AR-15 Lapel Pins Are the Perfect Symbol for Today’s GOP

“Imagine members strutting around the corridors of Congress in late 2001 with a Boeing 747 lapel pin, or wearing a spiky replica of the coronavirus when New York City’s morgues were overflowing in the spring of 2020. Explain to me how worshiping an AR-15 — when the blood stains are still being scrubbed off a dance studio in Monterey Park, Club Q in Colorado Springs, or a bus in Charlottesville — is any different, really?”

— Will Bunch, commenting on the AR-15 lapel pins being worn by many Republican members of Congress.
