I don't know, maybe it's just me...but a target shooting game just doesn't sound like it's a "vicious, violent video game". Kind of sounds more tame than Duck Hunter.

That's not to say I agree with what the NRA said either. Should parents be letting young children play these violent games? Absolutely not. But I don't think video games are any more the reason for actual gun violence than music is responsible for teen suicides or violence. It's quite common for these things to be used as scapegoats instead of analyzing the underlying societal problems surrounding the incidents.

Yes, the NRA is opposition-controlled as well.

NRA chief says group accepts background checks

WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the National Rifle Association says the organization has no problem with tighter background checks of gun purchasers.

But association president David Keene also says too much emphasis has been placed on banning certain firearms.

In an interview on "CBS This Morning" Thursday, Keene argues, quote, "The real question that needs to be addressed is not what we do about guns, but what we do to make our schools safer."

The NRA has come under close scrutiny in the wake of Newtown, Conn., shootings that killed 20 children and six adults.

Keene said officials should focus more attention on a "devastatingly broken mental health system in this country," if they genuinely want to end gun violence.

He said the NRA has been "generally supportive" of stronger background checks.

Big Pharmaceutical drugs however have played a large role in these shootings...

Psych meds linked to 90% of school shootings

Scott Brown becomes first Republican to back federal assault weapons ban

12/20/12

Scott Brown of Massachusetts on Wednesday became the first sitting Republican senator to voice support for a federal assault weapons ban after the Newtown, Conn., shootings.

Brown failed to win re-election in November, however, and won’t be in Congress to vote on gun legislation.

“As a state legislator in Massachusetts, I supported an assault weapons ban thinking other states would follow suit. But unfortunately they have not and innocent people are being killed,” Brown told Massachusetts paper the Republican on Wednesday. “As a result, I support a federal assault weapons ban, perhaps like the legislation we have in Massachusetts."

Brown is the first sitting Republican senator to offer support for a new federal ban—something Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has pledged to introduce in January and something the White House has indicated will have the president’s support.

Several pro-gun-rights Democratic lawmakers, including West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin—who spoke with President Barack Obama to discuss the issue on Tuesday—Virginia Sen. Mark Warner and Rep. Joe Donnelly of Indiana have either expressed concern over the availability of assault weapons or left the door open to a discussion.

It may be what he truly believes but he's also going to run for Gov.
