"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".
Bennett referred to the 1970 campus shooting by the Ohio National Guard that killed four students and injured nine others during a protest against the Vietnam War. She plans on exercising her Second Amendment right and stand her ground. During her time at Kent State, she founded a chapter of Liberty Hangout, a small libertarian media outlet dedicated to promoting peace, prosperity, and property rights.
Bennett, who studied zoology at the university and is a digital content producer for the libertarian website Liberty Hangout, tells Yahoo Lifestyle, "I chose to come back to campus and take graduation photos with an AR-10 because I wanted to start a conversation about gun rights on college campuses".
In Bennett's accompanying message to her photo, she wrote, "Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus". "I graduated & the left did not win". To Bennett, the photo was the culmination of her years as a conservative student activist, during which she advocated for students to be able to carry concealed weapons on the same campus where, nearly 50 years ago, the Ohio National Guard opened fire into a crowd of unarmed students protesting the Vietnam War, killing four and wounding nine.
Bennett tweeted several images from a photo shoot that she took to mark graduation. "Why are guests more important than the students who are paying thousands of dollars to attend the university?"
"If a black man had walked around like this dozens of Police would have been called and he would have been shot dead on the spot".
California governor slams Trump for 'lying' about immigration at 'sanctuary city' roundtable
Venting out his frustration at officials in both Mexico and California, Trump vowed to strengthen the US' "weak" immigration laws. Last year, multiple cities throughout the state also voted to enact sanctuary city polices in their local jurisdictions.
On Tuesday, Bennett posted another picture.
In response, Bennett suggested such critics "speak to the BLACK officer who was with us the entire time".
The point of Bennet's photo and message appeared to be that as a graduate, she has more rights to carry a gun on campus than she did as a student, .
"I have no words". Twitter evidently suspended the Twitter user's account. "You say you don't want to take away legally owned guns, but had NO IDEA that the rifle pictured is legally owned", she replied to other commenters.
"Dear @CNN, Trump said Haiti was a sh*thole COUNTRY", Bennett wrote.
