Kent State graduate's photos with AR-10 and cap go viral

Two days later, Bennett followed up on the post by tweeting, "I have no apologies for my graduation photos".

The photo shows Bennett with her AR-10 and holding a graduation cap reading "Come and take it".

Bennett, who studied zoology at the university and is a digital content producer for the libertarian website Liberty Hangout, tells Yahoo Lifestyle, "I made a decision 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".

"Just seeing that someone is out there and young who loves the second amendment and loves gun rights, that gives someone else hope", said Bennett.

Kent State University's policy prohibits students, staff, and third parties doing business with the university from having a deadly weapon inside buildings and outside campus grounds, according to WKYC.

Bennett explained on Twitter why she chose to partake in the photo shoot, citing students who were shot and killed on campus at Kent State University.

The images were posted to Twitter and went viral. You think shooting at the National Guard would have gone well for you, tweeted another.

"What is going on, where is the other side", said Bennett, it was in that moment she decided to make a stand. You're the biggest advocates for gun rights. "You proved exactly why people carry".

Bennett said she had been planning the photo shoot with the "family" firearm for weeks leading up to graduation. Give him a call.

"The tolerant and definitely-not-racist left wing at work here, folks", Bennett replied.

Many were supportive of Bennett's message and thanked her for defending Second Amendment rights.

In the photo above, Bennett smiles alongside a "Make America Great Again" flag in support of the president.

As president of the university's chapter of the libertarian media outlet Liberty Hangout, she's used to being attacked, said Bennett, who was also formerly president of the Kent State chapter of Turning Point USA, a conservative organization.

"I carry, so I'm not nervous", said Bennett. We believe in decentralization down to the individual level, and that the government which is closest to home is easiest to control.
