When I heard the news, I was surprised. A video game maker has decided a shooting game that allows the player to be a school’s “active shooter” is a good idea and a money maker. It may very well be.
I would normally pause at the insensitivity of such a thing in our current environment, but the snowflake crowed beat me to it and forced me to have sympathy for the game maker.
You see, aggrieved parents of Parkland have asked the company to not release the game. And I get it. The wounds are still fresh.
And as insensitive as the game maker may be, I began thinking how do we turn it on them? Rather than a snowflake demand to not produce or sell, why not use the game to our kids’ advantage.
Kids are all about gaming, and using one to train them on an active shooter scenario may just be the lesson they will remember that saves lives!
How about some education instead of a snow job?
