Do kids have a right to buy 'Grand Theft Auto'?


Not a crime story, just an interesting case: A court knocked down a California law that forbid stores from selling violent video games to anybody under the age of 18. The U.S. Supreme Court has now agreed to hear arguments in the case. Video-game companies had sued to stop the law, saying that it limited First Amendment protection of their games. Cali legislators say the law was needed to protect young people and cited studies showing a correlation between violent games and aggressive or antisocial behavior.
