The gun and video game industries have quietly developed a marketing relationship and that link is prompting scrutiny on the heels of the shooting in a Newtown, Connecticut school earlier this month.
The U.S. Supreme Court by a 7-2 vote Monday struck down a California law that banned the sale or rental of violent video games to children under the age of 18.
California officials argued that they should be allowed to limit minors’ ability to pick up violent video games on their own at retailers because of the purported damage they cause.
