I don’t take normal college graduation photos... pic.twitter.com/eI1NvLFYHs— Brenna Spencer (@BrennaSpencer) April 7, 2018
The [above] picture is of Brenna Spencer, 22, showing a handgun wedged into her jeans' waistband has triggered strong reactions. Spencer claims she wanted the photo to “show who I am as a person."
Once social media got a hold of this mixed feelings spewed out all over the place!
Using a gun to make a political point is irresponsible gun ownership.— DadForChange (@DadForChange) April 11, 2018
I wish more women realized how much of their agency is lost when they depend on the state to keep them safe. Here's a woman who embraces the inevitable responsibilities of life and liberty in a free country. She doesn't rely on anyone else for protection. https://t.co/1C47VH7GVk— Nolan Ryan Snyder (@NolanRyanSnyder) April 12, 2018
Love this photo and so proud it’s taken in Chattanooga!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️— Autumn (@autumnparmley) April 8, 2018
I don't know anything about Brenna Spencer and don't care if she wears a "Women for Trump" t-shirt while strapped with a gun. What bothers me is the reflexive racism that allows people to see Spencer as a "patriot" but to see an armed black woman or man as a criminal threat. https://t.co/cgw25KhgIO— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) April 11, 2018
Great picture. I have high hopes for #women like you, who are empowered to #DefendTheSecond and themselves. It is a #Blessing to live in the #USA where the #1-2A are protection from #bullies #criminals #tirany #MAGA #KAG #1A #2A #GodBlessYou #GODBLESSTHEUSA https://t.co/0NcANjsAeI— Martha Mulko (@mulko_martha) April 11, 2018
What do you think about the photo? Are you for or against this?
