Two More States Hop on the Anti-gaming Bandwagon

Posted Wed, Jan 25, 2006 by Awenyddion

It looks like Iowa and not surprising, Utah are jumping on the bandwagon to ban the sales of violent games to minors. Game Politics has the story.

Hogue's bill, HB 0257 is quite a bit different from most laws crafted to prevent kids from purchasing violent video games. Perhaps in response to the increasingly-heard "violent games as porn" drumbeat, Hogue's measure is designed to amend an existing Utah statute which makes distributing pornography and explicit nudity to minors a felony. Hogue's proposal adds "inappropriate violence" to the porn law.

Welp there you go folks. We're being lumped together with porn.

I'm going to go que up my "bomp chickee bom bomp" music and see you folks at the swingers club.
