Just a month after Newtown shocked America, an NRA shooting game has been released thanks to a brand new app.
The shooting game, called “NRA: Practice Range,” allows gamers to head to the gun range, where they can practice their gun slinging skills by taking aim and shooting at targets.
The targets appear to resemble coffins, with the head and heart areas of the body identified with big, red dots.
The new NRA shooting app is being promoted by the National Rifle Association as being a “network of news, laws, facts, knowledge, safety tips, educational materials and online resource.”
According to Think Progress, the game also “[i]nstills safe and responsible ownership through fun challenges and realistic simulations.”
Whether or not you can instill safety and responsibility when playing a game of any sort is certainly up for debate, especially by gun detractors across the country.
Like most apps, the NRA shooting game allows you to upgrade your weaponry when you spend real money on your virtual arsenal.
Do you think this is a ploy by the NRA to get back into the good graces of people across America? Voice your thoughts below.
