FORT MYERS, FL.--Remember when duck hunting was as violent as it got? Well now, there's the Delta Six gaming gun.
Some say it's the most realistic gaming gun ever invented and it's targeted to teenagers.
"I don't think it should be that realistic," said one gamer.
The Delta Six comes with a scope and silencer and kicks back just like a real assault riffle.
The company's website say's it's sharp, functional and recommends it for gamers with kids at home.
But some parents say in a world where mass shootings haven't exactly been rare, The Delta Six is just bad news.
"It's one thing to sit there with a remote control but to sit there with a realistic looking gun? It rubs me the wrong way," said mother Jana Brinson.
We spoke to local child psychiatrist Omar Rieche and he says more and more studies find violence in young people can stem from these aggressive video games.
"They become desensitize so that they feel like it is an everyday thing to be able to have a gun and shoot it," said Rieche.
One father completely disagrees and says it comes back to proper parenting.
"You know the difference between right and wrong and if parents are willing to teach their kids on the differences of right and wrong--thats where you have the world of fantasy and the world of real," said Paul Marshall.
The Delta Six will start shipping in December.
