NRA Releases Free Target App For Ages 4 And Up

At least they waited a whole month after the Newtown tragedy.

The NRA has been highly critical of the video game industry following the elementary school shooting in Newtown that left 26 dead and sparked a national debate about guns and school safety.

“NRA: Practice Range,” available free in the iTunes app store, allows players to shoot at coffin-shaped targets in indoor or outdoor settings. For $.99 extra, players can upgrade their gun to a pistol grip Mossberg or a semi-automatic sniper rifle.

The game says it is a licensed product of the NRA, but the gun lobby did not return multiple requests for comment from Yahoo News asking to confirm that the game is indeed theirs.

So, according to the NRA, video games: bad; iTunes Practice Range: Good.
