Photo of Kent State graduate carrying AR-10 on campus goes viral

Kaitlin Marie

Bennett says she took the pics "Simply because I am so passionate about the second amendment and gun rights". "Kent became an open-carry campus in the past year and there were many protests from that, the incident of May 4 not forgotten".

A former Kent State University student and her rifle went viral after graduation photos showcased an AR-15 strapped to her back while walking through campus, but the school has no issue with her shot thanks to a well-timed loophole.

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". In the photos, she poses around Kent State University's campus wearing a white dress and a gun holster around her body. 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.

"You see in the media a lot about college students and high school students, being advocates for gun control", said Bennett.

The post was retweeted more than 1800 times and had more than 2700 comments.

This means that the phone should very comfortably last at least a day with moderate use - and perhaps even longer. The phone is heavily expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 6GB RAM.

"It's because of you we have to fear for our lives", responded a Twitter user. She took major backlash online, including death threats from people who thought the picture was in incredibly poor taste. "So I'm not nervous", said Bennett.

According to its website, the university has rules against students, faculty, and staff carrying any "deadly weapons".

But visitors may openly carry a gun outside on campus, since it is considered public property of the state. 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".

The new graduate is one of the founders of the "Liberty Hangout" group, her Twitter bio reads. "They're cute. Humans? Nah".
