The Connecticut elementary school tragedy that occurred in December 2012 is indeed tragic, however, it has caused quite a stir among weapon and video game/movie/television enthusiasts on which outlet is to blame for violent behavior. From the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) point of view, the organization blames violent video games such as Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto for facilitating, promoting, and rewarding violent behavior.
Well, general public, let us present to you, cold, burning, irony. The NRA has released NRA: Practice Range for the iOS, which contains 9 various firearms, a few virtual shooting ranges, and a wealth of information about the NRA organization. The game even has a bit of DLC, as you can purchase a virtual MK11 Sniper Rifle for 99 cents USD.
Though the NRA claims that the game is meant to promote safe firearms use (even that’s ironic), it allows you to hunt and shoot coffin-shaped targets with marks on the head and heart.
To the NRA, let me present to you, Tactical Facepalm, because obviously, a facepalm has more tactics than your irony.
