Video game simulating active school shooter to be released next week. But, keep blaming the NRA.

The video game “Active Shooter” is drawing plenty of outrage as it allows players to simulate a school shooting.

Talk about imitating reality, in the wake of a growing number of shootings in the US where students are being killed, the “dynamic S.W.A. T. simulator” game is expected to be released on June 6, Fox News reported — it will be available on Steam, a digital distribution platform developed by Valve.

Perhaps even more egregious, the game gives you the choice of being the S.W.A.T team member or the shooter murdering innocent children.

“Pick your role, gear up and fight or destroy!” the game description reads.

“Be the good guy or the bad guy. The choice is yours! Only in ‘Active Shooter’, you will be able to pick the role of an Elite S.W.A.T member or the actual shooter. Lead your team, extract civilians and neutralize the shooter,” the description added

A statement in response to the blow back was included, saying the game “does not promote any sort of violence, especially any [sort] of a mass shooting.”

More than one social media users noted the irony of liberals blaming the NRA for school shootings:

Ryan Petty, whose 14-year-old daughter, Alaina JoAnn Petty, was killed in February during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, voiced his outrage.

“Despicable. Let know games depicting ‘active shooter’ scenarios in schools, where players shoot civilians, students & law enforcement are unacceptable,” he tweeted.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the game from Twitter:

Petitions are reportedly being circulated demanding  that the “game” be removed.
