The lights are on
Hey, remember last month when that unspeakably horrible event happened in Connecticut? Well, the NRA apparently doesn't. You see, the organization's Wayne LaPierre placed much of the blame on violent video games, singling out titles like Bulletstorm, Splatterhouse, and Mortal Kombat in a reactionary press conference. Now, less than a month after the shooting in Newtown, the company has released a shooting game for iOS.
NRA: Practice Range is now available for iPhone and iPad, and offers virtual shooting ranges, nine firearms, and all sorts of NRA information and resources. We've reached out to publisher Medl Mobile to see if they have any comment regarding the apparent hypocrisy, and will update this story if they get back to us with an official word.

If they were attacking/blaming games in general I could see that. January sure sucks for news desks...
Pfft, this is the best stuff I've seen all day.
The irony, it BURNS!!!
Simple solution: challenge Wayne LaPierre to a virtual gun duel on IoS, high noon. See which opponent become mentally wrecked first after winning.
