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.”

Mansfield noted that KSU has a full-time, certified police force of more than 30 sworn officers who protect the campus and the university was recently ranked the safest big college campus in Ohio and the 25th safest in the country, according to National Council for Home Safety and Security.

Gun Control Advocates Know Nothing About Guns

Bennett said even though she’s received death threats because of her post, she has no regrets.

“I have no apologies for my graduation photos,” she tweeted Tuesday. “As a woman, I refuse to be a victim & the second amendment ensures that I don’t have to be.”

In another tweet, she made it clear her gun is an AR-10 and not an “assault rifle” as many had claimed.

“Don’t talk about gun control,” Bennett wrote, “when you can’t even get your facts straight.”

      Gives you hope? You should have all the hope in the world! America has THE BEST politicians money can buy! They are great! They are WELL qualified to make our laws, especially laws concerning guns which they know absolutely nothing about. They prove this on a regular basis.

      NOW, we need to change the law to allow those who want to be doctors to practice medicine, write prescriptions and do surgery! NO need for ANY medical training. No college, no tests, they want to be a doctor, GREAT! You are now a doctor! Because that is EXACTLY what we have in our politicians when it comes to guns. No knowledge, no training, no experience and we allow them to tinker with our lives! They protect THEMSELVES with guns and walls, but they do not want us to have them because guns are bad and walls not only do not work, but they are racist! They often tell us this, then their armed security escorts them home to their mansion behind the big wall.

      Never forget, they protect our children with a sign that says “Gun free zone”. You know, the same gun free zones where more than 92% of mass shootings happen? If that works so well Mr. Politician, WHY don’t you put a neon sign in front of your home proclaiming “This house a proudly gun free house!” Then, send your armed security away! Because NOBODY needs a gun, you say so all the time! Your sign will keep you just as safe as your sign keeps our children!

      Have we had ENOUGH yet folks?

        It gives me hope because I see that some in that generation understand that it’s the 2nd Amendment that guarantees all the others!

    It MIGHT help if every TV show and movie didn’t portray all guns, and many pistols shooting ‘full auto’. The truth is that such weapons are, and long have been, prohibited, and carefully licensed, and sale restricted. STOP the TV and movie industry from this inaccurate portrayal, and much of the confusion would be corrected!

      It would help if there were no television with ridiculous “fake” portrayals of guns. Hollywood doesn’t have a clue.

    She thinks she should carry that at a college? Then the sign saying come and take it? They wouldn’t let people carry guns at the NRA when trump was there and nobody said they were taking their guns? They’re taking her right to own a gun because they don’t want guns on a college campus? Send your kid to a college where they all carry guns then. Nobody’s trying to take anybody’s guns, they’re trying to curb nuts from carrying them. How many shooting were by students? Sure then, let them carry around guns in certain colleges and send your kids there. It’s like you people are purposely trying to make it look like they want your guns when they don’t. When you’re kid gets his or her head blown off you can drape the coffin with, hurry for gun rights! You people have the mentality of a five year old trying to get his or her way.

      You clearly didn’t read the story, not the entire story anyway. She said, “I wanted to draw attention to the gun policies on campus that allow guests to open carry, but not students”.
      I’d rather send my child to a school where everyone has a gun, than to one where only the bad guys do!

      You seem to be the one with “the mentality of a five year old”. When I was in college, a friend of mine, who was on the school pistol team, kept a semi-auto 9mm pistol in his dorm room with the blessings of the school. We took it out on weekends and used empty milk cartons as targets. No one was ever threatened with a firearm on that campus. But, this was in the mid 1960s, before all this “gun control” idiocy was started. People, then, understood the 2nd Amendment and no one suggested violating it.

      If you bothered to do some research, you would soon learn that the more drastic the gun control, the LESS safe people are. Look at Chicago. Most draconian anti-gun laws in the USA and yet, there have been 3,000 people shot in Chicago in 2018 alone.

      AND, YES the anti-gun crowd DOES want to take away our guns completely. Some of them are admitting it when talking in front of news cameras. You see, they cannot succeed in turning the USA into the socialist hell hole they want it to be as long as citizens are armed.

        OOPS! The 3000 shootings is from Oct. 2017. 2018 Shootings in Chicago is 800+ so far this year.

