Supreme Court’s ruling on Video Games…

Today is a good day people. Well, people that play video games. Common Sense won and the people who are making a panic are now sad (I think). Let me rewind back.

Back in 2005, then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, sign a bill created by Leland Yee that try to go into that opposed the sale of violent games to minors and could fine retailers up to $1,000 for each violation. A federal appeals court, stop that from becoming law and so The Governator went to court in the highest of courts — The Supreme court.

As reported by IGN.com, the Supreme court ruled, in a 7-2 decision, that video games fall under the First Amendment.
