Get 'em when they're young

Despite slamming the videogame industry -- and the nature of free expression -- for promoting gun violence, the National Rifle Association isn't afraid to double down on its hypocrisy. The gun advocacy group has released a shooting game for iOS, aimed at kids aged four and above.

NRA: Practice Range allows you to select and shoot a number of firearms at virtual targets, and provides safety and education tips alongside an overwhelming sense that the NRA is doing this on purpose to get a rise out of people. Up to nine guns can be taken out and fired, using either gyroscopic or analog controls. 

"NRA: Practice Range puts the NRA’s broad scope of resources in the palm of your hand," boasts the game summary, "with 2nd Amendment newsfeeds, gun law information centers and educational materials that you can access anywhere, anytime."

It's totally free, so there's absolutely no excuse not to introduce your child to the alluring world of lethal firearms! God bless America!
