An Indiana college rejected a flier depicting a woman with a gun, according to a Thursday press release.
St. Mary’s College Vice President Karen Johnson informed Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute activist Clare McKinney she could not use the flier to promote campus carry activist Antonia Okafor’s April 12 speech, according to a CBLPI press release The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.
“It was kind of an ultimatum,” McKinney said, describing her meeting with Johnson. “Change the flyer, and Saint Mary’s College will support the event and support me if I am being personally harassed. But if I don’t agree to eliminate the picture of a woman holding a gun, there will be problems.”
Johnson’s statement to McKinney reportedly stemmed from student feedback during an early March “healing circle,” an event held in response to Catholic commentator Mary Rice Hasson’s speech on gender, according to CBLPI.
Okafor successfully advocated for the 2015 Texas “campus carry” law enabling students to carry concealed firearms. The NRA featured the activist in its “Freedom’s Safest Place” ad showcasing the diversity of NRA members.
TheDCNF reached out to Johnson and St. Mary’s College for comment but received none in time for press.
