The continued aftershocks of the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Florida are rumbling across social media, and are now shaking the online dating world to the core.
The Parkland attack has largely been misrepresented in the mainstream media as a gun control issue, due to the liberal left’s pathetic obsession with neutering the Second Amendment. In reality, the actions of Nikolas Cruz, the 19 year old mass murderer, were not inspired by the weapons that he legally purchased, but, rather, by “demon voices” that instructed Cruz during the killing.
Still, the left rages against the right to bear arms, hoping once day to inherit a position of power with no armed opposition to enforce term limits.
The reactions have been absurd.
Several retailers arbitrarily raised the age requirements for purchasing rifles from 18 to 21 years of age. This possibly illegal move has been met with serious resistance from both the Firearms Policy Coalition and a lawyered-up 20 year old.
Now, one online dating app called Bumble is taking a stance against the portrayal of firearms in profile photos, claiming that it was making their mostly-female clientele uncomfortable.
“Starting Monday, the app began ‘moderating all new and previously uploaded photos for the presence of guns,’ according to the post. This moderation excludes photos of military personnel or law enforcement in uniform.“This initiative comes amid a nationwide call for gun control. Many businesses have taken stances by cutting ties with the National Rifle Association.
“‘Online behavior can both mirror and predict how people treat each other in the real world. Bumble has a responsibility to our users and a larger goal to encourage accountability offline,’ the company said.”
