Kaitlin Bennett just graduated from Kent State.
But instead of catching some summer sun and planning her next big life step, Kaitlin is fielding death threats.
Well… she posed with a gun.
HOW DAAAARE SHE?!
According to Fox News:
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. #CampusCarryNowpic.twitter.com/a91fQH44cq

I know this is an odd thing to say, but I HAVE to say it. HOLY MOTHER OF HAIR ENVY! Her hair is GORGEOUS. Kaitlin, know that us Chicks think you’re kick-a$$ and STUNNING. KILLER COMBO!
“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.
Because STUDENTS and FACULTY at Kent State can’t carry…
But visitors can.
Does that not BLOW YOUR MIND?!
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.”
I have no apologies for my graduation photos. As a woman, I refuse to be a victim & the second amendment ensures that I don’t have to be. pic.twitter.com/5CKmQobrMb

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.
Thanks to all who have sent me death threats for taking a picture. You’re the biggest advocates for gun rights. You proved exactly why people carry.

SPOT FREAKING ON, Kailtlin!
The PSYCHOS that would threaten a life for carrying are EXACTLY why we carry in the first place.
This girl is a BOSS!
Congrats on graduation! Your future is looking MIGHTY BRIGHT!
