    pointless ban. If a kid is stupid enough to be influenced by a violent video game into becoming a POS menace to society, he/she is propably stupid enough that he/she is going to be a POS menace to society anyway.

    If someone thinks violence on television or in video games is why there is violence in the U.S. then they are clueless. All I have to do is look at Japan where the animated television shows typically involve more violent and graphic material than American animation. Yet somehow Japan does not have high rate of violent crime.

    This law is about parents shirking their duty. Not their duty to make their kids ignorant of violence, but their duty to raise their children with strong values that will encourage them to avoid violence.

    The OP says it would be the first time the govt forces restrictive sales of a private company, but that's not really the case. Unless I'm just misunderstanding. The govt forces restrictive sales of tobacco, porn, and alcohol. I don't see this as being anything different, unless I'm missing something??

    That aside, I think it's stupid and parents should just actually parent their ****ing kids.

    No, it would give the ESRB(Entertainment Software Rating Board), a privately owned, and run organization the ability to restrict the sale of certain titles from a portion of the populous under law. They are the organization that rates games, and it would be the first time in this country that a privately owned organization has that kind of power.

    not any more dumb than allowing the Motion Picture Association of America to determine which movies a minor may or may not purchase a ticket to watch.

    side note: wiki states that the MPAA rating system is a voluntary system not enforced by law, it is one of various motion picture rating systems used to help parents decide what movies are appropriate for their children. really it is voluntary and not enforced by law? let a theater sell an R-rated ticket to a 15 year old and see what happens if someone complains.

    still is a dumb idea. just another way to let lazy parents keep on being lazy.

    There might be some industry induced problems, but nothing from the government.

    I highly enjoy the MPAA rating system (except for it being used by the industry to push certain films away from box office success) in comparison to it being enforced by the law. Nevertheless, anyone who has worked in the movie theater industry knows the number of times a parent complains about a rated-R film being shown to they and their children....despite the fact that it is rated R.

    It's a lose-lose situation.
