Why Should You Need A Special License To Run An Arcade?

Adam Thierer notes that Amherst NY has rejected an attempt by a Chuck-E-Cheese get a “game license,” which makes him ask why anyone should need a special license to run a video arcade? He points out that this is basically a money grab by the town, which makes a lot of money off such licensing fees — while also pointing out that if the city’s concerns are legit (they claim worries about little kids playing violent video games) there are numerous ways to deal with that, from content rating systems to (gasp!) parental responsibility.
