Lets fine the kids and kill an hour

Saw a really long and stupid debate on the floor of the House today. The bill was in regards to fining kids under 17 years of age $25 if they buy or rent mature rated video games. Beyond the fact that law enforcement would never consider wasting time and energy to enforce this law, it is completely insane that in the final 4 days of the session they would spend significant time discussing a bill which most critical element is a $25 fine. And of course it was also comical how limited there knowledge was of the games, sure you don't need to know to many details about a game where cop killing is unavoidable such as Grand Theft Auto, but why they call the green rectangle shaped things with dollar signs on them points is beyond me.
