What’s going on?
Bad news for conservative women: The dating app Bumble has decided to take a brave stand against “gun violence” by banning pictures of guns.
“As mass shootings continue to devastate communities across the country, it’s time to state unequivocally that gun violence is not in line with our values, nor do these weapons belong on Bumble,” the company said in a blog post.
Bumble is also donating $100,000 to the March for Our Lives demonstration, which is being organized by survivors of the Parkland shooting.
What else should I know?
The app started "moderating all new and previously uploaded photos for the presence of guns” as of Monday. The exception? Photos of military service members and law enforcement in uniform with guns are allowed to stay.
But wait a minute … don’t we all automatically stand against gun violence and every other kind of violence? What about murder? Should every business release a statement opposing homicide?
On today’s show, Doc and Martin talked about this story and why they have no problem opposing “gun violence” … they just don’t like the idea that Second Amendment supporters are being silenced.
