A conservative woman who recently graduated from Kent State University has received threats after she took aim at her school’s anti-gun policies in a photo shoot where she carried an AR-10 and wore a cap that said, “Come and take it.”

Kaitlin Bennett, a 22-year-old Second Amendment supporter from Zanesville, Ohio and founder of Liberty Hangout at Kent State, a student media outlet that promotes libertarian values, posed in front of the Kent Student Center for the tweet that has gone viral.

“Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus. I should have been able to do so as a student – especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus. #CampusCarryNow,” she posted on Twitter Sunday.

Bennett told Fox News she wanted to condemn the school’s “insulting” policies.

“I wanted to draw attention to the gun policies on campus that allow guests to open carry, but not students,” she said. “I find it insulting that the school values the lives of their guests more than those attending the university for four years.”

The university has a rule against students, faculty, and staff carrying “deadly weapons.” But Kent State University spokesman Eric Mansfield told Fox News that because Bennett is no longer a student, she violated no policies.

“After graduation, she joined the ranks of our proud graduates,” Mansfield said. “So at the time of this photo, she and other graduates would be permitted to open carry on our campus.”

Good for her!

Ive always found death threats from the anti-gun crowd amusing. What are they going to do, give her dirty looks until she dies?

They are sooo against guns and violence, yet issue death threats... Give me a break.

some of the responses to her tweet . . . no wonder she wants to carry. I love the 'gun control supporters dont know anything about gun control' video in the article.

Is it just me or does a beautiful woman carrying an AR seem even that much sexier? This young lady's pretty darn sharp across the board.

AR 10 to boot! Going with plenty of horsepower and range.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

I can't help but wonder how some of those interviewed will function in the real world. Maybe institutes of higher learning can create a course before graduation called "Smarts".

It's a great picture:

Great photo and highlights the absurdity of it all. Students and staff are dis-armed and helpless yet any stranger can legally carry on campus...including and active shooter, who'd be legal until they pull the trigger.
