    My pity and sympathy go out to parents in Oklahoma, who will now be badgered incessantly into buying the games that the kids want.

    Yet another example of the government expanding its invasive reach because WEAK PARENTS refuse to BE parents. They can't say no, and they consider it an "invasion of privacy" to check out their kids' room and see what they're doing. :barf:

    Does anyone else find it ironic that the same weak securitymoms and dads who are willing to give up all our civil liberties out of fear consider it invading privacy to go through their kids' rooms?

    Don't worry, I don't believe the kids will have any problem continuing to get the games without their folks approval. Yard sales, swap meets, FREINDS, etc... As it is, many stores do already have age limitations based on those ESRB ratings. Also, remember that minors do not have the ability to enter into contracts, so this is a moot point.

    Good job Oklahoma, just what the world needs more restrictive nanny state laws to solve the imaginary problem of video-game brainwashed teen killing machines. If video games desensitize kids to violence, why is the crime rate still dropping??
