The National Rifle Association released a first-person video game Sunday in which the player shoots at assorted targets.

Called the " NRA: Practice Range," the free game is available on iTunes for pad and phone devices.

The release of the game comes weeks after NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said games involving violence and guns are contributing factors to the actual violence in the country.
