Almost everyone familiar with the law will tell you that the various new state laws to ban the sale of certain video games to children violates the First Amendment. It's not like this hasn't been tested before. Similar laws have been thrown out for that very reason. But, why would politicians trying to score points let things like the Constitution stop them? Judges, on the other hand, are supposed to uphold things like the First Amendment, so it's no surprise that a judge has issued an injunction in Michigan, keeping that state's law from going into effect, while also noting that the state has almost no chance of winning its case.
