    iPhone update - lost my pistol emoji????

    Not sure if this has been discussed before, but I did a iPhone update last week - all good. I went to send my brother a txt last night about shooting rabbits. Well bugger me, apple has replaced the revolver emoji with a bloody green water pistol!!!???

    Did a search on the internet and found this:

    A green water pistol pointed at a bunny rabbit emoji kind of takes away the message I was trying to get through ......

    Also the quote is wrong. Crime in general including gun crime had been in the decline in the States for the last couple of decades. This has happened at the same time as they have been fighting multiple violent wars resulting in millions of people with mental health trauma.

    It's not just apple, most of the tech firms got together and decided to 'update' the emoji standard to a water pistol. Will show up on android too eventually.. Same group of companies that decided the idea of adding a rifle emoji made them uncomfortable..

    And they just ignored the bomb icon underneath the water pistol one. Timothy McVeigh an apparent underachiever...
