Forbes recently published an article expressing that Republicans on The Hill should be in favor of allowing internet gaming to clearly be legal. I fully support this.
The freedom to make this adult decision should be left to us as adults, and not to the government. Putting in place clear and concise law that defined the parameters of online gaming would also help make sure that only those of legal age are participating in the gaming.
Such laws would also put in place safe and realistic regulations to guarantee that all players are not being cheated by a shady offshore company. While many of the companies currently offering internet gaming from offshore sites are perfectly legitimate, the regulations that would come with clear legalization of it would force the companies that do act shady out of the picture.
