    NRA releases 'Practice Range' shooting app -- after blaming video games for violence - U.S. News

    Don't know if anyone else has posted about this story, but I thought I would throw it out there.

    Basically, NBC news is ripping on the NRA for coming out with a shooting app after blaming violence in video games for the mass shootings. The thing is, the app is just a simulation of shooting paper targets (not of peoples shapes or faces) at a shooting range.

    So what I get from that is that they think the mere act of shooting a gun is violent.

    Read the article.

    In the comments section someone says that the NRA didn't do the age rating either, the itunes guys decided it was OK for 4 and up. Of course they make it sound like the NRA wants four year old shooting guns. So slanted it isn't even funny.

    I got all confused when I read the title "NBC news thinks" seamed completely impossible to me.

    Geez. This is like nursery school compared to the truly violent video games. How pathetic.

    Wow, what a bunch of morrons... So are they going to limit my call of duty game to revolvers and bolt action rifles?

    Both my 1st and 3rd grade girls like the shoot/no-shoot app the WDFW has on their hunter safety online course. They, of course, are blood thirsty killers. Oh wait, its time for ballet lessons.