    I’m VERY proud of this girl. We need more like her. I was at Kent State on May 4, 1970, and I can tell you that, if a college hasn’t learned their lesson, (in the fall-out of that aftermath), they never will. It’s the quintessential oxymoron. An institution of higher learning who refuses to learn from the past. (Lovely!). Well here’s MY answer to Kent State, any other college, or ANYONE for that matter:

    I will only say this one time: There is NO federal or state law, NO county or city ordinance, NO company/school policy, nor door signs, nor limits and/or barriers of ANY kind, that have the authority to infringe upon my RIGHT AS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN TO OWN AND CARRY ANY TYPE, OR AMOUNT OF WEAPON(S) I CHOOSE ANYWHERE – PERIOD. Additionally, there is NO ONE, (including those in power who believe they have the authority, [and including the President of the United States]), who can tell me I cannot own and/or carry ANY type of weapon I chose – anywhere. That is what SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED means. It is not an implication. It is not an implied mandate. It Is an INALIENABLE right, inspired by God, conceived and facilitated by the 2nd Amendment. ANYONE who disagrees w/ this needs a lesson in Constitutional Law 101.

    Therefore, (Kent State), take your gun-free zone and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS!

      I agree, Louis. High school civics was exchanged for “social studies” to “culturalize” the next generations for open borders and socialist global agendas. 3 generations barely know Constitutional law and have a minimally basic understanding of the biblical basis for the founding principles of America, unless of course they seek the information from other sources. Parents need to demand these principles be placed back in high school first. Then demand higher education teach ALL sides of history and science if that school accepts any tax dollars. Being offended, or hate speech, as the politically correct crowd spouts is simply a way to silence those who disagree with you. Why do you think the leftists scream, riot, and shut down any opposing debate or speakers?? That is removing someone else’s free speech and demanding they “think” like you do, or suffer the consequences. That is communism…group think the same as me or I will be loud, obnoxious, or even violent to silence you. If you don’t comply then I will harrass or even remove you from my version of society one way or another! Constitutional law is still the law of this land. Inform yourselves kiddos. Informed debate is essential to a FREE society.

    The 2nd amendment is the only amendment which has the iron clad “Shall not be infringed” addition to the language. Interestingly, it is also the only enumerated right you need government permission to exercise. The right is specifically given to “The people”, that’s you and me. EVERY law restricting our right to carry, use etc, is in direct violation of the constitution. Where is my concealed carry permit? It is in the constitution of the United States 2nd amendment, which says SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! We do not need lawyers, courts, judges, scholars or politicians to “interpret” the 2nd amendment. Even the ones who get it right get it wrong. it needs NO interpretation! I don’t give a damn where the comma is in the first part, the second part is plain English. The right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed.

    And allowing people who have never read the constitution and have absolutely no knowledge of guns, decide what to do with or about guns is INSANITY! Anti gun politicians only interaction with guns is that their personal bodyguards have them. But, these are the people who make speeches about how we don’t need guns, guns are bad. They also tell us how walls do not work and walls are racist. Then, their armed bodyguards take them home to their house behind the big wall.

    Had enough yet America?

    The 2nd amendment was put in place to protect the american people. the British would not allow the gun in the cities.making it easy to control the people.in order to be free from the British, we needed to be armed.
    Germans and Japanese sit off our shores in world war 2.they found they would have to fight the armed people before the national guard would arrive. now we want to allow the people to remove our guns so isis can set ieds in our roadsides.sit bombs in public places. we do not live in a time like the people in the middle east. remove our guns, the united states will be a different place to live.

    What Stops the Progressive Dems & Repubs as well as New World Order Zealots from Destruction of America?
    Our RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. History has Proven again & again that when the Ppl have no way of Protecting themselves from Governments Tyrants Dictators & Progressive Liberals that Infest American Political Structure its only a matter of time before the blood bath begins as the Ppl are systematically erased to produce a population of scared sheep that will do as told when told by ppl like Obama Hillary Hitler Stalin Lenon etc.Some of these names r drenched n blood from the Millions they Killed to control their countries population. Stalin Murdered 35 Million Russians right After WW2 to keep power. A Lesson n Never handing Total Control of our Lives Over to Any Government.Obama Tried to turn over Total Control of the U.S. to the Corrupt U.N..If Trump hadn’t Beaten Hillary she would be finishing Obamas Agenda to Destroy America and Disarm its ppl. 2nd Amendment was added to Protect Us from a Rouge Out of Control Government. Arm Yourselves Americans. Its your Right.
