Yesterday, the US Supreme Court overturned California’s ban on selling violent video games to children.  I have to admit, I’m a little torn.  Is it really okay to allow kids to purchase violent video games?  I have no problem with adults purchasing these games, but there are morons out there who will hand over a game to their six year old without a care in the world.

On the other hand, I believe that parents should be responsible for their own children and that includes determining if their child can play certain video games.

I do have an issue with Justice Thomas’s dissent:  “The practices and beliefs of the founding generation establish that ‘the freedom of speech,’ as originally understood, does not include a right to speak to minors (or a right of minors to access speech) without going through the minors’ parents or guardians.”

Really?  We’re going to make a judgement call on our Constitution to what the founding generation thought?  Put it that way and women should still not have the right to vote.
