Her post quickly went viral and some Twitter users were calling her reckless for taking the photo–
@ChattanoogaPD would you like to give us your two cents? Per the thread, this young female is taking a photo w/ a firearm, in an area w/ a posted “no-weapons” policy. This showboating behavior is irresponsible, reckless, & potentially dangerous.
A concerned citizen ????

One user, Victoria Silva even tagged the Chattanooga Police Department in her tweet in an apparent attempt to have Spencer arrested.

“I know the Tennessee state gun codes …. I carry everywhere that I’m allowed to carry,” Spencer said in an interview.
The photo was reportedly taken outside of the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, which bans firearms inside.
Although liberals were freaking out over the 22-year-old holding a firearm in her waistband, other Twitter users were complimentary —
I do! I have a belly band on it’s just not seen in the photo!

Spencer works as a field representative for the conservative nonprofit Turning Point and says she owns several handguns including the one featured in her photo.
Spencer deserves applause for defending herself against angry liberals and practicing her Second Amendment rights.
