    Edit: OMG, I just agreed with a conservative...
    This should be decided and enforced by parents, not by the government, using MY tax money.

    I agree that this should be decided and enforced by parents. Disallowing sale to a minor is how the enforcement stays with the parent rather than with some store clerk that just wants to sell stuff to anyone who will buy it.

    I just really don't see what the big deal is with this one.

    I would FULLY understand being upset with this if they were banning "M" rated games in general, from anyone. But what they're doing is no different than with R rated movies, Cigerettes, Alcohol, Pornography, etc.

    There's a rating system at play for video games. Certain games are listed as Mature. Saying those games rated above the age of a kid can't be bought by the kid doesn't seem like a giant deal to me in the least.

    If you, as a parent, want the kid to have the game buy it/rent it for them.

    If this was an outright ban, absolutely not. But it seems to be tied to the rating system. Now having a problem with the rating system is a whole other ball and wax, but while we have it I see no reason why this would be a bad thing to have as a general statute. I highly doubt its a huge tax payer drain unless there's super secret investigations going on to find retailers that aren't upholding it, in which case year that's stupid.

    There's a lot of government "nanny state" type things to get up in arms about. I really don't see this as one of them.
