Thanks to Frictionless Insight
for pointing to a St.Louis Today article indicating officials have decided not to give up
on trying to outlaw the sale of violent video games to minors, despite a recent tide against their effort. As a CNN article explains, ".. [the original] ordinance, passed by the St. Louis County Council in 2000, requires children under 17 to have parental consent before they can buy violent or sexually explicit video games or play similar arcade games"
, but this was struck down as unconstitutional
on June 4th, with a judge citing the First Amendment and the protection of free speech. The County has now set a petition for review, saying the courts "set too high a standard"
for proving a link between videogames and violence. The saga continues..
