As we noted in the digest Tuesday, Tennessee senior Brenna Spencer created a kerfuffle on Twitter over the weekend when she posted her senior photo. Eschewing the typical Sears Portrait Studio-style headshot, Ms. Spencer chose to go with environmental portraiture, prominently featuring a couple of things that are important to her.

The image, simultaneously capturing a pro-Trump message and a visible firearm, caused little heads to explode across the Twittersphere. And as Twitchy notes, Ms. Spencer provided inspiration for other women to let their gun-owner flag fly.

Could this be a trend?
ABC News called the police on my friend, Brenna Spencer (probably hoping to get a better story).

Some women were moved to post a snap of their most recent range target to show their support for Spencer.
