A video game allowing players to play as an “active shooter” is drawing backlash from parents.
“It turns my stomach it makes me sick to watch it,” said parent Stephanie Robinett.
Around noon on Friday, Stephanie Robinett found out about the video game titled “Active Shooter.” The mother of three said she couldn’t believe a game like this exists, reports KCPQ.
“How could anyone think this is ok?” she said.
Active Shooter is set to be available for download on Steam, a digital distribution platform for video games. Steam is developed by the Bellevue, Wash.- based company Valve.
Valve itself did not create the game, but is providing the platform for people to access it.
“It’s not ok to do it in a school and any reasonable company should know that,” Robinett said.
Robinett says she cant just sit by and do nothing. In about six hours, Robinett got organized, creating a petition on Change.org.
The petition already has more than a thousand signatures. She says she has only one goal.
“I want them to pull the game simple, just pull it,” Robinett said.
Robinett said in the world we live in today, this game just crosses the line.
