Gov. Seeks Ban on Violent Video Games
CHICAGO - Gov. Rod Blagojevich is proposing to make it a misdemeanor for businesses to sell violent and sexually explicit video games to minors, a step that other states have tried with little success.

"If you're 18 or older and you're a grown-up and an adult, that's your business," the governor said. "But I don't believe that my 8-year-old daughter has a constitutional right to cut somebody's head off in a game that she plays."

No Shit Rod, I don't think this is a topic that was completely thought through when the constitution was written. I don't believe that a 16 year old minimum wage retail employees deserves a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison or a $5,000 fine for selling some crappy (well marketed) video game to your sadistic daughter.
