Blago impersonating Lieberman on video games

From CNET (David Becker), not "Chief of Naval Education and Training":
Two Illinois legislators introduced a proposal on Monday to ban sales of violent and sexually explicit games to children, the latest in a series of efforts to crack down on gory games.

State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia and Sen. Deanna Demuzio, both Democrats, sponsored legislation authored by Gov. Rod Blagojevich that would subject retailers to a fine of up to $5,000 and a year in prison if they sell a restricted game to anyone under 18.
Is this the best way to use the Governor's office to reduce crime? Or is this about political grandstanding?
