Kent State graduate's gun-toting photo goes viral

Kent State graduate's gun-toting photo goes viral

Kaitlin Bennett shared pictures of herself on Twitter with a gun holster around her body with an AR-10 strapped to her back and her graduation cap in her hand.

Bennett was referring to the infamous 1970 incident at the university in which Ohio Nation Guardsmen opened fire on student protesters, killing four and wounding nine.

Bennett said she should have been able to carry the weapon as a student "especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed by the government".

Those students were killed when guardsmen fired during a mass protest at the school's campus against the USA bombing of Cambodia.

In another photo, Bennett declared, "I have no apologies for my graduation photos", citing her Second Amendment rights.

"Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus". She was also voicing a wide-held belief that the Second Amendment was intended as means for Americans to defend themselves against the government.

Kent State graduate Kaitlin Bennett went viral over the weekend with a gun-toting photo.

"I needed to attract consideration to the gun insurance policies on campus that enable company to open carry, however not college students", she mentioned.

Kent State has a policy barring students, staff and faculty from carrying guns on campus.

Bennett, who graduated last week with a bachelor's degree in biology, responded to many, clarifying and exposing truth as she tweeted. While many spoke out on gun control, she said, "What is going on, where is the other side".

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

A woman who graduated from Kent State University in OH has caused an uproar over a campus photo shoot. The officers are visible, well-trained and on duty 24/7 to protect students, staff and faculty. "Why are guests more important than the students who are paying thousands of dollars to attend the university?"

She has received mixed reactions on social media. Mansfield said they were taken the day after graduation.

Bennett, who was raised by a Republican family in Zanesville, Ohio, knew her photo would provoke backlash.

Bennett has been vocal about gun rights before. She told ABC News that she wanted the photo to "show who I am as a person".
