Tighter restrictions on pornography sold in convenience stores?
PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. — The Pierce County Council approved a measure that could crack down on how pornography is displayed in convenience stores.
Council member Jim McCune is leading the charge to change the regulations. He wants to see pornography hidden away behind clerks or behind locked cases.
McCune says it is too easy for children to see the material and he wants that changed.
“It puts it behind the counter or in a locked section somewhere in the store where it can only be viewed by adults over 18-years-old,” McCune said.
Some parents like Danielle Clark are in favor of the measure.
"I don't want to walk past the aisle and [have] my kid see a naked girl. I just feel like that's really inappropriate," Clark said.
The measure will be voted on next summer.
