on their activities is your job not the companies who make these games or the ones who sell them. You as the Parent have the last word on what they can play and what not to play.

Some parents care what their children watch and what games they play. Some beat their children to death for wearing the wrong colour hat.. some parents let their children play with guns..some lock guns away. Our laws keep children safe not parents. And those who do not think so may one day meet the child who was allowed to kill a billion folks in a game.. and a had now graduated to the real world.. not going to happen..already did.
