Kaitlin Bennett became a hero of supporters of the Second Amendment when she posed at her alma mater, Kent State, for graduation photos. The 22-year-old carried both a cap that said “Come and take it” and an AR-10 rifle.
Ohio is an open-carry state; however, Kent State does not allow students to have weapons on campus, though visitors are permitted to do so. As a graduate visiting the university, she was “finally” allowed to arm herself.
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

Bennett, who founded the Kent State chapter of a right-wing media outlet called Liberty Hangout, was a proponent of students’ being able to carry concealed weapons on the campus.
Now, her more recent tweet, including a simple photo of a young woman posing in front of Manhattan, is drawing attention.
Thank you New York for being so awful that I can't even protect myself with my handgun in your crime-ridden city 🙃 At least your pizza is good though pic.twitter.com/Qr7Qp8g3Hc

Bennett describes New York as “crime-ridden city” despite crime in New York being at its lowest since the 1950s.
She also claims that New York is awful because of its gun laws preventing her from carrying a handgun, despite standing in what appears to be Hoboken, N.J. New Jersey has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation and the lowest gun death rates.
But she is correct about one thing: The pizza is so good in New York. Honestly, the best you will ever have.
Perhaps we can start focusing on the real issues at hand here.
Gun control New York pizza will always be better than Chicago-style pizza.
