Her Graduation Photos Brought Death Threats — Because She Had a Gun
Russ Chastain 05.21.18
In the midst of the chaos and moronitude of everyday humanity, it’s refreshing to hear a voice of reason… and young Kaitlin Bennett is one of those voices. Sadly, though, her reward for exercising her rights has been a constant stream of death threats. But what did this young lady do to generate such enmity from complete strangers?
She toted an AR-style rifle in her graduation photos, and had the nerve to speak up about the need for self-defense.
Upon graduating from Kent State University (yes, *that* Kent State, where the U.S. government murdered students for protesting), Kaitlin found herself in a new situation. Because she was no longer a student, she could legally carry a firearm on campus. And to underscore the idiocy of any rule which prohibits students from possessing effective means of self-defense, she carried legally and openly, posing for photos with “Come and Take it” clearly written on her graduation cap.
A nervy stand for freedom in today’s world, and in my opinion a worthwhile one. And predictably, fools have attacked her for stating her support for their right to keep and bear arms, especially on campus.
I won’t post here much of the filth she has received. It’s full of profanity, insults, and wishes for her violent death. You can see some of it on her Facebook timeline. She also has a Facebook page called Kait’s Unsafe Space.
Even the self-righteous actor Jim Carrey has slammed her, reportedly painting her likeness with a devil’s face filling the background and alleging that she is somehow responsible for the Santa Fe High School murders in Texas last Friday. I won’t post his repulsive painting here.
If someone had told me a week ago that freaking Jim Carrey would be blaming me for the next school shooting I would have laughed harder than I’ve ever laughed at his attempts of comedy.
But boy. Here we are.
Many of her new enemies attack her for being white. She responds:
I am not a victim of racism because I brought a rifle to campus. I am the victim of racism because racist leftists threatened to kill me because of my skin color. They also said I was a school shooter because I’m white & that “this is the sh– that makes me hate white people.”
But when I simply mentioned black on black gun crime stats they tell me I’M RACIST and call the black gun owners defending me an uncle tom.
Whether you agree with her or not, you have to admit she’s got guts and she’s willing to stand up for civil rights, which sadly is not all that common these days. Me, I say, “Kudos, Kait! Stay safe, and keep up the good work.”
