Taking issue with the suggestion by the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre and David Keene that violent video games
might have contributed to several recent mass shootings, a video game developer released a new online game earlier this week that allows players to shoot and kill NRA leaders.
Entitled "Bullet to the Head of the NRA," the game was published on the website Encylopedia Dramatica Forums by user "gizmo01942."
Accompanying the online release, the developer described the game as "a demo where you get to shoot some of the NRA's actual key members in response to them blaming violence on video games."
"I really want to shoot Wayne [LaPierre] in the head in a video game because I'm pissed about how he and others on his side have blamed violence on video games," Gizmo01942 wrote, according to The Daily Caller
. "I wanna see the man wet his pants on television and bitch about being victimized in a video game."
During a controversial speech responding to calls for stricter gun laws in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., the NRA's CEO told reporters, "Isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?"
Gizmo01942 encouraged fellow online gamers to share the game far and wide on other Internet gaming platforms.
"Share this everywhere, especially gun-nut and anti-game websites," Gizmo01942 wrote. "Also see if you can’t send it in to the NRA somehow, like through the feedback on their website or something."
Gizmo01942's interest in developing violent, controversial videogames doesn't stop with killing the NRA's upper echelon. The online gamer reportedly is in the process of developing a new game based on the Newtown shooting itself.
With the working title of "Class Warfare," gizmo01942 reportedly wrote to fellow online gamers, "I need any information you can find on the layout of the school, what it looked like inside and out, how big their classes typically were."
