Maybe 13 is too young

Not everyone is happy about the video rental policy in MA, Story Here.

An Easthampton woman whose 13-year-old son recently came home from the library with several R-rated videos is mounting a campaign to give parents a say in what their children can check out from the library\'s collection.
Bennett, however, was not so happy. She and \"quite a few\" supporters plan to petition the library\'s executive board at its monthly meeting March 13 to set up a card system for library patrons under the age of 17 that will allow parents to indicate whether their children should be allowed to check out R-rated videos.

\"I\'m not (trying to) take away anybody\'s freedom,\" Bennett said yesterday, stressing that it should be up to parents to decide for their own children under age 17 whether they should have access to films that the movie industry has deemed suitable only for those aged 17 and above.
