US Senator: Games Shouldn't Have First Amendment Protection

SPOnG: "California state Senator Leland Yee has defended his position on a law that seeks to ban "ultra violent" computer games to children under the age of 18. Speaking about the opposition from the games industry - that argues that the law will effectively censor and regulate the work of developers - he suggested that games should not be considered on the same level as movies." (Industry)

i don't get it. you can't buy an m-rated game without a parent if you're under 18 anyway.. what's the point of this law?
