Her life as a Conservative gun-rights activist

As a student at Kent State, Kaitlin was an outspoken gun-rights activist. She also held the position of the university’s Turning Point USA chapter.

Turning Point, which was founded in the year 2012 by a 19-year-old by the name Charlie Kirk, identifies as a right-wing youth non-profit that claims to promote freedom on college campuses.

The organization, however, has been plagued by racist allegations.

Bennett’s tenure as the president of Kent State’s Turning Point USA chapter came to an end after she devised a stunt where the club members wore diapers in a bid to ridicule ‘safe spaces’. She resigned when the event was mocked and the national group distanced itself from her chapter.

As a student at the university, the institution’s code of conduct prohibited Kaitlin from carrying firearms on campus. The rule, however, does not apply to guests, who are protected by the Second Amendment to open carry firearms at public universities in Ohio.

However, since she had already graduated, she was no longer a student at Kent State and could open carry firearms at the university, as depicted in the famous Kaitlin Bennett gun photo taken after her graduation.

Bennett is celebrated in pro-Trump circles, and she was even invited to the White House by the Trump administration for a personal tour.
