“Gun Girl” calls on Trump to lower funding at the University of Ohio because they “harbor terrorists”
The conservative gun rights activist known as “Kent State Gun Girl” calls on President Trump to remove government funding from Ohio University and claims to “harbor terrorists.”
Kaitlin Bennett, 24, went viral in May 2018 after posing with an AR-10 rifle immediately after graduating from Kent State University.
She continued to hold controversy in court while visiting college campuses to talk about arms rights and to make videos in which she interrogates students, who traveled to the University of Ohio campus Monday where she met angry protesters.
The gun-loving Ohio woman posted videos on Twitter after her visit claiming that a ‘riot’ started because of her campus presence and that students’ threw things at me all day, threw hot coffee at me and destroyed @ Joelpatrick1776’s truck straight for the police ‘.

“This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus. Lefts at @ohiou started a riot when @ JoelPatrick1776 and I showed up, and the @oupolice made it happen. I think @realDonaldTrump should remove funding from such universities that host terrorists, “she wrote.
Bennett, who is also the founder of the right-wing group Liberty Hangout, shared her video with radio presenter and self-proclaimed ‘black redneck’ Joel Patrick as they tried to leave the campus by car.
A group of angry protesters swarmed around and shouted and cursed while the driver honked to try to move them.

Later she posted another video in which she walks around the campus with her guard and a large number of demonstrators follow her.
Further messages from students show the general public that Bennett followed to protest against her presence on campus.

“So the state gun girl from Kent came to the University of Ohio and it didn’t go well lol,” one student wrote.
“And in today’s news, the only thing that reached Kent’s gun maiden was uniting our family against intolerance, racism, and fascism. I love #ou and all my bobcat family, “posted another.
Bennett has claimed that the university police did nothing to stop the “violence” against her.
“The @oupolice lied and said no violence had happened and that there were only” allegations that an unknown person was splashing water, “she wrote.
The Ohio University Police released a statement shortly after the visit in which she refuted Bennet’s claims that her arrival led to a riot.
“She attracted a large crowd of people, many with opposing views, who also chose to exercise their first change rights,” the statement said.
“University police officers from Ohio were present during the incident to protect everyone’s rights and security; apart from keeping streets and other public transit rights free, no policemen asked anyone to leave at any time.
“Unlike the claims circulating on social media, the incident did not rise to the level of a riot,” the university police said.
“There was a strong language and allegations that one or more unknown people were splashing water in the crown, but there were no reported injuries or violence and no one was arrested during the event.”
The Ohio University police argued that there was no ‘riot’ during Bennett’s visit

They also stressed that, although “not mandatory,” they had not received a warning that Bennett would visit the campus that “deprived the department of the ability to plan staff levels.”
“As a result, the officers on duty had to prioritize their response to the events as they unfolded, and rightly put everyone’s personal safety above all other concerns,” the statement continued.
Bennett responded with a new call to Donald Trump to remove funding from the school and said protesters “threw projectiles” and “poured hot coffee on us.”
She added: ‘I have been contacted 4 times by the FBI for credible threats to my life. I have received millions of death threats in the last two years. I have been attacked countless times and rebelled twice. But nothing that does the left will make me disappear. Their hatred makes me stronger. ”
Bennett claims that she went to the campus of the University of Ohio to film and tweet a video: “I went to @ohiou to ask presidential trivia questions such as” who were the first 3 presidents. ” It is not my fault that the students there are a bunch of nagging children who must get tantrums because someone with whom they disagree appears. “

Bennett repeated an appeal to President Trump to lower funding for the University of Ohio
On Tuesday, she again appealed to Trump to remove the funding by shouting a photo of a person on the floor and adding: “@ohiou after @realDonaldTrump removes their federal funding to allow students to terrorize conservatives.”
Bennett’s first claim to fame came in 2018 after she protested against Kent State University’s policy of not allowing her students to carry weapons on campus.
While visitors are allowed to carry rifles, the day after her graduation she put an AR-10 rifle over her shoulder to condemn the school’s “offensive” anti-gun policy.
Photographs show Bennett, dressed in a short white dress with the gun over her back. Her graduation cap read in her hand: “Come and take it.”
“Now that I have graduated from Kent State, I can finally arm myself on campus,” Bennett wrote in the post. “I should have been able to do this as a student, especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed on this campus by the government.”
She referred to a 50-year incident when the Ohio National Guard opened fire on the Vietnam war protesters, killing four and injuring nine others.
The photos, which have been shared thousands of times, caused a fierce debate on social media where many criticized Bennett’s view that students should be able to wear because “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to good guy with a gun. ”

On her Liberty Hangout website, which posts inflammatory and fake news messages on Facebook, Bennett continues to embrace her pro-Second views and belief that students should be able to carry weapons on campus.
This is not the first time that a university campus has responded to Bennett in a unfriendly way.
In May 2019, she claimed that “a group of liberals called @ RutgersU 911 to try and get me kicked off campus because they didn’t like a conservative talking to students in front of a communist monument.”
‘5 agents showed up because someone they didn’t agree with was engaged in free speech. Very progressive! she added.
Bennett was interviewing students about student debts for InfoWars, the extreme right-wing conspiracy site of Alex Jones.
