The newest gun games coming out of New York are a bit different from the ones in the Big Apple, according to a New York Times article.
“The games are all about guns, and they’re all really cool,” said Christopher Stahl, an associate professor at the City University of New London who studies the evolution of gun ownership in the United States.
“They’re not all about shooting and killing each other, though they all have that in common.”
“They’ve got different things in them, too, such as what is called ‘smart’ games and ‘casual’ games,” said John E. Hensler, a former director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, who studies how the nation’s drug laws have evolved over time.
The Times reports that “New York State’s two largest gaming companies, Games Outdoors and Gun Game Studios, have teamed up to produce games that will be released this year.”
The Times also reported that Games Outdoor has partnered with gun makers and manufacturers to develop new games that feature firearms.
The New York State Police has yet to comment on whether any of the new games are related to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and the Sandy Hook High School in Connecticut.
Guns Game Studios founder Matt Tocco said in an email to The Associated Press that “the guns we’ve designed have been carefully crafted to allow players to play them with their hands, without a trigger.
They have a great sense of playability and feel like they’re playing with real guns.”
He said the games will be available to buy online or in stores.
Horseshoe Bay, a small city on the East Coast, has already announced that it will be releasing its own game, Guns & Roses, in July.
The game, set in a fictional city in New England, features characters dressed as the Founding Fathers.
The games are set in the New England area and take place in an “outdoor playground.”
The Associated New York Business Council released a press release about the upcoming release, which was titled “New England Gun Games: Guns & Rose” and said the game “will be available on mobile devices.”
The city’s official website said the city has a gun registry, and gun owners can apply to register guns with the city to help it enforce laws against gun trafficking.
The city will have a gun sale on the website and on July 4 at noon, the city’s Parks Department will host a “Gun Sale for All” at its outdoor public park.
The “Gun Show for All,” which the AP reported is scheduled for July 3, will feature 10 different firearms, including handguns, rifles, shotguns, rifles with silencers, pistols, and a variety of ammunition, the Associated Press reported.
The AP also reported the city will be holding an open house July 5 at the city police department and at a public safety facility.
Guns &Rose is expected to launch on July 7.
The City Council has yet a final decision on whether to allow the games to be sold online, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the AP that he is confident the city can regulate them.
“It’s the first time in history that people have been able to sell guns online,” he said.
“This is a really big deal.
It’s the start of something really important.”
Guns &Loses is also expected to open on July 1 at a small park near the city hall, which will have outdoor areas for shooting, according the AP.
