Forgive me, but this still seems like a non sequitur. Per your own source, the law doesn't appear to do anything more than...

a California law that would make it illegal to sell violent videogames to children...
Nothing there about "making it illegal for adults to buy violent videogames then turn around and give them to kids".

As a parent, I see nothing wrong with this. I don't allow my kids to play M games so it would really piss me off to learn that they could circumvent me and purchase the games themselves.
