Kent State Student Strikes Back at School’s Anti-Gun Policies With Epic Photo

Pure awesomeness.

Published

on

Kaitlin Bennett, a recently graduated student from Kent State University is a true American patriot who fully gets why the Second Amendment exists and believes it is a right for all citizens to be able to own and carry a weapon to defend themselves against criminals who desire to commit acts of evil.

Unfortunately, her school doesn’t share the same sentiment, as it refuses to allow students attending the school to carry guns on campus.

The school’s policies just did not sit well with Bennett, who founded the Kent State University chapter of Liberty Hangout, so she decided to protest by snapping a photograph of herself on campus, in her cap and gown, with an AR-10 rifle.

Bennett, who just graduated with a BA in biology, told Campus Reform in an interview that her tweets were inspired by her longstanding concern with how Kent Stateโ€™s policies reduce the ability of students to protect themselves on campus.

โ€œKent State University is a school in which the government shot four unarmed students 48 years ago,โ€ Bennett said, citing the 1970 incident during which the National Guard open fired on a crowd of Vietnam War protesters.

โ€œI believe not only that those four students would still be alive today had they had the right to carry on campus, but that students today would be much safer,โ€ Bennett explained.

Bennett’s views are not shared by all of the students who attend the university, as school spokesman Eric Mansfield made clear in his response about Bennett’s protest.

โ€œThe university has a full-time, certified police force of more than 30 sworn officers who protect the campus,โ€ Mansfield added. โ€œThese officers are visible, well-trained and on duty 24/7 in support of students, staff, and faculty.โ€

Bennett went on to state that campus police can’t always arrive on the scene fast enough to stop a horrific crime in progress, stating that “pulling out a gun is easier than dialing 911.”

As of right now, the school’s policy is that no students can conceal carry or open carry on campus, however, non-student guests are allowed to be in possession of a gun.

Bennett says her days of activism on the Kent State University campus are far from over, as she’s currently planning to stay in the area and fight for liberty with boldness, stating this time she “won’t have to worry about being expelled for expressing my views.”

Trouble In Paradise? Ilhan Omar Just Got Super Bad News About Her District

Uh, oh Spaghetti-Os!

Published

on

No one’s favorite congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has earned a reputation as an anti-Semite for her negative comments toward Israel and Jewish people, just got some very bad news about her district. According to a new report from financial website, 24/7 Wall Street, Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District is the worst congressional district in the entire country for black people. Uh oh. That’s not going to look too good on the progressive candidate checklist, is it? via TheBlaze: Researchers studied several key metrics using data from the U.S. Census Bureau: cost of living-adjusted median household income, unemployment and poverty rates, educational attainment, and homeownership rates. The data showed that Omar’s district has the greatest socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans of any congressional district in the U.S. “Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed. Disparate outcomes along racial lines in the district are largely the legacy of historic racism,” the study said. “Minneapolis is one of several Midwestern cities that enacted restrictive housing covenants and exclusionary zoning policies in the early 20th century. These policies impact residential patterns to this day.” Here’s the real kicker that’ll send liberals into hysterics. Each of the five worst districts for black Americans is represented by a Democrat. It actually gets worse than that. As it turns out, 25 out of 30 the worst congressional districts for blacks are run by liberals. Ouch. That pretty much explodes the narrative that Democrats are the party of the poor and marginalized, doesn’t it? Adding insult to injury, the vast majority of the nation’s most segregated cities are located within these districts. So, tell us again, Mr. Liberal, why in the world would we want you to…

Mayor Gets Pulverized After Posting Ridiculously Thoughtless Tweet In Wake Of Portland Violence

Oh look. Nero playing the fiddle why Rome burns.

Published

on

Just hours after violent rioting exploded in the city of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler posted the most oblivious photograph ever to the Internet, featuring him and his wife, peacefully strolling through the city hand-in-hand as if nothing is going down in his burned out burg. This has led to massive pushback from folks all across the political spectrum, with many calling for Wheeler to step down from office. Honestly, that might not be a bad idea, seeing as how he’s done nothing to put radical left-wing group Antifa in check. via Daily Wire: https://twitter.com/tedwheeler/status/1163209418487394305 “Saturdays in Portland,” however, are a lot different. The day before Mayor Ted Wheeler’s post, Antifa activists targeted journalists and went after protesters, some of whom were members of the right-wing Proud Boys. Below is some of the ugly footage posted by journalist and Quilette editor Andy Ngo and others which has been conveniently ignored by Mr. Wheeler: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162901699318517761 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162828409367515139 https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162844384141832192 The tweet from Mayor Wheeler, unsurprisingly, was ripped online for its oblivious nature. Twitter users, some claiming to live in Portland, pointed to the violent protesting in the city and Portland’s severe homelessness crisis. According to Portland Monthly, 2018 figures estimated 14,476 homeless people reside in the city. https://twitter.com/JNCassavetes/status/1163279121847222272 https://twitter.com/jtLOL/status/1163428604581220354 https://twitter.com/RedTails944/status/1163305483018465281 https://twitter.com/NeilAxelrod/status/1163309474125361152 https://twitter.com/belleofva/status/1163227272930873345 Seems Mayor Wheeler is just a tad bit out of touch with what’s happening in his city. Homelessness, massive violence and rioting, civil unrest. Hardly seems like an ideal time to post a picture of a peaceful stroll through the city. It’s like Nero watching Rome burn and playing the fiddle. The city could definitely use new leadership, perhaps someone with a more sensible approach to dealing with this sort of thing?
