An online video game that allows players to reenact the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting has been posted online.
The game is called "The Slaying of Sandy Hook Elementary"
It allows players to retrace the footsteps of the alleged shooter as he picks up a Glock handgun and fires bullets at the body of his mother asleep on her bed.
After being encouraged by the game to “shoot again” and “just make sure” and “one last time,” players are instructed to retrieve an AR-15 and proceed to the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
From here, players can engage in a shooting spree in a school. The first scene the shooter breaks through some glass and crawls into the school.
The player then enters multiple classrooms one at a time and attempts to shoot as many people as he can before they escape.
Then the shooter returns to the hallway as heavy metal music begins playing.
Then a graphic appears at the bottom of the screen as the 11 minute timer expires. It says, "The Police Have Arrived". The gunman drops the AR-15 and grabs a handgun. The player is instructed to press the "s" button as the shooter commits suicide with one shot to the head.
Strangely, players are encouraged in the game's credits to contact their state governor and representatives to push for gun-control legislation.
In an audio message in the game's credits, the game's creator, Ryan Jake Lambourn, who admits he “rarely follows the news,” said "Here we are nearly a year after the Sandy Hook shootings in which 26 people were killed and absolutely nothing positive has come out of it."
Lambourn, a native of Houston who now resides in Australia, was also the creator of the video game, entitled "VTech Ramage", which allowed gamers to reenact the school shooting that took place on April 16, 2007, on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
Is this game made to glorify violence or is this an honest platform from the creator to assist in gun control?
You decide for yourself. The game can be found HERE.
