Supreme Court: California Can't Ban Violent Video Game Sales To Minors (Dammit)
Seen here reminding us why it's always a good idea to wear like six condoms, a violent child rages out and threatens to stab his own knee after playing violent video games. You know, or maybe he's posing because somebody told him to. Whatever the case, his face is pissing me off. But California can't ban the sale of violent video games to him!
On a 7-2 vote, the high court upheld a federal appeals court 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 had ruled that the law violated minors' rights under the First Amendment, and the high court agreed.
"No doubt a state possesses legitimate power to protect children from harm," said Justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote the majority opinion. "But that does not include a free-floating power to restrict the ideas to which children may be exposed."
BOOSH! More kids calling me queer on XBox live, awesome. Wait a minu-- I demand a recount! I kid, like their parents wouldn't just succumb to their whining and buy them the game anyways anyways. Ha -- parenting! LOLOL.

Thanks to neolardo, who shot down Lichemangelo's plan to sell weed-pizza to kids on the street.
