    Look, I'm all for not having gun control (I prefer regulation). But the NRA is only managing to shoot themselves in the foot.

    The NRA's New Shooting Game Is For Ages Four And Up


    They released a game that shows you how to work and shoot the gun on the app store. And guess what? On the app store, it is advertised for ages 4 and up.


    Dumbasses.

    If this is actually an NRA-sanctioned release, and not sumpin' put out by some outfit surreptitiously trying to undermine the NRA...

    then, yeah... it's yet another example of the NRA being run by absolutely tune-deaf dumb motherfuckers...

    Tell us what's wrong with the Game Nitroz.

    Can you have sex with, then kill a Hooker?

    Can you buy Drugs?

    Can you commit crimes?

    Calm down, stop being afraid of your own shadow and tell us exactly what's wrong with the game.

    iTunes rated it suitable for all ages 4 and up...not the NRA.
    The “NRA: Practice Range” app seeks to provide “one-touch access to NRA network of news, laws, facts, knowledge safety tips, education materials and online resources.”


    The app, among other things, instructs shooters to always “use only the correct ammunition for your gun” and “never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting.”
    The 3D shooting game included in the app lets users take aim in a virtual gun range.



    The game is not violent and does not involve the shooting of human targets — a change of pace from many video games released these days. Because it contains “no objectionable material,” iTunes lists the app as appropriate for everyone over 4-years-old.

    How iTunes ratings are issued:


    When you go to submit your app through iTunes Connect, one of the steps takes you to a ratings matrix that you must fill out. This contains 10 questions listed under “Apple Content Descriptions.” For each of the 10 questions you must say “None”, “Infrequent/Mild”, or “Frequent/Intense.”

    Depending on what answer you give for each of these, the rating of your app in the upper right corner will change. These ratings go from “4+” to “9+” to “12+” to “17+” to “No Rating.”

    Outrage as NRA releases shooting game app for children as young as four - with targets in the shape of COFFINS

    As the nation debates gun control just one month after the Sandy Hook shootings, the NRA has launched a target practice shooting app, which it recommends for children from four years old.

    NRA: Practice Range is described as 'new mobile nerve center' providing access to 'the NRA network of news, laws, facts, knowledge, safety tips, educational materials and online resources.' But the main focus is on the shooting game, where users take aim at coffin-shaped targets, complete with red bullseyes at head- and heart-level. Players can also upgrade to a more powerful weapon by paying $0.99
    .

    This is the same advocacy lobbying group that expended all that energy blaming gun massacres on ... wait for it.... violent video games. :uhoh3:
