Kent State graduate makes a statement with gun-toting photo

Kent State graduate makes a statement with gun-toting photo”

Her tweet's caption reads, "Now that I graduated from Kent State - I can finally arm myself on campus". In an interview with the Akron Beacon Journal on April 25, 2018, Bennett said, "Kent State is one of the few schools in OH that decided that students wouldn't be permitted to open carry on campus while guests can".

He also said that all guns are banned at Dix Stadium and that Bennett notified the university of her intent to have the photos taken. A picture of a gun and the words "come and take it" decorated the graduation cap.

"Kent State University was recently ranked the safest big college campus in OH and 25th safest in the country, according to the National Council for Home Safety and Security". 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. She has no apologies for anyone who may have been offended by the photo. Do you not see the problem here?

"Don't talk about gun control when you can't even get your facts straight", she wrote.

However, for all the backlash Bennett received, she claims to have received dozens of messages of support from "people who feel they can't express their support for me publicly because they will be harassed next".

Although it is against University policy for students to carry deadly weapons, Bennett did nothing wrong because she waited until after receiving her diploma to grab her gun, and technically was no longer a student. "Stand your ground. You go girl a lot of us have your back", another commenter wrote. "So at the time of this photo, she and other graduates would be permitted to open carry on our campus". She's now armed with a new degree in biology - the study of life, not liberties. The college student-run organization is a right-wing group that vows to protect the Second Amendment.
