A Seattle-area company has removed a school shooting video game from its online platform following widespread backlash, the AP reports. The “Active Shooter” video game was pulled days before it was to be released on the video game marketplace Steam.
The game allows players to re-create school shootings by stalking school hallways and racking up kills. It was condemned by many, including the parents of students killed during the February school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
You don’t need to be a parent of any particular kind to know this is an asinine idea.
