Court rejects ban on violent video games for minors

Posted By on Mon, Jun 27, 2011 at 10:13 AM

In another First Amendment case today, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 7-2, with Scalia writing for the majority, to uphold a lower court decision that states couldn't ban sale or rental of violent video games to minors.

Here's the full opinion. Note Clarence Thomas' dissent, which argues that there is no First Amendment right to speak to minors without going through their parents, a view that opens up a whole box full of pandoras should his like be quintupled on the court. God help us.
