A Louisiana District Court today shot down a law that bans the sale of violent videogames to minors.
According to the Associated Press: "U.S. District Judge James Brady said the state had no right to bar distribution of materials simply because they show violent behavior. Brady issued an injunction, calling the law an 'invasion of First Amendment rights' of producers, retailers and the minors who play the games."
Other states that have shot down similar legislation include Minnesota, Illinois, California and Michigan.
Which all would be business as usual, I guess, but think about the fact that Louisiana had its biggest city blown off the face of the earth almost a year ago, and the best the politicians in town can come up with a ban on videogames?
