NRA Releases New Shooting Range Game for Ages 4 and Up
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has just released an application in the iOS App Store for people ages four and older to practice their aiming with multiple firearms. Dubbed NRA Shooting Range, you can grab the new application for free from the App Store starting today (link) Ė the application supports iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The game puts a very heavy emphasis on guns, but thatís no surprise considering where the app came from. It comes packed with gun news, information about the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, links to gun laws, information about hunting seasons, information about gun safety, and information about gun legislation.
Once you get past all of the boring stuff, the application is also a 3-D shooting range game that comes with three shooting modes Ė indoor range, outdoor range, and skeet shooting. You can also pick from nine different firearms, analog or gyroscope controls, and three different game difficulties.
NRA Shooting Range comes with Game Center integration, so youíll be able to compete with your friends, however it doesnít have support for the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5Gís new four-inch display, which is quite saddening.
The game can be used to pass time or to learn something new about all there is to know about guns. That being said, itís not a bad app. Check it out.

Why is MMI going political? This whole recent gun debate is absurd political trash talk. The actions of one crazy person does not make gun owners criminals. The kid who shot up the school was not a member of the NRA. Taking guns away from responsible adults will not decrease crime, and exploiting a school shooting for political gain is shameful.

But give me a good reason why any person needs a semi automatic assault style weapon with a 100 round magazine? Why does America by far have the highest number of gun deaths when the rest of the world listens to the same music, watches the same movies and plays the same video games? Do we have more crazy people or could it be we have more access to guns? I have my concealed carry and own fire arms but your attitude and those of the NRA are no longer acceptable. Saying doing one thing will not result in another is dumb. You are not allowed to own a machine gun, something you could own in 1930's and how many machine gun deaths have we had sense? The 2nd amendment is not absolute obviously and We The People can decide its time, for the safety of ALL Americans, to limit the ability to own these weapons. I'm not saying outlaw them and take them away. I say make a person register them and have a special permit for a person to own them similar to the one you need to be able to own a machine gun. Track ammo sales, we track sudafed but not bullets? Have national healthcare for all which includes mental health coverage. Lots of things can be done but saying "taking away guns won't do anything" is stupid and short sighted.
As far as it being on MMI why not? It's an app.

For example..."The actions of one crazy person does not make gun owners criminals"....No it does not, no one ever said it did. But by simply owning a gun...are they not responsible in some way, or in some part no matter how small? Not responsible as in "this is all your fault", but responsible in the sense that the reality of everyone owning guns, guns being everywhere, guns being so common that it is impossible to keep them ALL out of the wrong hands...is that people that should not have a gun, will be able to get a gun. Maybe not every time, maybe not even a small amount of the time. It could happen only once...and if someone you love just so happened to be involved...just that one time... and lost their life...Would you really be on here today posting these thoughtless comments?
It truly saddens me that people's unbelievably selfish love for guns...yes, guns...Is more powerful than their love for their fellow man, their fellow neighbor. These people value their freedom to own a gun, more than they value assuring people's safety, or even ATTEMPTING to assure people's safety. And their reasoning is "IT'S NOT OUR FAULT! WE DIDN'T PULL THE TRIGGER! DON'T BLAME ME!" Instead of saying "You know what...I LOVE my guns...But if guns being freely accessible across the nation endangers even one life...I am willing to sacrifice a hobby of mine.El Zurdo

Capacity, speed of delivery, speed of reload. I think those are enough. Show me a semi automatic hunting rifle that can accept a 30 round or 100 magazine and I'll show you another weapon that should be controlled.

The standard issue battle rifle during WWII held 8 rounds with an en bloc clip to reload. It didn't have a detachable magazine or a pistol grip or a folding stock or a flash suppressor and in fact wasn't covered under the first assault weapons ban.
The reload took about 5 seconds. Ask all the dead Germans how they felt about being shot by a non-assault rifle....
At columbine Eric Harris used a 9MM rifle with 10 round mags. He used 13 mags. Whats the difference between 5 30 round mags versus 10 13 rounders? It takes a competent shooter less than a second to change mags.
Get rid of all mags?
The world record holder for a revolver can shoot 12 shots with in 3 seconds, including a reload. Now normal people can't touch that, but with practice can easily do it within 10 - 15 seconds. which is about 1 shot per second. About the speed of aimed shots from an AR-15.
More people are killed by car every year than by firearms.
It truly saddens me that people's unbelievably selfish love for cars...yes, cars...Is more powerful than their love for their fellow man, their fellow neighbor. These people value their freedom to own a cars, more than they value assuring people's safety, or even ATTEMPTING to assure people's safety. And their reasoning is "IT'S NOT OUR FAULT! WE DIDN'T DRIVE THE CAR! DON'T BLAME ME!" Instead of saying "You know what...I LOVE my cars...But if cars being freely accessible across the nation endangers even one life...I am willing to sacrifice a hobby of mine.
Yeah, I didn't think so.

Sweet i am downloading right now thanks NRA for protecting our Amendments.

Are you really trying to compare guns to cars? Do you hear yourself? Do you realize how desperate and crazed your argument is? Collecting and or shooting guns is a hobby, it is not a necessity. We have trained men and women specifically trained to carry and shoot guns in our Country. Driving to work in the morning, or going to buy groceries, or driving someone to the doctor...is a necessity. Do you know what the difference is? I believe you do, but your passion for guns, and your selfish desire to not give up anything for the betterment of society, clouds your thinking.
Why can't people like you just admit the simple fact is that they love guns. So much so in fact, that the consequential loss of human life (no matter how often, or how awful) is a acceptable price to pay to continue to experience the joys of owning a gun. Is this statement incorrect? What could possibly happen that would be worse than what happened at Sandy Hook? And make you realize "Hmm, you know what...I think guns could just possibly be partly responsible for killing all of those innocent people"....NOTHING. You will never admit this. It all just goes to highlight people like you...just don't care.El Zurdo

Britain took guns away & all it did was make the crime rate go up. And guess what? People are still killing! Knife deaths are at an all time high!
Mexico banned guns & it is now the most murder ridden country and guess what? The bad guys still have guns!!!
How come everyone that mentions the mass murders as a reason to enact stricter gun laws neglects the fact that many of these twisted mental cases obtain their guns illegally?
Also why are so many Americans so easy to forget the very reason our fathers gave us the "right to bear arms"???
HELLO PEOPLE it's to protect us against tyrannical & totalitarian governments!!! Wake UP! Hittler talked about gun control all the time & even enacted it to some extents.
The way I see it, they wanna take our guns away then it should be a completely level playing field! NOBODY should have them! Not the police, the FBI, secret service, or any political figures. I Mean NOBODY! But the cowards like the Dea, FBI & CIA will NEVER give up their guns & clowns like piers Morgan will just hide behind a team of security all armed with guns that protect him. But only he's allowed protection....mod/edit links removed.

I'm going to make sure my children and children's children play this game and learn how cool, fun, and appropriate guns are. Thanks for the healthy dose of brainwashing NRA! I live to serve your perpetual, antagonization-fueled business.

Turn in your concealed license and start up knitting!
To the rest of u anti-gun proponents, criminals will always have guns; YOU can't stop that. So, enjoy being helpless while ur getting robbed; maybe u can negotiate w/ them and come to a civil understanding!
FYI, here's my newest toy! Semi-Auto 12g Shotgun!!! Guess what, I'm not scared of bad guys so u all can suck it!
