goverment going to far again

WASHINGTON Retailers who sell the latest "Halo" or "Call of Duty" video game to children would face substantial fines under a law being considered by the Supreme Court.

The justices will hear arguments Tuesday on whether to reinstate a California ban that would make it illegal for retailers to sell or rent violent video games to anyone under the age of 18. Parents could buy the games and give them to their children, but retailers who sold them to minors could face fines up to $1,000.

Supporters of the law say violent games are harmful to children.

But video-game companies say it's a First Amendment issue. And the lower courts have said California lacked enough evidence to prove violent games cause psychological harm to minors.

I don't see the problem with this..

At what age do you think young children should be allowed to play violent video games?

I think they should atleast be given a chance to mentally mature to a certain degree so they are not conditioned to shooting guns (real or virtual) by the time they reach adolescence - we all know how emotionally unstable many people can get at this stage.

I have to agree children should not have exposure to violence at a young age but the fact remains that most children don't buy their games instead they ask their parents to buy them, and of course most parents have no idea what it is they are buying.

But on the other hand who gave the right to the government to do the parenting for the country? I do understand that having laws is a must, but when big brother starts telling me what is morally correct and incorrect then one begins to wounder what the hell they are thinking. Seeing how the government has never been moral unless it could line their pocket with cash.

Billy,

I don't really see anything wrong with this. It's just like movies with a age on them (although i don't know if a retailer can get a fine for that). I think it's fine till the age of 18 to leave it up to the parents to decide.

Kids have always played violent games well before their 18th b-day.

Both good points. But where do you draw the line. As parents its their responsibility to teach right from wrong and real from role playing.

My kids grew up watching horror movies, that doesn't mean they are going to become serial killers.
