Pride: Common Sense in Delaware
From an editorial on Delaware Online:
Too often it was the parents [buying violent games -ed]. Some not only buy the games, but they play them with their kids as well.Good Point! Good sense continues:
How is the state going to stop this kind of stupid behavior?
The responsibility belongs squarely on the parents.Will the censorship crowd accept this? When pigs fly. Maybe they will dig this argument:
They should be supervising not only what video games their children play, but what movies they see and what they do on the Internet. They should be asking what kind of games their children's friends are playing.
And if the state takes over this function [censoring games -ed], what kind of police powers would be involved? Will the state be supervising play dates? Would the state actually be effective in enforcing such a law? Or would the law become another dead-letter restriction that is revived periodically when someone raises a stink?I guess that would presuppose rational thought, so I guess not.
Video-game supervision belongs in the family, not in the halls of the legislature.
