Louisiana Gives Thompson's Video Game Law the Axe

Warchol:

The [Utah] bill, sponsored by Rep. Morely and supported by the Eagle Forum and Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert, would have made the sale of an age-restricted game to a kid a deceptive trade practice, allowing parents to sue the retailer.

But the bill's sponsor Louisiana Sen. A.G. Crowe has gutted the measure after conferring with retailers and attorneys. Even with that, the bill is being challenged by other lawmakers for being vague and duplicating other state laws.

Crowe can expect to receive ranting emails from Thompson with videos attached of scantily clad cartoon strippers.

  1. Just like Hilary Clinton wants to control the spread of violent Video Games, I don't see anything wrong with that. If this law will benefit the society as a whole, it should be implemented.
