This week, Ashley and Mike look at the rise of the “Glocker mom” (or, as they are known in the N.R.A., “Defense Debbies”), a new breed of gun-loving suburban moms who have become Instagram stars by promoting the virtues of firearms and fashionable options for concealed carry. Clara Molot, an Air Mail associate editor, joins them to discuss her reporting on the story. In addition, David Kaufman, a frequent Air Mail contributor, discusses his essay responding to a proposal in California to pay reparations to descendants of enslaved people.
