Girl wears gun in viral graduation photos

from CBSNews,

A recent college graduate from Kent State University in Ohio is gaining attention online for graduation photos she posted on Twitter. Kaitlin Bennett shared photos of herself wearing an AR-10 rifle strapped to her back and her graduation cap in hand. A picture of a gun and the words "come and take it" decorated the graduation cap.

"Now that I graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus," Bennett wrote in the post. "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."

he explained in one tweet that the gun is an AR-10 and it "fires at the same rate as any modern pistol," not an assault rifle.

When someone questioned if the police would support Bennett's public display of the firearm if she were black, Bennett replied. "The black officer that was with us during this photoshoot loved it, actually. Give him a call," she wrote.
