Activist Kaitlin Bennett made her name with a photograph. She was walking on a college campus with an AR-10 strapped to her back and her graduation cap in her hands. The pretty college graduate was making a point, a particularly valid one, about how just 24-hours earlier her actions would have been illegal. No law had changed, but her status did simply because she was no longer a student.
As a result, it catapulted Bennett to stardom, to some degree, a stardom that she’s made the most of.
However, it also earned her a lot of animosity. There are a lot of people who don’t like her. That’s to be expected. I mean, there are a lot of people who don’t like anyone who makes a political stand.
