Video game bill fines children $25

Republican governor Tim Pawlenty has singed into law SF 785. The law will come into effect from August 1 and will impose a $25 fine on minors who purchase a Mature or Adults Only rated video game. The retailer will not face any fine, but will be required to display a sign notifying customers of the fine.

How does a governor think of a dumb law like that. What ever happen to the parents looking out for their own children or retailers just ask for I.D. It's their job not the government. Here in NY if a child have purchased a pack of cigarettes, that store will get into trouble. The same should be for adult type games.
