Groups Sue to Overturn Video Game Curbs

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Two trade groups representing video game makers filed a lawsuit Monday seeking to overturn the recently passed California law banning the sale or rental of violent video games to minors.

The Video Software Dealers Association and Entertainment Software Association contend the law is unconstitutional and violates First Amendment free speech rights, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose. The suit names Gov.
I don't see this violates the 1st Amendment, it is limiting the sale. The companies are still free to make and distribute games to adults all they want and parents can buy the games for their kids all they want. The kids just can't purchase them.

From my understanding of the new law, the problem is that the what the state defines as violent is highly subjective. The state can ban a Buggs Bunney video game because Elmer Fudd got nailed by an anvil.
