    NRA spits on the graves of Newtown massacre victims with release of mobile shoot-'em-up app for iPhone, iPad

    National Rifle Association launched free game that could allow children to play target practice and pay to unlock more powerful weapons, including an assault weapon like the one used by Adam Lanza to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.

    Ready, aim, misfire!

    Exactly one month after the Newtown school massacre, the National Rifle Association has launched a free iPhone and iPad shooting game offering kids as young as 4 a chance to fire guns at coffin-shaped targets.

    MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG OUTLINES GUN CONTROL PLAN ONE MONTH AFTER NEWTOWN

    LUPICA: TAKE ACTION ON GUN CONTROL BEFORE MOMENT IS LOST

    The free game “NRA: Practice Range” is offered on iTunes and allows would-be snipers to choose a weapon to fire at an indoor gun range, an outdoor range or for skeet shooting practice.

    Standing up for our right to bear arms is spitting on the criminals we choose to defend ourselves against.

    To even suggest that the NRA doesn't care about those children is a new low from the left. How can anyone take this crap seriously?

    I am for the good guys being armed and sincerely wish that one of the teachers or principal at that school had a gun in their car that they could have retrieved and shot the son of a bitch who was there to murder children. As it was, they were in a gun free zone, so no law abiding citizen chose to break the law. It left them all completely helpless.

    Laws will only affect those who would actually go to the rescue of people in danger. The people who put them in danger don't give a shit about the laws.

    While Hollywood makes movies that look so real when bad guys randomly murder people, you are going to actually pick on a little video game that has symbols. Get real. And the only difference is that one side is liberal and the other side isn't. When you judge by party instead of common sense, you sound like a moron.

    Before you ask, iTunes rated the app.

    Controversial NRA App Rating Is Now 12+

    In a letter to the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre and Apple CEO Tim Cook Tuesday, Sen. Chris Murphy criticized them for “horrible timing” and called on them to change the rating on NRA: Practice Range, an app released Sunday that lets users fire with 9 different firearms, including military-style weapons like M-16s and AK-47s.

    The app was initially rated 4+, according to several media reports, and Murphy
    spokesman Ben Marter, who has a screenshot from this morning showing the rating as 4+.


    The rating is now 12+:
