Last week Kaitlin Bennet made headlines for posing in graduation photos with her rifle and graduation cap that read “come and take it”. The Kent State alum added one of her photos to her twitter feed:
Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus. 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. #CampusCarryNow pic.twitter.com/a91fQH44cq

After posting her tweet, several twitter trolls made very serious threats to her. One user even went as far to threaten physical violence against her (the account got blocked). Taking notice, of the abuse she was receiving for standing up for the 2nd Amendment, Oath Keepers has offered assistance.
In a response to her tweet, Oath Keepers stated “Kaitlin, we would be honored to assign some of our retired police officers and special forces veterans to protect you, free of charge. They are low-key pros who know how to do it right. One of them guarded Sarah (@sarahpalinUSA) just say the word. See PM.”
While it’s disturbing that an organization would have to offer assistance to a citizen who believes in exercising their Constitutional rights, the Oath Keepers are a class act.
