5:46 PM: Bennett responded to the announcement via Twitter:
.@KentState is sending out notices saying they canceled my open carry demonstration, but have no right to keep gun owners from legally gathering on campus. We will be there. September 29th. You can't scare us, and you can't stop us from legally expressing our 2nd amendment rights— Kaitlin Bennett (@KaitMarieox) August 29, 2018
It is unclear whether the rally will still take place, as only advertisements for the event were mentioned in the release.
5:15 PM: Kent State notified Kaitlin Bennett she must stop advertising for an open-carry rally scheduled on campus for Sept. 29.
The university said Bennett did not register the event or obtain approval, which requires sponsorship by a university department or student organization, according to university policy.
In a press release linked on the university’s Twitter account, the university said multiple speakers who are not affiliated with Kent State were involved.
Bennett, whose graduation photo in May with an AR-10 slung across her back went viral, posted an announcement for the event on the Liberty Hangout Facebook page. InfoWars was listed as a guest.
