ECA Supreme Court Rally video shows parents, kids, and Mario support First Amendment rights

On November 2nd, a crowd amassed outside the Supreme Court Building in Washington D.C. to show their support for a media we all know and love – video games. The day marked the beginning of the oral arguments in the case of Schwartzenegger v. EMA, and the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) caught up with a few rallying gamers, game developers, parents, and of course Adam Sessler to get the lowdown on free-speech.

You can check out further coverage of the arguments for and against the EMA at GN’s Update Center, but what this video really features is a even-tempered, logical, and even intellectual support for gaming. From the parent calling for greater parental responsibility, to the children reaction non-violently to violent games (what a shock), to the poster stating, "Been playing GTA since 2004, still haven’t stolen a car," gamers have made their voices heard.
