The National Rifle Association has released a new shooter game for that is suggested for kids as young as four.
NRA: Practice Range was released as an app in the iTunes store on Sunday, just a month after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"How dumb can you get? How insulting can you be? They are tone deaf. You can quote me on any of that," said Gov. Dannel Malloy on Tuesday.
The app allows users to shoot at targets and does not include the ability to shoot at live subjects. According to the iTunes description, the app "offers a 3D shooting game that instills safe and responsible ownership through fun challenges and realistic simulations." The app also provides firearm safety tips and access to NRA news and details on gun laws by state.
"The NRA seems intent on continuing to insult the families of the victims of Sandy Hook," said Sen. Chris Murphy in a statement. "How could they think it was a good idea to use the one month anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook to release a game that teaches four year olds to shoot assault weapons? No matter what outrageous new tool they use, the NRA cannot make a straight-faced case that sport shooters need military-style weapons to enjoy their hobby."
Users who download the free app are provided with an M9 handgun, but can upgrade to an AK47 for $0.99, according to NBCNews.com.

I didn't think there would be. Civil war is coming. I don't see any way to avoid it. Thanks 'RATS! Great job!
Looks like fun!
The app is good. Takes a while to master. And that politician - is just so much BULL
Shooting simulated paper targets is an outrage... Shooting at ever more realistic looking people in FPS games is ok though.. At least to the fascists with an agenda.
How many parents let their 4-year-olds surf the web and download itunes apps?
And who do these idiots think will be the soldiers who defend our country in the next 20 years? It will be all these children who, thankfully, the NRA has helped to train to be expert marksmen and responsible gun handlers.
These same people would trip over themselves getting “how to wear a condom” apps for elementary school kids.
Emotional hoplophobes. What else is new?
Send the bastard whore an e-mail:
They are, however, very happy with the one in which NRA staff and members are the targets.
According to this article this game is not from the NRA at all.....
Fun app. But mine keeps making me aim more to the right, maybe a bug? Each time I shoot I have to turn the iPad a little more right. So I’m only giving it 4 stars.
Is this the game identified on an earlier thread that it was NOT from National Rifle Assn., but instead was a fakeroo from only identified as “NRA”?
Looks like more dirty tricks for political purposes by the dems.
Whether they know it or give a damn, the left is pushing America over the edge.
