Despite the wild amount of hate she received for her pro 2A tweet, Brenna says she followed all concealed carry laws, and doesn't regret the photo in the slightest.

Brenna Spencer, 22, faced a backlash after uploading the post which shows her exposing a weapon in her waist band. Spencer posted the photo on her Twitter account with the caption, "I don't take normal college graduation photos".

"I did think that it would get a little attention but not to this degree", she told ABC News.

Spencer said she also received some respectful messages directly from people who disagreed with her politically, but most users took to the public thread to respond to her photo. The Twitter user felt Spencer's behavior was "irresponsible, reckless, and potentially unsafe".

The Chattanooga Police Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Student Breanna Spencer, 22, celebrated her upcoming graduation from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga by posing for an unconventional graduation shoot promoting her love for President Donald Trump and her right to bear arms.

"I try to stay off the comments, to be honest", Spencer told ABC News. The museum told WTVC that they have a no-gun policy that applies both inside and outside the property. Others noted that the photos were taken outside a Tennessee museum that strictly prohibits firearms.

Spencer, who reportedly snapped the pic outside of the Hunter Museum of American Art and is graduating from UT Chattanooga this Spring, said, "I don't take normal college graduation photos..." in her post to Twitter.

Sporting a Women for Trump shirt, a LinkedIn profile for Spencer lists her as a field director for Turning Point USA, a student-based conservative nonprofit organization.
