Should states be allowed to ban the sale and rental of violent video games to children? That's the question the U.S. Supreme Court will consider after hearing arguments on Tuesday in the case of Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants Association.
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger first signed the law in 2005, which prohibited the sale or rental of games that give players the option of "killing, maiming, dismembering or sexually assaulting an image of a human being" to anyone under the age of 18. Retailers who broke the law would be punished with fines of up to $1,000 for each infraction, The Associated Press reported.

They have ratings on the games for a reason, however this won't stop parents from buying them for their kids or them borrowing them from their friend's game library.
Sounds like a money maker and not so much about the kids.
