The National Rifle Association (NRA) has made it its mission to force the blame of gun violence onto everything except guns. Following the tragic shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School where 20 children and six adults were gunned down, NRA president Wayne LaPierre was quick to place the blame on the influence of violent video games.
I wonder how critical LaPierre will be of the NRA's new smart phone video game, "NRA: Practice Range," which allows players to shoot coffin-shaped targets with red bulls-eyes where a person's heart and head are located.
The 3D shooter, available for download on Apple's App store, is 4+ age rated.
Here's a screenshot:
The NRA insists the game "instills safe and responsible ownership through fun challenges and realistic simulations. It strikes the right balance of gaming and safety education, allowing you to enjoy the most authentic experience possible."
Apparently, authentic includes letting users pay $0.99 extra to unlock an MK11 sniper rifle.
