No Gun Rights Rally for You, says Kent State

KENT, Ohio (WKBN) - Kent State University has told a recent graduate she has to stop advertising a rally on its campus, saying she hasn't properly registered the event.

Kaitlin Bennett's graduation picture, which showed her on Kent State's campus with her graduation cap and AR-10, went viral in May.

She's planning a Second Amendment rights rally for September 29 but Kent State said she didn't get the approval required by university policy.

The rally advertised several speakers not affiliated with the university, according to Kent State. Bennett said it will also be live streamed.

University leaders also said the event doesn't meet a policy mandating that a registered student organization or university department sponsor an event.

Kent State's statement on the rally said the university "upholds the right to free speech and values respectful dialogue from all points of view." However, it said event organizers have to follow the university's rules and policies.

1. Good to see higher education standing up to white wing gun-fanciers and their BS.

4. Growing up in Ohio in the 60s, I loved only miles from Kent State.

A group of us were headed down there for the annual Shakespeare Festival only days before all Hell broke loose.

This vapid and arrogant little girl has NO idea what that did to the communities around Kent State.

5. I was at a National Forenstic League competition just a few weeks before May 4. The only place ...

that is more inappropriate than Kent State is Jackson State. From Akron, where you from?

6. I am not surprised Kent Sate doesn't want a gun rally on campus after their experience with Nixon's

tin soldiers.
