Explicit Video Games May Become Illegal (thanks theAntiELVIS) is a story (not too surprisingly illustrated by a GTA3 screenshot) with more details on the proposal by Rep. Joe Baca (D-California) about H.R. 4645 (story), his bill that proposes to "punish retailers who fail to enforce the video games' ratings system — slapping them with fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 and possible jail time for the third offense." The article offers quotes on both sides of the issue, including IDSA president Doug Lowenstein calling the proposed legislation "unconstitutional," going on to say that kids who get their hands on "M" rated games usually do so with their parents' knowledge. The article is uncertain about the chances that this will be ratified: "Baca has rallied 34 members of the House of Representatives to sign the legislation he introduced. But the bill's future is far from clear."
