Female Kent State Graduate Carries AR-10 on Campus

"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".

A picture of a Kent State University graduate carrying a rifle and graduation cap with the words "Come and take it" has gone viral.

Kaitlin Bennett posted the photo, which has more than 8,400 likes and 1,800 retweets, on Twitter Sunday night.

While Bennett received a lot of support for the photo and for standing up for gun rights, she also received a lot of criticism. "I discover it insulting that the varsity values the lives of their company greater than these attending the college for 4 years". 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 college has a rule towards college students, school, and employees carrying "lethal weapons". "So at the time of this photo, she and other graduates would be permitted to open carry on our campus".

Twitter reacts to Sundowns v Barcelona game
Tonight's match is part of celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela. Barcelona conclude their domestic campaign against Real Sociedad at the Nou Camp on Sunday.

School policy prohibits anyone associated with the school to carry weapons, like teachers and students, but a school official tells us "After graduation, [Bennett] joined the ranks of our proud graduates". Mansfield said they were taken Sunday, the day after graduation.

"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", Mansfield said in a statement.

Bennett mentioned although she's acquired demise threats due to her submit, she has no regrets.

On Tuesday, Bennett posted another picture and wrote, "I have no apologies for my graduation photos". "As a lady, I refuse to be a sufferer & the second modification ensures that I haven't got to be".

In one tweet, she wrote that the AR-10 'fires at the same rate as any modern pistol, ' not an assault rifle.
