The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the appeal of the state of California in the case Schwarzenegger v. Video Software Dealers Association, concerning the constitutionality of a state law banning the sale of violent video games to minors.  California is urging the Supremes to adopt a new constitutional standard that would enable states to ban such games for those under age 18.

“We have a responsibility to our kids and our communities to protect against the effects of games that depict ultra-violent actions,” said The Governator.

The dire effects of ultra-violent entertainment on society are well-documented and have included, in extreme cases, the election of former action heroes to a state’s highest office.
