I'm all for calling out ignorance and hypocrisy, but their game is in no way violent. Seems to be about as violent as popping soup cans with a pellet gun.

Agreed. It's an educational game, at best. Might as well say how hypocritical Math Blaster is, you guys.

Well, if Activision, EA, Sony and Microsoft would stop making Killing Simulators, the world would be a happy place with no violence.

Same reason there are round targets. It's an educational app attempting to show a realistic shooting range.

NRA is a business. Every time there is a school shooting, they see dollar signs and get happy
