2. But it is also not true that Hitler banned gun ownership

Any members of the nazi party were more than welcome to have them...

5. I'd be pissed at Apple,

as the Apple Store is what rates games by age, not the producer. Their ratings include “4+” to “9+” to “12+” to “17+” to “No Rating.”

The ratings are based on the following criteria:

- Cartoon or Fantasy Violence
- Realistic Violence
- Sexual Content or Nudity
- Profanity or Crude Humor
- Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References
- Mature/Suggestive Themes
- Simulated Gambling
- Horror/Fear Themes
- Prolonged graphic or sadistic realistic violence
- Graphic sexual content and nudity

There's no blood, no sex, no drug use, no boobies, no gambling, no horror... so yeah, under the Apple Store rating, a shooting gallery game would have a "4+" rating.

Apple needs to change their rating system.

But yeah, the irony of the NRA making a video game if fucking jizzworthty

6. As Joe Madison proposed a month ago show the damn bodies of the shoot children

To end this shit with the NRA and gun nuts.When I posted what he said on his radio show a lot of DU'ERS thought that wasn't a good idea at all.His point was to end the debate to show what a 21 round rifle does to a body and make it a teachable moment like the Tillman case when the mother showed the photos of her sons mutilated body in the casket.Thats when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat after she saw those photos and said to herself ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
