Dumb law


Califoarnia Is trying to make the web illegal.
They are trying to pass a law that is to broad and to general and ignores the recent
United States Supreme Court ruling on free speech.
The bill states it will be illegal,
"possess or control matter that depicts a person under 18 years of age engaging in or simulating sexual conduct,"
Dose this mean you can not own a TV because many shows such as Law and order regularly mention
underage prostitution? or You cannot use your internet connection any more because you can't limit the email you receive.
I often get email that depicts under age activity.

Are we heading back to the 1950's when people were afraid to talk about teen sex?

I agree that protection is need, and that underage sex is not something I want to see but writing legislation so general that your average citizen will be breaking the law by simply opening their email is not the answer. Police regularly bust and hold people for anything they can grab at. This law will make it possible for them to bust anyone with a home computer or TV.
