What it does say is that you cannot legally sell a child a game who is younger than the rating of the game without the parent's consent. That does not take away parental responsibility it actually encourages it as it would force retailers to say to the buyer you're too young, bring in your parents if you want to buy it. With this law it would actually hold the retailer responsible for selling a M rated game to a minor and open them up to severe fines and/or other penalties.
i'm all for it, kids shouldn't play M rated games period.
