If you have little kids around the house the NRA has a deal for you.
According to the New York Daily News the NRA is commemorating the one month anniversary of the Sandy Hook shootings by releasing a new IPhone app.  The app allows players to simulate firing an AK-47 assault rifle at targets that look like coffins.
Here’s the best part…the NRA says that the app is appropriate for ages 4 and up.
This is sick!
At a time when the country is up in arms about the proliferation of gun violence, the NRA comes out with a game that encourages 4 year olds to experience the excitement of firing off an AK-47.
We understand that it is ultimately the parents responsibility to determine what is and is not appropriate material for their children to watch…but c’mon!  Seriously!!!
A Washington Post/ABC NEWS poll released today shows that 58% of Americans approve of a ban on assault weapons… 88% support background checks on gun shows…and 65% support a ban on high capacity magazines.
Make no mistake…a lot of the people that are speaking out in support of these restrictions are law abiding gun owners and card carrying members of the NRA.  They understand that these restrictions are not a threat to the second amendment.  And they should not be vilified over the reckless behavior carried out at the top of the NRA food chain.
NRA Director Wayne LaPierre and President David Keene do not represent the majority of NRA members.  They have allowed the extremists and the survivalists to set their message.  And more importantly, they have elected to dance to the beat of the powerful gun manufactures that are making millions over the Sandy Hook tragedy.
The NRA leadership does not care about gun safety or about the safety of our children.  All they care about is selling more guns.  LaPierre’s post Newtown press conference and this recent IPhone app make that fact abundantly clear.
