Supreme Court on violent video games

The Supreme Court ruled today that California cannot ban the sale of violent video games to minors.

As much as I hate this decision, I think the Justices probably interpreted the First Amendment accurately. It just goes to show that what John Adams (Signer of the Declaration of Independence and 2nd President) said is true: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." 

Our guarantee of free speech assumes that Americans will be a moral and religious people who will use that freedom responsibly. Sadly, this is becoming less and less the case.
