"In a 7-2 decision the U.S. Supreme Court has declared a California law banning the sale of violent video games to children to be an unconstitutional restriction of freedom of speech."
July 27 2011
 Quoting: Gingy


Its not the governments job to tell your kids what to watch or what games he can play, its yours. This is whats wrong with this country, no one wants to take responsibility for there own actions. There is no need to ban violent games or movies just don't let your kids play them no reason to ruin it for everyone.
 Quoting: patdeez84


I'm sorry, but if I want to make these things available to my child, I can get them for her myself.

Should they be selling children smokes and alcohol and prostitutes, too? I mean, freedom of speech and all, right?

No parent can be with their children 24 hours per day. There should be no real need to worry that they'll run to the corner store and purchase smokes, a quick fuck, and a violent video game while they're "out for a walk".

Sure they can get them now, but right now you have recourse against anyone who sells them those things. And well we should.

The rating should be enforced.

I agree that I should be the one to decide if my child gets those things.

NOT THE LOCAL STORE.

Where do you draw the line at what should be openly available to KIDS? Shouldn't my 4 year old be able to buy some booze and drink it all? How about some smokes, why shouldn't she be able to buy those?

Okay, sure, I'm always with her. So let's say a 15 year old. Why shouldn't alcohol be readily available to 15 year olds so they can get trashed whenever they want to, and anyone who wants to buy for them can do so and get them as drunk as possible?

Yeah. PARENTS should be the ones to decide these things.. NOT the store.

The store should say, "No" just like they should with alcohol and tobacco and numerous other things that are detrimental to kids.

If mom and dad want little Johnny to play "kill the president and rape his wife" video game, THEY can buy it for him.

I've been playing violent video games since i was about 5-6 years old (I'm 22 now) and even now I am still one of the most pacifistic and non-violent people you will ever meet. Video games don't cause people to become violent, that falls on the parents of the kids and the kids themselves. If the children's maturity level isn't high enough to handle said violent video games, then the parents should take responsibility and God forbid tell their kids no and refuse to buy it for them. Video games aren't the problem, people are. End of discussion.
 Quoting: Sirius2045


good luck navigating through that thick skull he has, same people who made the movie Refer Madness as weed propaganda. they're scared and when people are scared they fuck themselves. kinda like all their fear mongering of "terrorists" has lead to the Patriot Act and people are getting arrested more and more often due to this police state thinking like the OP has.
 Quoting: Keeper of Light


Very true. They won't just ban violent games for kids they will ban them for everyone. People need to realise that we have to learn to make our own decisions, otherwise we will continue living in a police state where our governments tells us everything we can or can't do.

Go to walmart and buy a M rated game and if you watch the display on their cash register it ask for ID same goes for gamestop and any major retail store

So I guess that means there is more involved then just violent videos, doesnt it?

 Quoting: Keeper of Light


WTF are you smoking, dude? What, you're going to rape and strangle your kids so that they "grow up tough" or some shit?

Kids are exposed through simply LIVING to far more sex and violence from BIRTH than I was even 20 years ago as a young adult. The average exposure of kids to violence is far greater now than it used to be.

NEVER did we have school shootings, NEVER did we have kids killing their parents. When someone was raped it was a HUGE deal because it just didn't happen. Theft? No.

We ran around outside all the time and we didn't lock our doors because THERE WASN'T A REASON TO. Kids weren't getting abducted constantly and nobody worried so long as the kids were home at night.

You're full of utter and complete shit. KIDS were not exposed to that kind of crap, and the world was a better place.

Now you can't live life without your kids being exposed to it from fucking birth, no matter what you do.

You have it all backwards. Our parents and our generation were stronger because life was simpler and there was far less stress. Kids weren't stressed and parents didn't have to worry all the time about their kids--only about bills and wars and generalized things.

You're living in a fucking la-la land if you think that exposing children to violence is some magic panacea to make them stronger. In point of fact, the opposite is generally the case. Children who had comfortable and positive upbringings tended to be quite a bit stronger--because they had a firm foundation for life.

