Supreme Court Rules Against Ban on Violent Video Games

To the chagrin of nanny state advocates in California, the United States Supreme Court has ruled that the state of California cannot ban violent video games from being sold or rented to children. The ruling came down through a 7 to 2 decision.

The Blaze writes:

The high court agreed Monday with a federal court‘s decision to throw out California’s ban on the sale or rental of violent video games to minors. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Sacramento said the law violated minors’ rights under the First and Fourteenth amendments.
