Female Kent State Graduate Carries AR-10 on Campus

Share

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". "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", referring to the day in 1970 when the Ohio National Guard opened fire into a crowd of unarmed students who were protesting the Vietnam War.

As a Black woman, it's hard for 19-year-old Kent State sophomore Aliah Kimbro to support Bennett when she knows her own gun rights "aren't safe anywhere", she told Refinery29.

"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.

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 her graduation post on Facebook, Bennett wrote, "3 meetings with student conduct, 2 expulsion attempts, and a petition to get my student group kicked off campus. all for nothing".

After graduation, Bennett says she plans to stay in the area.

'But you don't see a lot going viral about students who are pro-second amendment and pro-gun rights'.

In another tweet, she made it clear that her gun is an AR-10 and not an "assault rifle". "The left is out of control", she wrote in a Facebook post in response to one Twitter user's threat.

But campus police can't always intervene fast enough, Bennett said, arguing that "pulling out a gun is easier than dialing 911".

A college graduate's photo of her carrying a rifle has gone viral. He said, "After graduation, she joined the ranks of our proud graduates". However Kent State College spokesman Eric Mansfield advised Fox Information that as a result of Bennett is not a scholar, she violated no insurance policies. She told ABC News that she wanted the photo to "show who I am as a person".
