I think this is great. Where I'm from, kids are given toy guns regularly...but they are taught as young as 4 to hold those toy guns down, never to point them at someone, and to check the "safety".


Yea and now a kid playing in the street with one of those chrome plastic cap guns would be reported to the police by a "see something say something" fool and would get an entire block locked down by SWAT.
Im so sick of this paranoid government and the people its creating.

You act like young kids don't already have access to violent video games; like no 4 year old out there has ever watched their older brother mow people down on Grand Theft Auto.

This game appears to be completely non-violent & offer young people responsible education & exposure to firearms in case they ever accidentally find the real one in daddy's sock drawer (which should probably have been in a safe...but unfortunately in this country that's not the reality).

This is probably actually a positive thing compared to the alternative.

The point is that the NRA claim that violent video games (specifically the first person shooter genre) as one of the main contributors of a violent society, one which encourages its people to minimize the real consequences of violence, immured to it by the supposed drip drip effect of such games.

NRA Loon Wayne LaPierre blames 'Video Games' for gun violence. Thats the name of the video folks


..But then, the NRA bring out a first person shooter which contains apparent 'critical safety and training tips' sort of like Counter Strike educates players about the real purpose of guns. Neither of them particularly relevant for children as young as 4.

The NRA Game

Its a basic game with core elements of a first person shooter. The limiting factor to anyone who knows about video games is the budget. Here, its clearly lacking, but it does try to make the most out of what is available.

With bigger budgets, it can get more realistic but its essentially the same thing. Call of Duty Time Trial

now, do I have anything against guns in video games? First person shooters, violence in video games even? No of course not!

But it needs pointing out the hypocrisy of the NRA and their attempt to divert the real issue which is guns in too many people's hands and they know it well.

While many are quick to jump on the NRA Bash Wagon. It has become evident that the NRA, more specifically, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION, may not have even developed this app. in the first place. The App world is an open and virtually unregulated realm where copyright laws are skirted on technicalities.


But the New York Times’ Bill Keller investigated the app, and found an expert on counterfeit web content who is convinced scammers are behind it:

I’ve been in touch with Reggie Pierce, the CEO of a company called IP Lasso, which chases down counterfeit web content on behalf of brand-name clients. The National Rifle Association is not a client, but the folks at IP Lasso saw the news splash and decided something felt “a little fishy,” Pierce said. And so they ran some diagnostics. For one thing, nothing in the iTunes listing of the Target Practice app named the National Rifle Association. It just uses the initials – NRA – which Pierce said is a common way counterfeiters get around trademarks. Other NRA-related apps use the full name of the organization

They are skirting around the law by simply calling it NRA NOT the National Rifle Association. Once again!! everyone is so quick to jump and attack without knowing all of the facts.!! CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC are jumping on this via multiple programming outlets.

you really have to sort out your society somehow

It's called freedom.

When you are not used to having it, it can seem really strange.... looking at it from the outside.



The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

Obviously, the limit has been breached.

Waht makes you say I "act" in that manner?

It does not offer them exposure to tfirearms at all. It is a game on a computer - no actual firearms are involved.


in case they ever accidentally find the real one in daddy's sock drawer (which should probably have been in a safe...but unfortunately in this country that's not the reality).


In which case they will not know hat it does because het computer they are playing in feels and handles nothing like a gun, does not actually have bullets, does not actually have a safety.


This is probably actually a positive thing compared to the alternative.


how is this better than the NRA not releasing the game?

This'll be a little off topic, but this is just what they wanted... "they" being TPTB.

With Sandy Hook they're going get the 2nd, the 1st, and the 4th Amendments trampled into obscurity.

It was the games they wail.

It was the guns they cry. We need to know what is going on so it doesn't happen again so you can't have guns, your games/music/movies must meet our Ministry of Vice & Virtue's guidelines & you have no right to privacy ever again.

Just watch, power grab deluxe.

Now back more on topic...

As stated before, this game isn't glorifying violence against humans.

More off topic... sorry mods.

Did anyone ever notice that the monsters who shoot up places are typically from affluent backgrounds? They never really "knew" want as they typically had all their wants met? Anyone who has taken a psychiatry course knows what happens when you have no "wants", when all your whims are met. The shootings are the end result of all these little princes being made.

It isn't the games or the guns.

How is a game about shooting at a gun range equivalent to counter strike? How is it even comparable? Oooh, they both involve guns... eviiilll guns! It also gives safety tips. No one is suggesting it's equivalent to taking a safety course, but at least it tells you the basic rules about gun safety and it's not about shooting people, which is more than can be said of a "first person shooter." It also wasn't "designed" for "children as young as 4." Read the thread.


But it needs pointing out the hypocrisy of the NRA

If you think shooting guns at a gun range is "violent," then you're misguided and you do not understand responsible gun ownership.

Nothing wrong with an app teaching gun safety. You seem to be reaching for the "look at my d-bagness " straws. Of course the NRA will pomote gun safety.

Well...

It's better than the mainstream media.

That teaches all the sheep to wet themselves and soil their little sheep pants whenever they see a gun.

Back when this country was founded, EVERYONE knew how to use a gun at at young age. Their very lives depended on it. It fed them, and protected them from raiders. Of the private variety and the ones from the Crown.

Now we depend on Monsanto, factory farming to keep us alive. And they wonder why we are such a sick, sick nation. Spending more than any other country on healthcare, and getting sicker all the time.

Except for those of us who have seen the light and grow their own stuff, buy or trade from a co-op for vegitables, and grassfed beef. And don't tell me it's too expensive. I pay no more than my grandparents did in 1940. We're just conditioned to pay a very small % of our income for food. Cheap factory farming did that for us.

Funny how some are using their freedom of speech to propose enslaving us again by telling us what we can own, what we can shoot, what we can eat, and what we can say and what we "need".

It's also funny how REAL FOOD like raw milk is restricted like it's heroine some places. The feds bust in like the're raiding a crackhouse. Guns drawn. Cant' have healthy food. The little sheep might start thinking for themsleves.

*sigh* Sorry for the rant that went off topic. I'm just disgusted tonight. I'm 52 and I see what has happened to the US.
