Victim’s relative: “It’s absolutely disgusting that somebody thinks this is funny”

A sick online ‘game’ allows players to slaughter children with an AR-15 in a recreation of the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 2012, before preaching pro gun control messages at them.

Entitled The Slaying of Sandy Hook, the crude and disgusting creation simulates killer Adam Lanza’s actions at the Elementary School, where he murdered 20 children and six teachers last year. It also depicts Lanza killing his own mother at home, and finally committing suicide after his shooting spree.

Gun-control wacko makes disgusting Sandy Hook Elementary shoot-em-up video game

During the game play, the sound of gunfire and bullets hitting bodies rings out as stick figure children attempt to run away from the shooter, or fall to the ground in fear. The user is supposed to kill as many as he or she can.

A timer ticks down to zero, representing the arrival of police at the school. The game is then over as the Lanza figure shoots himself.

Players are then shown a kill ratio screen detailing how many people were murdered and wounded, and how many managed to survive by either hiding or playing dead. The numbers are then compared to the actual body count at Sandy Hook.

Next, users are encouraged to play the game in “gun control mode”, and challenged to kill as many as they can using a sword instead of a gun.

Several sarcastic messages appear as the mode depicts a locked gun safe (which many responsible gun owners have anyway) meaning that the Lanza character cannot access the firearms.

As the credits role at the end of the game, there are several links to pro gun control websites and to elected representatives’ contact details. The creator of the nauseating piece, an Australian named Ryan Jake Lambourn, has stated via his twitter account that the purpose is to cause outrage and spread a pro gun control message.

A relative of a teacher who died protecting children from gunfire at Sandy Hook is outraged at the sick creation.

“It’s absolutely disgusting that somebody thinks this is funny,” Donna Soto told Hearst Connecticut Newspapers Tuesday.

“We’re all suffering. All the families are suffering. We’re coming up on December. My daughter’s birthday just passed.” added Soto, whose daughter received a posthumous Presidential Citizens Medal for shielding students from Lanza.

It just adds insult to the suffering that we’re dealing with. It’s just incomprehensible that someone would think this kind of thing is wanted.” she added.

Meanwhile, Lambourn seems to be proud of the game and the fact that he has managed to appall everyone:

Following media coverage, some websites have taken down the ‘game’, yet it is still to be found on other online gaming sites.
