  3. NRA Blames Violent Video Games for Shootings, Releases Violent Video Game in Response

    There have been a lot of people blaming violent video games for gun violence in America, especially in the wake of the tragic Newtown, Connecticut shootings. Chief among them, of course, was the National Rifle Association. In his comments after the shootings, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre blamed several video games that featured guns, like Bulletstorm and Splatterhouse, but left off titles like NRA: Varmint Hunter and NRA: Gun Club. He also failed to mention the new NRA branded iOS game which must have been in development at the time, NRA: Practice Range. The new game is recommended for ages four and up, probably because they don't want kids younger than four to see how much fun super-cool guns can be.

  4. Four Dead in Pennsylvania Shooting Just Hours Before NRA Blamed Violent Video Games for Such Things

    Following a week of radio silence, NRA head Wayne LaPierre finally addressed last week's tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, making his views plain to the nation. The factors behind the shooting the shooting were many, LaPierre claimed, and included the perennial whipping boy of violent video games. In fact, the only thing that could have prevented the shooting was more guns in the hands of armed teachers or guards in schools. LaPierre's case might have carried a little more water if it didn't come just hours after yet another multiple shooting along a stretch of road in Blair County, Pennsylvania that left four people -- including the apparent shooter -- dead and three state troopers injured.

    Sigh. Okay, here it is, people. We pretty much all saw it coming. As soon as it was made known that the National Rifle Association would be holding a press conference today, palms were applied to faces with mutterings of, "Oh jeez, maybe the world really will end." It had been making the rounds that the NRA would likely blame violent video games for the Sandy Hook tragedy, because of course, so everyone prepared for the worst when Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president and CEO of the organization, began speaking. Let's just say, things went about like folks expected it would.

  6. Faulty Planning: Second Japanese Nuclear Plant Could Be Closed Due To Placement On Fault Line

    Earlier this week, we brought you the news that Japan's shut down Tsuruga nuclear plant would likely be shuttered indefinitely, after it was found to lie on an active fault line. Today, it looks like Tsuruga won't be alone in shutting its doors, as inspectors from Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) suggested that the Higashidori nuclear plant may also be situated on an active fault. Pending further inspections next week, the plant may be unable to secure a go-ahead from the country's new nuclear watchdog, making it the second plant likely to be closed down by stricter safety regulations on plant placement.
