Video games have always been the subject of much controversy. Are they too violent? Perhaps some of them are…but this new law now being considered by the Supreme Court itself doesn’t stop at video games. It goes on to movies, music and books. These mediums have all previously been protected under the 1st Amendment but if the Supreme Court decides to unconstitutionally remove that protection from video games, they can also remove it from the others.
My guess is that the first book to go would be 1984 by George Orwell. After all, the U.S. Supreme Court would, of course, be quite threatened by a book that describes exactly where our country has been headed.

P.S. I’d love to hear where you stand on video game violence!
