Responses to the Minors Buying Video Games Case

The Supreme Court decision is out, but the issue still lingers. Many people feel strongly either way regarding the issue of whether minors should be able to buy violent video games, and their voices have carried long after the decision came out.

Those who agree (at least to some extent) with the decision:
Theresa B. Slusher, Cincinnati
Editorial from the Idaho Press Tribune

Mixed reactions:
Craig Anderson, ISU
Several other opinions

Those who feel that minors should in some way be restricted from buying them:
Alan Brownstein, UC Davis School of Law
Denver Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

How do you feel about the decision?
