California Pays Up for Failed Video Game Law

Posted by | January 27, 2012

The great state of California recently tried to legislate away video games with a law targeting the sale of violent video games. The law was smacked down in a 7-2 ruling from the Supreme Court, which is about as close to the Voice of God as legal rulings can be. Because of this, California has been obligated to reimburse the Entertainment Software Association for legal costs and other damages. Where is that money going? Digital Media Wire has the story.

    You know, it seems to me that recent efforts from lawmakers have made it really easy to figure out which legislators are a threat to our freedoms and our future. I’m beginning to think we should do something about voting them out of office. Might help to have some gamers in the ranks of the elected, right?

    For those who don’t feel that it’s a moral imperative to get rid of these jerks, we should point out that their incompetent, immoral foolishness will cost you a lot of money until you get rid of them.
