In the wake of the recent mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: EA) has removed links from the website for its popular military shooter “Medal of Honor: Warfighter” that allowed visitors to the page to shop for real weapons featured in the game.

Representatives for the Redwood City, California-based video game publisher were not immediately available for comment. But a spokesperson for the company told the BBC this week that the EA "felt it was inappropriate and took the links down."

Logos for the various weapon manufacturers and retailers, along with descriptions of the guns in question, are still available on the “Warfighter” website, however.
