Violent Video Games Given Protection
Blood, bullets, and bombs are commonplace in the virtual world which received legal protection from the US Supreme Court Monday. Children now have a constitutional right to buy violent video games. The court ruled the state of California can't ban sales of such games to children. In a 7 to 2 vote, the justices ruled those games are art which is protected under the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution. A California mom, visiting her hometown of Gainesville, said she disagreed with the ruling.
"We need to know what they (children) are doing and what they are seeing and what they are exposed to. It would be very easy to bury your head in the sand but I rather not be surprised," said mother Jaime Schoenborn.
