More on Violent Video Games

State Representative Fred Morgan wants to ban the sale of violent video games to minors, stating that parents are not aware of what is in the video games they are playing. The ACLU says parents should decide what their children can watch, not the government. The ACLU's argument sounds good in theory. But in reality, most parents just don't pay attention to what their children are renting. When I worked at Blockbuster, Blockbuster had a policy of not renting M rated games to kids unless the parents said it was okay. It was my experience that after we called the parents two or three times at work during the day, the parents usually just had a note put on the account to let their children rent whatever.

And people wonder what is wrong with kids these days. The parents don't care what they do. They don't seem to take the time to be a parent.
