    NEW JERSEY — Democratic Assembly members Linda Stender and Jon Bramnick said Monday that they want to make it illegal for someone to sell or rent those types of games to anyone under age 18. Violators could face a $50 fine for their first offense, $100 for their second and $250 for subsequent offenses, according to their measure that was announced Monday but has not been formally introduced. Business owners also would have to post a sign explaining the video game rating system created by a national industry board. Video games are rated as EC for early childhood, E for everyone, T for teen, M for mature, AO for adults only, and RP for rating pending.
