Apple Bans Gun Emojis, Company Pops Up to Deliver Thousands of Gun Emojis to Your Phone
OutdoorHub Editor: Keenan Crow 08.08.16
Earlier this week, Apple announced that they would be replacing the gun emoji with a water gun on the iOS 10 update, which is set to be released this fall. Don’t worry though, your second amendment rights to bear emoji arms are being taken care of with Gunmoji, an app that has your six.
Their message is simple, gun emojis don’t kill people, people kill people, and they’re calling out Apple on their hypocritical stance on gun control. If Apple is going to remove the gun emoji because it depicts violence, shouldn’t they consider all other aspects, such as junk food emojis, and games that promote gun violence including a game that condones the killing of Police Officers?
