Apparently, this is just the latest in a series of similar incidents around the country.
When I first heard about the law, I thought that it made sense. After all, I though that there were similar laws fining movie theaters if they let minors in to see R rated movies. It turns out I was wrong. The MPAA ratings are, and have always been, voluntarily enforced by movie chains, and are not legally instated.
Having learned this, I changed my tune and opposed the legislation.
