What this college student posted on her social media account had liberals alerting the police. It is ironic, however, the level of hate the left will throw when a Trump supporter shows posts something that they are against. But when they do it, they scream about they’re first amendment rights.
Last year, “D” list comedian Kathy Griffin posted a picture of herself with a fake bloody severed head of President Trump. At first, she couldn’t see an issue with it and thought it was funny. Celebrities came running to her aid on social media. It wasn’t until advertisers that worked with Griffin began to drop her did she actually apologize for the disgusting photo. Griffin later recanted her apology once she felt like enough time has passed.
Last weekend, Tennessee college senior Brenna Spencer posted a picture on twitter that she wanted to use for her graduation picture, it quickly went viral.
Fox News wrote, A Tennessee college senior is sticking to her guns after posting a graduation photo in which she stares wistfully off-camera while lifting her “Women for Trump” t-shirt to expose a firearm in her waistband.
Despite receiving what she called a surprising “amount of hate” on social media, Brenna Spencer, 22, says she has no regrets.
“I know the Tennessee state gun codes …. I carry everywhere that I’m allowed to carry,” the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga student said in an interview.
On Twitter, where Spencer’s profile states that “political correctness offends me,” she posted the provocative photo with the caption: “I don’t take normal college graduation photos…”

The post quickly went viral, with some complimenting the shoot and others calling it reckless.
One woman, Victoria Silva, alerted the police in an apparent attempt to have Spencer arrested
You should learn where carrying in Chattanooga is legal, please. It’s illegal to carry at the Hunter Museum. pic.twitter.com/EogFPqpKzX

@ChattanoogaPD would you like to give us your two cents? Per the thread, this young female is taking a photo w/ a firearm, in an area w/ a posted “no-weapons” policy. This showboating behavior is irresponsible, reckless, & potentially dangerous.

“@ChattanoogaPD would you like to give us your two cents?” Silva tweeted. “Per the thread, this young female is taking a photo w/ a firearm, in an area w/ a posted “no-weapons” policy. This showboating behavior is irresponsible, reckless, & potentially dangerous.”
The photo was reportedly taken outside the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, which bans firearms inside.
Others were supportive — and offered some tips to the soon-to-be-grad.
“Good job supporting second amendment, but you should have a proper holster that holds the weapon securely and fully protects the trigger guard,” a Twitter user wrote in response to the photo.

Spencer responded promptly: “I do! I have a belly band on it’s just not seen in the photo!”
Spencer, who is set to graduate with a communications degree, says she owns several firearms and works for Turning Point, a conservative nonprofit.
It is refreshing to see college-aged kids taking a stand for her rights but more importantly her president. It has become popular among young people to talk down the second amendment and especially to bash the president. We need more Benna Spencers in our colleges and high schools standing up for Trump’s America.
