I am certainly happy they are using my membership dues for important projects.

I spoke too soon and apologize. The OP did not mention safety training and I took what I believed the subject to be for granted. I do not own a Ipod or Ipad and have not seen the game in person.

I downloaded it. It teaches firearm safety. I'm all for my dues going to promote firearm safety geared to youngsters.

Yes, it is a product that supports firearm safety... I must say I support this kind of product... Release timing could have been better but it is what it is..

Timing is horrendous, what's with the target shapes? Media is eating this up stating the look like coffins. I'm sure that wasn't the intent but do they have a public relations group?? Stupid in my opinion...

Yeah the same idiots bitching about the NRA program would throw a hissy fit if they tried to ban Grand Theft Auto or simular programs.

Where's the outrage over "Bullet to the Head of the NRA"? I guess shooting a 2nd Amendment advocate is okay.

Even if you arent into games it's an easy way to keep links to the NRA pages

Have not seen it,I do not even own a cell phone.
I do support education of all young folks on the fundementals of firearm safety.
Even for folks who refuse to have a gun in their home,if your kid is visiting friends,or later,if someone gets a firearm out at a party,a young person with a strong sense of what is not OK can have the confidence to either say "Whoa" or leave.

Its ironic that the same folks who do not want their kids to have a basic knowledge of firearms safety are all in favor of them learning all about sex in school,and,conversely,some who would teach firearms safety are against any sex ed in school.

I'm in favor of them learning how to stay safe and take care of themselves.

In either case,that can be done without promoting anything if those teaching can keep their own agendas in check.
