It's amazing that despite court after court after court after court pointing out that attempts to put in place laws that ban the sale of video games are unconstitutional, states keep on trying. Last year, Illinois had its law shot down as unconstitutional, and an Appeals Court has now upheld the ruling, pointing out that the ban violates the First Amendment. The same has been found in Michigan, Minnesota, Louisiana, Oklahoma and a few other states as well. However, politicians keep pushing forward with such plans because it plays well with some voters. Update Adam Thierer notes that this makes the score Gamers 10, Censors 0, and points out just how much this useless effort has cost taxpayers.
