Protecting Kids From Violent Video Games
The Senate approved a bill this week that would ban the distribution or sale to children of video games and software determined to be graphically violent or sexually explicit. The bill would create certain thresholds that video games would have to exceed before they would be considered "harmful to minors" and be regulated under the proposal. Selling or disseminating these materials would be punishable by misdemeanor law. The bill passed despite argument from outside groups that the measure would be found unconstitutional.
