Should states be allowed to prohibit the sale of violent video games to kids?

UNDATED – The U.S. Supreme Court today will hear arguments on links between violent video games and anti-social behavior.  The high court will consider whether or not states should be allowed to prohibit the sale of violent video games to children.

At issue is a pending California law that allows for up to a $1,000 fine to retailers who sell violent video games (killing, maiming dismembering, or sexually assaulting an image of a human being) to children.

The state of Texas is one of several states that have joined California in its efforts to keep the law intact.
