June 27 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a California law prohibiting sales of violent video games to minors, saying the ban is an unconstitutional infringement on speech rights. Also today, the nation's highest court ruled that a 13-year-old Arizona public financing law violated the speech rights of opposing candidates.

Dustin Johnson: It seems someone didn't read the results of nearly all the tests to determine if video games make kids violent.
jinto1980: @infernalphast9 I'm a socialist so I'm mostly dissatisfied since i could vote.
Anubis2445: they want to ban them because they keep getting owned by CoD pros
osamabinpawning123: banning violent video games will probably have a bad effect on the economy
Kiddeth: @BigdogWitBigdog then you should figure out what I was referencing.
Samuel L. Bro: @Kiddeth Not true what? I don't understand incomplete sentences.
MrZombieIsHungry: This finally comes full circle to where the focus should have pointed all along. Parents it's time to get off your butts and actually be a parent and monitor what your child is playing!! It's not the game makers or stores responsibility to be responsible for your child playing a M rated game. If you don't like violent video games then stop complaining and be a parent. As for me.... I'm 39 and I still love my GORE. GORE GOOOOOOREEEEE Zombies!!! Resident Evil or Silent Hill anyone?!? :D
jinto1980: so a victory for video games sidelong with another case of pro-republican law making it harder and harder for a democrat to get as much backing as a bought off republican. Well at least video games are now considered protected speech.
AkiraTheGodEater: I teared a bit.. thank you!!! :D
Call Me Leo: @Smellmenoweww no, but what about ages 12-17? I'm 13 and i don't act like that.They should put none under 10 can buy an M rated game at all, and 12-17 should have parental permission
zzmorg82: @Smellmenoweww even if it did, parents would still buy the kids game for them so...
Kiddeth: @BigdogWitBigdog not true
Samuel L. Bro: @Smellmenoweww Not trying to sound like a fanboy, but try your hand at PC gaming. No little kids screaming into microphones there.
soulnomod: Wait im confused did the law get inforced or not?
