Oath Keepers Offers Free Protection to Kaitlin Bennett, AR 10 Toting Kent State Grad, After Death Threats

Kent State Graduate Kaitlin Bennett, Open Carrying an AR10 Moments After Graduating

Oath Keepers is offering a free Personal Security Detail (PSD) for Kent State Graduate Kaitlin Bennett, who open carried an AR 10 rifle on campus on graduation day.  She has since received death threats from rabid anti-gun leftists.   We feel honor bound, as a matter of duty, to step up in direct support of this brave young patriot, by offering our protection, free of charge.  We have highly trained and professional retired police officers and Special Forces veterans who are standing by to serve on this volunteer detail if she accepts our offer.

Below are screen shots from her twitter page showing her open carrying on campus, one of the death threats, and our offer of protection.

Her original tweet, protesting the lack of campus carry on Kent State, by carrying on campus after she had graduated, and hence was no longer a student:

After that tweet, she promptly received death threats from the usual suspects on the left, who are so full of hatred and violence, while accusing her of somehow being full of hatred and violence for daring to arm herself for self-defense (only confirming the wisdom of being a well armed woman!):

And here is Kaitlin’s tweet noting that the account of the threat-maker has been suspended, and our reply offering a volunteer protective detail, free of charge:

We would consider it an honor.   We have several of our most experienced men standing by, including Brian Krogmann, who is a retired Washington DC Metro Police LT and also a Special Forces combat medic veteran.  However, if you are a suitably trained and experienced police or military veteran who is a member of Oath Keepers in Ohio or in a nearby state, and you are willing to assist with this volunteer protective detail if she accepts, please let us know using our email.   Be prepared to be vetted closely and carefully, as usual for such details.

God bless all American patriots who are willing to stand in the gap, and especially our next generation of patriots who will carry the torch forward.  Let us stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them.

For the Republic,

Stewart Rhodes

    1. I didn’t see anywhere where she threatened anybody’s life with that gun but yet people who want to get rid of guns because of violence or threatening her life it’s kind of ironic how the self-righteous assholes think there are far better than anyone else God bless this girl

    2. The whole picture is so American patriot. It sends goose bumps up the spine of any American patriot to have a patriot stand up for their rights and in a public square. Its so comforting to know there is an organization that will stand in the gap and support those who have the intestinal fortitude and the grit to be an American Patriot. I salute the lot of you.

  1. Not really an “intelligent” thing to do to threaten to attack someone that is an ARMED citizen.
    Of course what CORRUPT LIBERAL COMMUNIST anti-American’s are “intelligent”??

  2. Way to go girl. I admire your fortitude in taking a stand as you did. I would love to see more like you doing the same thing.

  3. More proof that the left are peaceful….. as long as you do not disagree with them. Hope this young lady accepts a protection detail for a little while. If you can avoid someone who is mentally unbalanced long enough, they will forget about you and become fixated on someone else. ( personal experience in this matter)

  4. While I fully applaud her courage and dedication to the 2A, I sincerely hope that she if fully appraised of the Facts about the entire Kent State event before choosing to fire on Soldiers or LEOs as the bad guys as the first Tweet in the article suggests. I sense she has consumed too much of the Kent State “tea”. Misuse of government assets definitely needs a solid civilian response, but Sun Tzu’s admonition teaches to Know Your Enemy, Know Yourself. Progressives are once again arming up and demonstrating their demented propensity for violence (as demonstrated by her published responses). Might not want to shoot the people who are there protecting you and the Constitution. Kent State WAS NOT simply a handful of “unarmed” antiwar protesting “students”, but innocents were, as always, used for Prog Propaganda.

    1. First, since the Congress did NOT declare war, it was an UNLAWFUL, unconstitutional war. Second, there is *NO LAWFUL draft here in the USA under the US Constitution.
      Third, they were UNARMED, they should have been ARRESTED for destroying property, etc not murdered, one or two, cannot now remember, shot in the back

      *Daniel Webster: “Where is it written in the Constitution, in what article or section is it contained, that you may take children from their parents and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battles of any war in which the folly and wickedness of the government may engage itself? Under what concealment has this power lain hidden, which now for the first time comes forth, with a tremendous and baleful aspect, to trample down and destroy the dearest right of personal liberty? Who will show me any Constitutional injunction which makes it the duty of the American people to surrender everything valuable in life, and even life, itself, whenever the purposes of an ambitious and mischievous government may require it? … A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the heads of men”..

      THIS, along with Ruby Ridge, etc is WHY knowing what the document that your OATH is to is known by you, or at the very least, the Bill of Rights which not only places LIMITS on those who serve within our governments concerning the American people, so that in an intense situation one will understand when one may fire a weapon when ordered to do so. Those things, are the very things that this nation was founded to PREVENT.

