NRA blames flash game for real life violence

Ten Year Old Flash Game ‘Kindergarten Killer’ Is NRA Scapegoat For Video Game Violence

Back in the 1990s, we had controversy start to rise over video game violence when the video game “Mortal Kombat” was slated for release on home consoles. The game depicted life-like sprites of real people losing what looked like more blood than the human body is capable of even holding.

Thus begun the era of blaming video games for today’s violence, and every time someone gets out of hand with a gun, the games get the accusing finger. Personally, I prefer it virtual and kept out of real life.

Now gun violence has reared its ugly head once again with Connecticut’s Newtown massacre and various copycat crimes across the country. And which video game gets the accusing finger now?

The NRA is blaming the ten year old flash game “Kindergarten Killer”, a gruesome shooter that has you hunting down children, reports Buzzfeed.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said:

“There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people. Here’s one, it’s called ‘Kindergarten Killers’.”

The free online program is a first-person shooter game that instructs players to “shoot the kids quickly before they shoot you.”

The game has you playing the role of a crazed janitor armed with a shotgun, and it instructs you:

“You begin your killing spree, first killing the kindergarten teacher, but then for some unknown reason the kids pull out their own guns! They’re outnumbering you, so kill them off and get out of the halls quick!”