Re: Violent Video Games for kids are OK according to.....
They can't go buy them have you tried to buy a mature rated game every retail store I have been to checks your ID to make sure your 18.
 Quoting: patdeez84


That must be a local thing.
 Quoting: Sandi_T


I guess if you think Walmart or gamestop are a local thing. Video games have a rating system like movies. It goes E- for everyone. T- for teen M- for mature. Go to walmart and buy a M rated game and if you watch the display on their cash register it ask for ID same goes for gamestop and any major retail store
 Quoting: patdeez84


Well, I don't frequent Wal-Mart and there's only one Gamestop here that I know of.

I've been in local places, and watched kids buy games that were definitely rated M.

At least one of those times was at Gamestop, too. The kid behind the register probably wasn't old enough to be purchasing them himself, and he didn't bat an eye. But the manager was beside him and helped him with the transaction because the guy had a trade-in.

I recall it in particular because I was impatient and irritated by the kid's general slow demeanor (and I don't mean simple-minded, I mean, he just acted like he was high and moved really, really slowly).

good luck navigating through that thick skull he has, same people who made the movie Refer Madness as weed propaganda. they're scared and when people are scared they fuck themselves. kinda like all their fear mongering of "terrorists" has lead to the Patriot Act and people are getting arrested more and more often due to this police state thinking like the OP has.
 Quoting: Keeper of Light


Very true. They won't just ban violent games for kids they will ban them for everyone. People need to realise that we have to learn to make our own decisions, otherwise we will continue living in a police state where our governments tells us everything we can or can't do.
 Quoting: patdeez84


of course man, how about this, all you dumb fucks out there who are sheltering your sweet little child from all the evil in the world, and all the private schooling because you want your child to be elite and never have to go to school with a poor kid, all the while pumping half of them full of ADD drugs and shit, guess what? your children's future is fucked because they don't know shit, they experience nothing our parents did. KIDS ARE BECOMING WEAK AND POWERLESS because parents are too busy trying to censor everything they see, so they get a fucked up fake view of the world.
 Quoting: Keeper of Light


WTF are you smoking, dude? What, you're going to rape and strangle your kids so that they "grow up tough" or some shit?

Kids are exposed through simply LIVING to far more sex and violence from BIRTH than I was even 20 years ago as a young adult. The average exposure of kids to violence is far greater now than it used to be.

NEVER did we have school shootings, NEVER did we have kids killing their parents. When someone was raped it was a HUGE deal because it just didn't happen. Theft? No.

We ran around outside all the time and we didn't lock our doors because THERE WASN'T A REASON TO. Kids weren't getting abducted constantly and nobody worried so long as the kids were home at night.

You're full of utter and complete shit. KIDS were not exposed to that kind of crap, and the world was a better place.

Now you can't live life without your kids being exposed to it from fucking birth, no matter what you do.

You have it all backwards. Our parents and our generation were stronger because life was simpler and there was far less stress. Kids weren't stressed and parents didn't have to worry all the time about their kids--only about bills and wars and generalized things.

You're living in a fucking la-la land if you think that exposing children to violence is some magic panacea to make them stronger. In point of fact, the opposite is generally the case. Children who had comfortable and positive upbringings tended to be quite a bit stronger--because they had a firm foundation for life. They felt secure and had faith in their parents' ability to protect them.

Unlike children who now have to face the possibility of being shot at school while mom and dad are nowhere around.

Yup I was born and raised in texas and if your family was poor you were treated like white trash. I remember not getting to play sports because my family was poor growing up. Sure they let you on the team but when games came around all the poor kids including myself got to sit on the bench while the rich kids got to play.

Sandi is right. There is more involved than the issue of "violent videos". It's the message in the bottle. It's the marketing of violence for violence sake, its the mixing of violence and sex. It's the commercials that glorify the product,,, aimed at kids. This is just a tiny tip of the iceberg. There is so much more involved, and you expanded on quite a few themes yourself -- all wrong or misguided. If it was up to me I would ban ALL marketing directed at kids, and burn violent videos along with the retailers that peddle them. Is that "liberal" enough for ya?

The rating system should be enforced. Best Buy's registers are programed to check ID, but it ultimately falls on the cashier to hand it over or not.

There are hefty fines for selling M rated games to underage consumers.

Personally, I don't think violent games should be played by young people, however it comes down to why people play video games.

Most people don't play videogames to do the same mundane thing they can go outside and actually do. So to a young person, the appeal to drive a car, or fly an airplane, or explore another planet, or gun down a pedestrian is defiantly large. why? Because you can't normally do any of these things. And it's fun.
