Dating App Bumble Wont Match You If You Have Guns In Your Profile Photos
Bumble, the dating app for people interested in more “serious” relationships than those found on Tindr and Match (though, frankly, that’s a low bar), is taking steps to prevent legal gun owners from using their sexy, sexy weapons to entice members of the opposite sex.
