A former Kent State University student and her rifle went viral after graduation photos showcased an AR-15 strapped to her back while walking through campus, but the school has no issue with her shot thanks to a well-timed loophole. The Blast spoke with Kaitlin Bennett, who commemorated her graduation at KSU over the weekend with a photo shoot highlighting her firepower. She took major backlash online, including death threats from people who thought the picture was in incredibly poor taste. Bennett says she took the pics “Simply because I am so passionate about the second amendment and gun rights.”

The Camp Chasm: New Fight over Guns Ignited; Is That the Plan?

A newly-rekindled fight over guns and the Second Amendment within the outdoors, hunting and shooting community has erupted, and the timing – with a critical midterm election just over the horizon – is curious.

Hostilities between “hunters” and “gun rights activists” were rekindled by a recent open letter in the Huffington Post published under the byline of Daniel Ashe, who served as USFWS Director in the Obama administration from February, 2011 to January 2017, when Donald Trump moved into the Oval Office. This “Open Letter from Hunters about Gun Reform” seems almost designed to create a chasm among shooters and hunters, who ought to be on the same side in the fight to protect Second Amendment rights.

“Who Dare, Win!” ~ David Stirling, founder of the SAS. The motto has since been adopted by numerous high-speed military units. In a widely-circulated video (surveillance, apparently inadvertent) of a Mothers’ Day attempted armed robbery ( <– VIDEO here) on a street somewhere in Brazil, occurring yesterday, we see a single, pistol-wielding, male suspect approach a group of women and children standing on a sidewalk, in an apparent robbery, maybe kidnapping, attempt.

We don’t have a final tally of how many of the record-breaking 87,000+ members in attendance at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits at Dallas, Texas, were women, but there is no denying that the female impact and commitment to NRA’s fight for freedom was demonstrable. Whether through participation in target shooting, competitive shooting, hunting or personal protection—or by attending the Dallas NRA show—women continue to flex their Second Amendment muscles.

The Trump state department is making headway to transfer authority from the State Department to the Commerce Department over the approval of U.S. small arms exports. All in an effort to open U.S. firearms manufacturing to international customers. Currently, U.S. firearms and ammunition manufacturers faced a competitive disadvantage in the global marketplace due to inefficient Cold War-era export controls and held over Obama administration era directives.

A Louisiana Senate Judiciary B Committee voted 3-2 Tuesday (May 15) for a measure to clarify that people with concealed weapons permits can carry guns up to a school or university property line, but not actually on campus. The proposal is a substitute for House Bill 602, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, R-Erath, that would have allowed people with concealed weapon permits to carry guns into schools and universities, both public and private. That measure passed the House but faced major opposition, particularly from universities, who threatened to derail it in the Senate.
