A US Supreme Court passed an order preventing California and other US states from ratifying laws that ban the sale of “violent” video games for gamers under the age of 18, on Monday.

The new 7-2 ruling will only let the government regulate the sales of the games. The new ruling, however, won’t affect policies set by private sellers, some of whom ask buyers to show ID proof before retailing a game which is rated “mature.”

Mark Johnson, a First Amendment lawyer and communications lecturer at the University of Kansas, said that the court didn’t find any convincing evidence to deny the sale of M-rated games that may be violent in nature, the Kansas City Star reported.
