Anti-Pinball Law Shuts Down N.Y. Arcade

Posted August 15th, 2010 by Trifith

Lawyers for the town Beacon, NY, found an old law on the books that said pinball machines are against the law. Now, they're using it to shut down a retro arcade museum that has had a few too many noise complaints.

sad day

Thats just about one of the saddest things I've ever heard. Out of all the crime and corruption in the world, while our rights are slowly stripped and the world leaders get richer. Now they are going after the few things in the world that help us take our minds off the other shit. Hopefully Only to their own demise tho. Without pinball we may have to face all the other things they are doing to us. (as much as this sounds sarcastic, it really comes from the heart)

Law not valid

I believe that pinball ban in new york was repealed long ago,so I guess they are going to enforce repealed laws now :P
