Bay Area assemblyman Leland Yee plans to introduce legislation this week that would keep minors from purchasing first shooter videogames, where players need to kill in order to advance.
Yee, also a child psychologist, claims the games teach children how to stalk, maim, torture and kill people. The bill would penalize retailers and other stores that sell the games to anyone under the age of 17. A second bill would require video game retailers to separate children's games from adult games.
Previous attempts to introduce similar laws though, have been declared unconstitutional because of free speech issues.
