Can anybody who opposes Second Amendment rights please explain how something like this strengthens your position?

A new pro-gun-control game allows players to reenact last year’s Sandy Hook elementary school massacre.
The game, The Slaying of Sandy Hook, has players to carry out a bleak, stylized version of the shooting, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults. Players take on the role of Adam Lanza, the perpetrator, and text boxes prompt them to pick up a Glock pistol, move into the bedroom of Lanza’s mother, Nancy, and shoot her four times, just as Lanza did in real life. They are then directed to pick up an AR-15, ammunition, and Nancy Lanza’s car keys.
The game then moves to Sandy Hook Elementary where players have an 11 minute time-limit to kick in classroom and bathroom doors and slaughter students and teachers as they flee or cower on the ground. There are no voices or music; the only sound effects come from gunfire and bullets impacting bodies. When prompted, players may also end the game by committing suicide.
Players are then presented with a results screen, which informs them of the number of surviving students and teachers, including whether they hid, played dead, or were wounded. There are 58 potential victims in the game, though the screen informs readers that the total body count in real life was 26 dead and 2 wounded.
The game then urges players to carry out the same acts in “gun control mode” using a katana. The thought being, the massacre would not have been as devastating without the use of guns.
Using their flawed logic however, gun control mode would work fine if say you didn’t cheat, or break the rules by stealing legally registered guns as Lanza did.
Also, where is ‘mental illness mode’?
Players are also prompted to contact their lawmakers and pressure them to pass anti-gun legislation.
