The viral photo of Brenna Spencer caused a stir on Twitter with loads of hateful responses. Brenna appeared on Fox & Friends to respond to critics:

@foxandfriends: “It’s really really important to stand up for what you believe in. It’s important to voice your opinions.”
Ainsley Earhardt tweeted out about the interview with Brenna. You can tell by the last comment from Ainsley that she’s totally on-board with Brenna and her pro-gun attitude:
Tennessee college senior Brenna Spencer defends posing for graduation picture with gun in her waistband: “I think it’s really important to empower people to show that you should be allowed to protect yourself. Your rights don’t stop at a college campus.” @foxandfriends pic.twitter.com/kDU5fb4VDX

OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON BRENNA:
Every single day, the left proves how unbelievably intolerant they are of anyone who doesn’t buy into their anti-Constitutional views. This Twitter post by a 22-yr.-old legal gun carrying female, wearing a “Women For Trump” t-shirt, is no exception…
A Tennessee college senior is sticking to her guns after posting a graduation photo in which she stares wistfully off-camera while lifting her “Women for Trump” t-shirt to expose a firearm in her waistband.
Despite receiving what she called a surprising “amount of hate” on social media, Brenna Spencer, 22, says she has no regrets.
On Twitter, where Spencer’s profile states that “political correctness offends me,” she posted the provocative photo with the caption: “I don’t take normal college graduation photos…”

“Reed” commented on Brenna Spencer’s Twitter thread, asking her why she would “brag about carrying a gun?”
I’m 100% pro gun but brandishing a firearm for a photo shoot or showing it off to try and look cool is just stupid. They are tools. Why brag about carrying a gun?

Spencer’s reply to Reed was perfect: “Because I’m proud of my second amendment right and I want to empower other women! Absolutely they are tools but I will always brag about being able to carry a gun to protect myself, my friends and my family!”

Instead of having a serious discussion about the right to carry, liberal Twitter users attacked the beautiful 22-yr.-old Spencer by suggesting she get lip fillers, which then turned into a comment from another liberal about how women who support Trump “couldn’t care less about women’s rights.”
Not all of Spencer’s replies to her viral college senior picture post were questions or criticisms, however. As usual, the left (who Michelle Obama once famously claimed “goes high” when their political opponents “go low”) took their opposing views to Spencer’s legal ability to carry and pose with her gun to a new low, that even included death threats. Here’s one screenshot that Spencer retweeted, that she allegedly received from a Twitter user who goes by “safin”:
One of the Twitter users suggested Spencer was breaking the law by carrying a gun on the Hunter Museum property. To his credit, liberal “Justin” whose Twitter profile says he’s a civil rights and immigration lawyer, stepped in to explain the law the accuser, stating that although he disagreed with her, Spencer was well within the law when she posed for her college senior photo:
Victoria Silva took it one step further and suggest the police arrest her. In a tweet, Silva asked the Chattanooga Police Department to take action against Spencer, alleging that she had committed a crime when she carried a “firearm, in an area w/ a posted ‘no weapons’ policy.” at the Hunter Museum. Silva called her actions, “irresponsible, reckless & potentially dangerous.” (Unless, of course, Silva was being assaulted by a criminal or terrorist, and Spencer took action to protect her from them, in which case, she would be calling her a “hero”).
