Second Amendment advocate and recent Kent State University graduate Kaitlin Bennett has sparked debate for the way she expressed her opposition to the school’s policy against students carrying firearms on campus.
Bennett just accepted her diploma on Saturday. The next day, she posted a photo on Twitter that showed the new alumna walking with an AR-10 on campus while carrying her cap emblazoned with the words “Come and take it.”
Kent State’s firearms policy allows alums and visitors to carry outdoors on campus, but students, faculty and staff are prohibited from doing so. In Bennett’s accompanying message to her photo, she wrote, “Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus.”
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
