‘It’s your time to shine’: People are trolling ‘gun girl’ with World War 3 jokes

For Kaitlin “gun girl” Bennett, Twitter users think it is finally her time to shine–on the frontlines of war, should the conflict with Iran escalate to that point.

“The first overall pick in the World War 3 draft out of Kent State University goes to Kaitlin Bennett,” Twitter user @kcd134 wrote in a now-viral tweet.

In a similarly viral tweet, another wrote, “finally it’s YOUR time to shine wya Solider?????????????”

Many agreed, arguing that Bennett has finally found the chance to put all the guns she touts to use.

“She already has so much experience with guns! And she’s been trying so hard to prove her patriotism to everyone by running her mouth with empty platitudes. Now is her chance to shine!!!” Twitter user @SimonIsHott argued.

Users are even flocking to her Twitter account and flooding her comments sections with similar sentiments.

“Ayy let’s go finally time to use ur gun skills,” Twitter user @B17Fortres wrote under one of Bennett’s latest posts.

 

The gun-touting blonde stirred controversy back in 2018 for posing with an AR-10 at Kent State only months after graduating from the university. Her brazen actions won her a ton of support from the right and also helped her land a reporting job with the right-wing, conspiracy-peddling website InfoWars. Aside from spreading gun rights messages–like the argument that students should have the right to open-carry for self-defense on college campuses–Bennett has become a sensation for her anti-liberal videos on YouTube, which frequently attack feminists and Democrats.

“If you support the bump stock ban please block me. Infringements on your right to bear arms are also an infringement on your right to keep your property. Miss me with that ‘yOu DoNt NeEeD a BuMp StOcK aNyWaY’ pansy crap,” Bennett wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of her carrying an automatic weapon.

Though many are dead-set on having Bennett prove that she is no pansy and is ready to take all her guns to the frontlines should a war break loose, she isn’t the only conservative Twitter users want to see first to the fight.

“I look forward to seeing Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager fighting on the frontlines of the impending war with Iran,” Twitter user @LibertyHangout wrote.

Tomi Lahren was another user’s “second draft pick.”
