"Come and take it!!!"


A University of Louisville graduate's photo intended to satirize a gun control advocate, showing her "armed" with a dildo, went viral on Twitter this week.


Haley Davis, 21, posted the photos on Monday in response to Kaitlin Bennett, a graduate from Kent State University who posed with an AR-10 rifle in May to advocate for allowing open-carry on campus.

In the caption accompanying her Twitter post, Bennett said she "should have been able to" arm herself on campus with the hashtag #CampusCarryNow.


Bennett's photo went viral, receiving more than 30,000 likes and nine thousand retweets.

Bennett even challenged Parkland survivor and gun-control activist David Hogg to arm wrestle in June to determine the fate of the Second Amendment. The showdown never happened.

“Knowing I would be graduating soon, I wanted to make satire out of her very bold photos just to lighten it up a little bit. I think comedic relief is very valuable and can ease pain people may be feeling,” Davis said to HuffPost.


Davis told HuffPost that she has “mixed feelings” about gun control, but "would not feel comfortable" arming herself with a gun and does not "believe it’s necessary for civilians to own assault rifles.”

Davis' photos bring to mind the "Cocks not Glocks" organization created by students to mock the perceived absurdity of open-carry laws in Texas. 


On their website, the group describes learning "that it is illegal, according to Texas obscenity laws, to openly brandish a harmless dildo in public."
