Font-awesome: Icon Request: gun

Most helpful comment

+1

Is there a philosophical/political objection to including basic symbols for weapons in FA? It does seem rather weird that there are so many options for a category like "Gender", and there is a jet fighter icon, but no icons to represent the basic tools used by millions of police, security guards, soldiers around the world, every day. There isn't even Apple's ludicrously politically-correct water-pistol.

Please consider adding a pistol and rifle. Thank you. Let users make their own philosophical/political choices as to how these icons are used.

(And no, I'm not a gun enthusiast. I don't own a gun, don't want a gun, and am in favour of gun control. But nor am I fan of technology enthusiasts/providers controlling language by omitting basic symbols of language, whether by accident or intent. See: Apple. The basic reality is that the provision of an icon doesn't mean one thing or another; some people have a need of those icons.)

Please add this - almost every game has some sort of weapon in it so any site for any game related thing is going to require this to some extent. A gun, rifle, maybe knife or sword - pretty much any weapon related icon - a variety would be useful.

Plus there are so many +1 comments here it's looking a but strange as to why there is no resolution. If you won't add it at least tell us out right.

Almost four years with no response or progress. Always nice when virtue signalling trumps the end user experience and the usability of a project.

@JosephWeaver Don't be mean, they probably don't want to give the gang members (who all use Font Awesome) any good ideas. Think about it, that icon could be used to rob someone!

How can this still be an issue? What possibly is the reason to avoid having a simple gun or pistol icon?
We are currently stuck trying to symbolize what content is prohibited from shipping, but font awesome doesn't even have a basic symbol for guns. And since there hasn't even been an official reply on this thread for FIVE years, it makes me wonder how much they really care.

Here the gun icon on facebook:

FontAwesome could do the same, add a toy to fa-gun and then takedown this issue...

Need a handgun icon for an enterprise application. How about some kind of answer?

@butlermj How about you get a designer to make them, since it's for an "enterprise application"?

FontAwesome is no longer relevant anyway. Switched a while ago, because they no longer update anything but fake gender icons and corporate logos. Unsubscribing from this thread. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Awww there is too much gender icons for you to compute
And aww not enough big gun icons for you right?

:sad_emoji:

Take a deep breath, everything is okay, go on google image and write "ak47" normally you should be better XD

mr21 picture mr21  ·  30 Sep 2019

Well, there are 52 gender icons and 0 gun icons, by my count.

So, yes, I guess that’s both more than necessary, and not necessarily enough, respectively.

And also, respectfully, I’ve already done “the google” and taken my business elsewhere. I’m sure FA doesn’t need my business anyway.

Your trolling is not appreciated. This is supposed to be a professional site. Please act like it, and show some tolerance for other people's views on this matter.

A professionnal website with people who say "fake genders"?
Give me a break :D

I can feel the alt-right in this issue...

And the dude is sadly misinterpreting shapes with genders icon, he probably doesn't understand that the triangle is not a gender lol

@mr21 Did you just make the best argument for the alt-right? Sure, the alt-right sucks, but it sounds like you're calling everyone who isn't alt-right deranged. Luckily you don't have to be alt-right to know something about biology. And regarding your last point - there will be trianglegender at some point, if there isn't already.

Reading is difficult, i understand this with you XD
For an unknown reason you have imagined an "NOT" or a negation somewhere in my comment.

I said i can feel the alt-right here because somebody is starting to say something close to "stop gay shit... we want guns"
And now you said that i'm making no-alt-right guys deranged?
Are you assuming no-hetero people (the people which would like to be represented with all those "fake" gender icons) are deranged people?

This is such a dirty issue, and it concerns guns what's the odd...
Do you think in a parallel universe all this debate would stand for the "fork" icon?

As this issue is going increasingly off the rails, it would be useful to have someone from the project itself comment (and possibly moderate).

So this is about your feelings and consigning motives? I don't think it's unreasonable to point out the obvious pandering by fa dev team.

This request is currently #1 on our leaderboard. This is our voting system and it heavily influences what icons we add.

Feel free to poke at us for not adding this yet, for being slow, or for our lack of communication; we can own and be responsible for all of those.

However, disrespecting another human being in this thread will not be tolerated. I trust everyone else here can rally behind that? 🙂
