Washington's Game Law

Washington state bans sale of violent video games to minors on CNN Money has the follow-up to reports that such a measure was being considered (story) saying that the state of Washington has indeed banned the sale to minors of computer and games that depict violence towards the police. Here's a bit:

Specifically, the law forbids selling minors any video or computer game depicting violence against law enforcement officials. Among the titles affected are industry best sellers "Grand Theft Auto 3" and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", both published by Take Two Interactive (TTWO: Research, Estimates). Presumably, Atari's (ATAR: Research, Estimates) $30 million "Enter the Matrix", which hit store shelves last Thursday, would also be off limits to its core audience. That title earned only a "Teen" rating, since it is not graphically violent, though police officers are in-game enemies.

Retail employees who sell these games to minors are subject to fines of up to $500.

If you outlaw video games, then only the outlaws will have video games.
