TRENTON - A state assemblyman from Monmouth County is trying to push through a bill that would make it illegal for minors to purchase violent video games on their own.

Under the proposed law headed by Assemblyman Sean Kean (R), retailers would face harsh fines for selling violent games with mature ratings to anyone under the age of 18.

Kean hopes that the attention given to the gun control issue after recent massing killings will help the bill pass.