      This is why I say, if you have taken an Oath and not read the US Constitution, h-ll, even the pocket Constitution, as is required so that you may understand what duties are assigned to the different branches, what is DENIED or ALLOWED ONLY under specific circumstances, so that YOU CANNOT BE USED against your nation all unknowingly.

  5. Only a Dim Obama supporting Socialistic coward would threaten this young person, who is obviously a courageous Patriot of the first order and a fine American.

  6. You think you know whom the enemy is. You think it’s the mysterious “deep state”. You think you know who is working SOO hard to disarm us.
    You think you can handle it?

    Wasn’t it Voltaire who said;
    If you want to know who controls you, just look for the ones your not allowed to criticize.

    Think about it.

  7. There are a lot of sick people out there. I’m glad Oathkeepers is stepping up to the plate on this one.

  8. The Libs were probably more miffed at her wearing a dress. And BTB she looks great. Hmmmn, no tattooos

  9. kudos to Oath Keepers for their generous offer of support. Makes me proud to be a member. retired inspector negotiator.

  10. If I wasn,t so damm old i,d be there in a new York minute to help that young lady out. God Bless You Alk.

  11. If just one person in some of the schools that have been attacked where so many have died because of some crazed nut case, one teacher that had been given the training to use a weapon could have saved so many lives. Who ever these lefties threatening this brave girl are cowards.
    Sure they are smart azzs sending emails or twitting but would run if threated themselves.

  12. See the way this game is played?
    There seems to be a well organized pattern of violence and threats of violence and even DEATH to suppress any and all expression that is counter to the progressive subversion of our Constitution / Bill of Rights (ESPECIALLY our Second Amendment rights), and our nations sovereignty.

    As our public expressions in support of our freedoms are LITERALLY beat down – a political party that has “evolved” to play the political game more like the Nazi Party than an American political party, with violent “brown shirt” type mob violence suppressing political opposition, is relentlessly dismantling our rights – repealing the Second Amendment, and transforming it into a limited government “allowance” to low capacity sporting arms that enable NONE of the CAPABILITY to be an effective deterrent to tyranny, intended in the Second Amendment.

    It is dangerous to defend our rights.

    The question is:


  13. Well it is good to see that this young lady was brought up right. If there were more young ladies like this on college campus’ assaults and rapes would drop dramatically.
    Based on the threatening tweets there are obviously those out there that object to a women with the ability to defend themselves. Or those who Choose to honor their constitutional right to bear arms. .
    I raised three daughters and they were all trained to defend themselves by age 12

  14. Wow what a Woman!! Ear marked the original article to figure a way to help her. Glad to see ( we) OK”s have stepped in.

  15. Way to go Oath Keepers, stand strong. The fight is far from over, but they are off balance for sure. Trump knocked them right out of their pathetic comfort zone.

  16. That’s rich, an anti-gunner wishing death upon someone. How benevolent of the bleeding heart liberal who cares so much about humanity.

    1. They gun grabbers care only about one thing and it’s NOT you. They want to take your guns and won’t wake up until it’s too late and they will say I did not mean to create this country without any rights expect for the very select few. If the gun grabbers win, everyone will be toast except for a few that will be rubbing their hands in satisfaction and most gun grabbers will wake up to late to realize that they live in the USSR of America where only the government get’s absolutely everything and most people will be expandable. Oh wait… we are already getting there.

  17. She needs some support in this nation today.

    Now, is there any help for male vets dealing with vast corruption, threats, left wing politics in West Central Indiana? Been searching for years now, have contacted OKs and many others before about any groups or people locally for support or to group up for safety instead of taking all this on alone. Being ignored by every group or veteran service organization, politicians all, to media sure gets old. And I am too old to keep playing games.

    1. I am sorry for your troubles Dotell, I wish one old man like myself could help you.I think it’s the dress, youth, long hair and cute smile. Gets them every time.

  18. God Bless this Lady! This is the future we need. Excellent use of Oathkeeper resources. Start defending those who will stand to protest and things will level themselves out eventually.

    A tid bit to go along with this story..It turns out that another lady on this very same campus was rousted just for talking about carrying her concealed gun. The campus Stasi turned her in when they cleary overheard her say, “I wish they would allow me to carry, I have a permit.”

  19. Supposedly because evil doers commit horrible crimes, including mass murder, with A.R.-15’s, the liberal/progressive intellectual elites and academic aristocrats have labeled A.R.-15’s assualt rifles. Now we see a courageous young lady, Kaitlin Bennett, ready, willing and able to use an A.R.-10 to deter, protect, defend and rescue herself and others from violent harm or death if and when necessary when others are too timid and/or forbidden to do the same. Will those same intellectual elites and academic aristocrats logically label the A.R.-10 something like “Rescue Rifle” for instance? Or would they be too timid to expose the fallacy in they’re reasoning and agenda?

  20. The UN lists gun ownership as an obstacle their global warming agenda! It’s all about building totalitarian world government. As Hilary said, “We’ve got to get the guns!”
