Stalled Indiana VG Legislation moves to State Senate

After a recommendation from Indiana's Committee on Economic Development and Technology, the State Senate of Indiana will consider legislation aimed at restricting the sale of M (mature) and AO (adults only) rated games to minors. Apparently, committee members were shown an inflammatory video depicting characters being urinated on and then set ablaze and gunning people down in church.

Indiana's Senate recommends to itself to adopt new legislation

Now that the ESRB will have full-time game raters, the whole process is becoming more streamlined. I suppose the end result of ratings is regulation, and seeing as how I am no longer a minor, I do not think legislation like this is a bad thing. Have I turned to the dark side?
