This ‘Thoughts & Prayers’ game brilliantly mocks politicians’ inactivity on guns

The reaction to every mass shooting in America is the same. Left-leaning politicians demand long-overdue gun reform, right-leaning politicians offer their thoughts and prayers to the victims.

Often there's a strange and - we assume, completely unconnected - correlation between whether than politician has accepted a donation from the National Rifle Association and those offering those oh-so-sincere thoughts and prayers.

This brilliant online game mercilessly mocks those who stand idly by, illustrating just how effective those thoughts and prayers are to actually preventing further gun deaths in America. 

Click here to play it, and see how much difference praying really hard, and thinking really hard makes to people being massacred by lethal weapons.
