College grad wears gun holster with AR-10 in her graduation photos

College grad wears gun holster with AR-10 in her graduation photos

Many students celebrate graduation by throwing their caps in the air and taking photos filled with smiles.

Kaitlin Bennett shared photos of herself wearing an AR-10 rifle strapped to her back and her graduation cap in hand.

Bennett's photos provoked strong reactions from many social media users.

Her tweet reads in part, "Now that I've graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus".

In an interview with Campus Reform, Bennett explained her protest further, saying, "Kent State University is a school in which the government shot four unarmed students 48 years ago".

The point of Bennet's photo and message appeared to be that as a graduate, she has more rights to carry a gun on campus than she did as a student, .

The university bars students, staff, and third parties doing business with Kent State from possessing deadly weapons.

"I'm glad that my photos are making headlines, because my intent was to start a discussion about gun rights on college campuses", Bennett told USA Today. "Why are guests more important than the students who are paying thousands of dollars to attend the university?"

However Kent State College spokesman Eric Mansfield advised Fox Information that as a result of Bennett is not a scholar, she violated no insurance policies. "#CampusCarryNow", she posted on Twitter.

"If students thought my political activism at Kent will be over now that I have graduated, they are wrong", she said.

"It is a bad a** picture", said Bennett.

The past few days have been trying, but Bennett plans on standing her ground and exercising her 2nd amendment right.

Bennett mentioned although she's acquired demise threats due to her submit, she has no regrets.

Bennett's Twitter page shows the woman as an avid supporter of President Trump, whom she often commends and supports via her profile.

"The presence of a firearm would have deterred this assault", she wrote.

"As a woman, I refuse to be a victim and the Second Amendment ensures that I don't have to be", she tweeted.

Kaitlin said the weapon is legally owned, and that she was supervised by a campus cop when questioned about the photos by fellow tweets. And though this policy may be well-intentioned, Bennett says that it suggests that students are less deserving of protection.
