Wait…what?

The measure would have banned stores from selling or renting violent or sexually explicit games to minors, calling for $1000 fines for stores failing to comply. A Federal Court ruled that this violates the 1st Amendment. One million bucks ought to solve that problem, right Mr. Blagojevich?
