EMA President Issues Statement on SCOTUS Fight

The Entertainment Merchants Association president issued a brief statement on today’s oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court related to Schwarzenegger v. EMA. Overall EMA’s top executive seemed upbeat about the whole ordeal:

"Today’s U.S. Supreme Court argument in Schwarzenegger v. EMA was both spirited and stimulating. I’m pleased that the justices recognized that the standard in the California law for restricting ‘violent video games’ to minors is unworkable in practice. I am confident that the justices will see beyond the facial appeal of restricting “violent video games” for minors and hold the law unconstitutional." – EMA President Bo Andersen.

    The biggest sticking point seems to be: the gov’t restricts porn sales to minors for no good reason so why shouldn’t it restrict violent game sales to minors for no good reason?
