(Liberty Bell) – Efforts by Dem lawmakers to take our guns is ramping up in liberal strongholds like Virginia and California. While the left is insisting on gun reforms that would blatantly infringe upon our Second Amendment rights, Big Tech is getting in on the anti-gun movement in their own unique and bizarre way.
Apparently, the word “gun” is now a bad word that we must be sheltered from hearing. Perhaps Big Tech is concerned that is we hear the word “gun” it will make us want to go out and buy them or even worse, use them. This isn’t the first attempt to censor gun-related words and pictures but it very well may be the most absurd to date.
Paul Joseph Watson reports:
Apple’s Siri voice assistant is now apparently refusing to say the word “gun” when used on an iPad.
Tracy Connors tweeted a video of herself attempting to have Siri read out a Daily Caller headline entitled ‘Virginia House of Delegates Passes Gun Ban, Seizure Bill’.
Instead of saying the word ‘gun’, Siri spelled out the letters G-U-N.

“Apple is now our parent and we’re fragile little children who can’t hear scary words,” said Connors.
As far back as 2016, Apple replaced its gun emoji with a water pistol in response to “a series of shootings in the US.”
Since leftists are triggered by so many different words and images, they probably think that conservatives are triggered by hearing the word gun. Perhaps if Big Tech refuses to allow their voice technology to say the word “gun” it will finally be the initiative that stops mass shootings in America.
This is completely absurd.
Meanwhile, Virginians are in an ugly fight against the tyrannous state government who is dead-set on taking away certain guns. Dems claim Virginians just “don’t need” big bad “semi-automatic” weapons so it’s their duty to take them away. Virginians aren’t taking it laying down, however, and have started a movement to establish Second Amendment sanctuary towns and cities which has inspired a national movement.
The Hill reports:
Other localities around the country are now joining Virginia, even in states such as Mississippi that are not contemplating gun control measures. At least 83 counties nationwide have declared themselves as Second Amendment sanctuaries this month, following at least 131 last month, according to a count of local media reports conducted by The Hill.
They join hundreds of other localities that have already made the declaration, growing a movement that takes its name from cities that have declared themselves as “sanctuaries” for undocumented immigrants, providing protection against the stricter immigration laws enforced by the Trump administration.
Localities declaring themselves as sanctuaries hail from a broad range of states, from those seen as having stronger protections for gun owners such as Kentucky and Texas to those seen as having stricter gun control laws such as Illinois, New Jersey and Oregon.
These profound efforts being made on the part of average, every day Americans is nothing, however, compared to the national efforts being made by Big Tech to censor gun-related pictures and words. Surely, we are no match for these kinds of tactics.
Only time will tell who will win this battle. Big Tech, with their water gun emojis and word censoring or patriotic citizens willing to stop at nothing to defend freedom in America.
