Retailers who sell the latest "Call of Duty" video game to minors would face big fines under a law being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The high court heard arguments Tuesday morning over a ban that would make it illegal for retailers to sell or rent violent video games to anyone under the age of 18.

Retailers would face fines of up to $1,000 for each game sold.

Senator Leland Yee from San Francisco sponsored the law, but some justices suggest that it might encroach on first amendment rights.
