In an effort to make a more peaceful world or however you want to look at it, Apple has decided to pull the hand gun emoji. Huge deal to all those 14 year olds who are texting their friends about how bored they are at their aunts house. Not sure how this will solve anything, other than perhaps change the subject from; is Apple done? and onto, why did they do this?
Either way, get your hand gun emoji’s out of your system while you can. It appears this change will happen with the IOS 10. Personally, I never use it, I don’t care. But I certainly don’t think it should be swapped out with a water pistol.
