Following the unfortunate events in Connecticut, a Democratic congressman has called for support of a bill that would make it law for all video games sold to carry a rating by the ESRB. I feel this legislation is a horrible idea and will likely generate controversy. Not all that long ago, the Supreme Court passed a ruling giving full first-amendement rights to video game and digital content publishers.
One such section of the bill reads as follows:
SEC. 2. RATING LABEL REQUIREMENT FOR VIDEO GAMES.
I would hate to see the progress in that area be squashed by a bunch of liberals. You can find a link to the article here. You can find information on the bill here.
