The Supreme Court will decide whether free speech rights are more important than helping parents keep violent material away from children.

    What do you all think? Should freedom of speech outweigh protecting our kids from the graphic nature of some video games?

      Freedom of speech should prevail. Parents are responsible for their kids no matter what. That's why the ratings system was put into place. If you don't want your kid to watch something then you should watch your kid.

      I made that last comment before I read the article. After reading most of it, I would say that I believe the ratings system is there for a reason. It should be used.

      But as far as minors still getting copies of games, or movies that are rated 17+, well that falls on the parent. Kids will be kids and will always find a way to get hold of things, that's why you need to talk to them.

      So many people nowadays expect the tv to be a babysitter but then cry foul when there kid repeats something bad. If you don't want your kids to see inappropriate things then maybe you shouldn't let electronics babysit them and be a parent.
