Donald Trump Jr. on Sunday posted three photos on Instagram showing off his AR-15 that features a depiction of Hillary Clinton apparently behind bars on the weapon’s magazine.
In the images, President Trump’s eldest son can be smiling while holding the assault rifle.
“Nice day at the range,” he wrote. “@rarebreedfirearms and @spikes_tactical adding a little extra awesome to my AR and that mag …”
“Lock her up” became a frequent rally cry for supporters of President Trump during the 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns.
The AR-15 also shows a medieval knight’s helmet with a Crusader cross above the magazine. It also has “Made in the USA” and “Crusader” etched on the rifle.
In today’s totally normal news for a democracy, the president’s son—who a significant percentage of Republicans favor as his successor—posted photos of himself shooting a gun featuring an image of a crusader’s cross & his father’s former opponent in jail. So insane & appalling. pic.twitter.com/zYvHnOZL6Z

Crusader imagery on weapons & propaganda has been used by Far-Right terrorists since Breivik pic.twitter.com/hLdgUAL7au
