From the ‘Even a Blind Squirrel Finds an Acorn Now and Then’ department, the Roberts Court gets one right:

“The Supreme Court says California cannot ban the rental or sale of violent video games to children. The high court agreed Monday with a federal court’s decision to throw out California’s ban on the sale or rental of violent video games to minors. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Sacramento said the law violated minors’ rights under the First and Fourteenth amendments.

The law would have prohibited the sale or rental of violent games to anyone under 18. Retailers who violated the act would have been fined up to $1,000 for each infraction. The court on a 7-2 vote said the law was unconstitutional.”

Here’s a novel concept. Whether or not children have violent video games should be up to the, hold on to your hats, parents, not the government.
