Supreme Court Pwns California's Violent Video Game Ban

Violent video games and the state of California haven't had the most cordial relationship. The state has long had a heavy ban on the sales of more mature titles to minors, a ban that carries a hefty $1,000 fine against the retailer who sold it. Thanks to the Supreme Court, the law has finally gotten "pwned".

The high court agreed with a lower appeals court ruling that called California's ban unconstitutional and in violation of the First Amendment. The law had never actually gone into effect since it passed in 2005 because of the lengthy legal proceedings. And now it never will, thanks to the high court's ruling.

Of course, this means that children and adults across the Golden State can now go to their favorite local gaming store and buy all of the bloody, shoot-'em-up goodness until the blood rushes out of their tiny little brains from the pure adrenaline that comes from turning a digital bad guy into mincemeat pie. Excuse me, apple pie. God bless America!
