My issue with this is that this doesn't help the main issue... bad parents. There are countless parents who buy any game for their child, no matter the rating. I mean, When I worked at EB I told a parent directly that Silent Hill 2 is extremely gory and violent and no child should play it... what did the mother do? Cursed me out for questioning her decision... I can give plenty of other examples of such horrible parenting.

This bill only reflects the retail stores, it still does not store poor parenting. If they allow such a bill it should be like Alcohol and cigarettes. If you sell or aid in the purchase of them for a minor, you will be punished... not just the retail store/worker.
