    You guys do realize that this was in the pipeline long before the Sandy shooting. It takes months to get an app released to the app store.

    Have we given in totally to the gun banners point of view? There is nothing wrong with that app. How much time has to pass before it is OK for us to start talk about or particiapte in shooting sports. Sandy Hook was tragic but all life did not end. We need to start standing up for our side!

    I don't play games and I just downloaded it. Whether I agree on this or not I back up the NRA. Downloads will be a statistic people look at.

    Thanks, NRA, for making the gap between "gun owners" and "gun nuts" a little smaller.

    If it werent for all thats going on Id only be mad that its not available on android systems. But just poor timing. I thoughtat first they might have done it to try and show that semi auto rifles had sporting purposes, but that doesnt work on people who think they already know better and are convinced of it

    Well hes right. At least in that the other side of the argument cant make the distinction. Gun control groups on FB are already using it....saying that the game has targets "shaped like child coffins"

    THE NRA is full of "inside the beltway" types who have no private market experience in marketing/brand development or technology, let alone social media. They are no different than the other inside the beltway types who tried to get the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) through Congress and had their asses handed to them by Google/Facebook/Amazon and others who quickly ginned up the social media support to get 5 million names on a petition against SOPA in less than three weeks. While the NRA certainly needs skilled lobbyists, I think it has greater need for smart marketers and lawyers.

    Then where's the outrage over the "shoot the NRA's president" video game.

    Don't play the anti's game! Give it back to them!

    First off, the targets in the app aren't shaped like coffins...feel free to show me one coffin that is shaped exactly like the target.

    Second, this is a teaching app that is designed to educate the user through the use of a virtual environment which mimics actual real life environments and normal peaceful activities which are performed daily by numerous law abiding citizens. It is not a video game which depicts violence.

    Third, anyone who thinks there is a wrong time to release new educational material to the public seriously needs to decide if you support the release of educational material when it becomes available or if you support the withholding of educational material from the general public.

    This was not developed by the NRA, this is not totally endorced by the NRA, the NRA only allowed the usage of their name. Apple decides the rating, Apple decided the release, and Apple alone approves the app for release.
