Oklahoma Strikes Videogame Law


Posted September 18, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Oklahoma has struck down a law that would fine people for disseminating violent videogames to children, $1,000 for each offense, even if those people happen to be the parents of the children who receive the games. This is yet another variation of the same law that keeps migrating from state to state, and getting shot down in each one, as the law is patently unconstitutional.

Make no mistake. The politicians who propose these laws know full well that they will never pass. This is just another self-aggrandizing attempt to draw cheap attention to themselves by blaming the 'way the world is today' on gaming. A witchhunt, pure and simple.
