Chrome Extension Removes Names, Photos of Mass Shooters

Chrome/zerominutesoffame(NEW YORK) -- The "Zero Minutes of Fame" campaign seeks to take the spotlight off mass shooters with a Chrome extension that scrubs the names and faces of the perpetrators from the Internet.

The extension was released by The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

"By simply downloading this plug-in, you can wipe away the killer's name and image from your screen, and replace it with something that truly deserves our attention -- the victims," the browser's download description reads.

The Brady Campaign says 30 percent of mass killings and 22 percent of school shootings are inspired by previous gun-related events.
