A Tennessee college senior, is sticking to her guns after being criticized for this graduation photo, in which she poses sadly with a firearm.

A Nashville woman whose college graduation photo of her with a gun went viral earlier this year is now garnering attention for openly carrying a firearm around the city, a report said Thursday.

Brenna Spencer, 22, had tweeted the photo in April of himself wearing a pink “Women for Trump” T-shirt and lifting it up to expose a gun in her waistband.

“I’ve heard of women who say I inspired them to take steps to defend themselves and their concealed carry permits, Spencer told Nashville’s Fox 17 News. “This was not what I had planned, although I love having a larger platfrom and the empowerment of women to protect themselves.”
