“Defend Hawaii” T-shirts feature AR-15 assault rifles
The same sort of assault rifle used in the school massacre has been featured on T-shirts, caps, and car stickers which have been selling in Hawaii for about 5 years.
Keith Conklin, PhD, raises several important issues in this article. Response to his article has been spirited and often negative. If the shirt and cap are repulsive, don’t buy them. I suppose all of this comes under the "Free Speech" provisions of the U.S. Constitution. There was a time when such displays as burning the American flag were considered bad taste and often illegal. But now, public mores have changed…anything goes. Aloha, Russ.
