US Vice-President Joe Biden is expected to make recommendations on gun control to the White House on Tuesday. President Barack Obama has announced he will lay out his plans for tackling gun violence later this week. There have been calls for gun law reform after 26 children and teachers died at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
NRA: Practice Range, billed as the NRA's "new mobile nerve center," says it "strikes the right balance of gaming and education" and delivers a "one-touch access to the NRA network of news, laws, facts, knowledge, safety tips, educational materials and online resources". The player can practise shooting at targets, including some in the shape of coffins, and has a choice of nine firearms. Some of the guns can be upgraded for $0.99 (£0.62) each. The game is available in the UK.
