More on Washington Gaming

U.S. Court Blocks Washington Video Game Sales Law (thanks Mike Martinez) has the latest on the long-running saga about attempts to curtail the sale of certain games to minors in the state of Washington. Here's a bit:

A federal judge on Thursday issued an order postponing enforcement of a Washington state law designed to restrict the sale of violent video games to minors.

U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik issued an injunction blocking enforcement of the law, which was set to take effect from July 27 and would have imposed a $500 fine on anyone who sold a video game depicting violence against "law enforcement officers" to minors under age 17.

"Plaintiffs have raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of House Bill 1009 and the balance of hardships tips in their favor," Lasnik wrote in his order from the court in Seattle.

This DELAY is another example of a lunatic justice system in america. Instead of a delay, the law should be revoked and parents should be left to their own devices! For a country that breathes violence and death across the globe, it is ironic that so much money is wasted on this trivial shit.
