“Our thought in writing the tweet was to support everyone in their right to bear arms,” [ Iowa State College Republicans president Ryan] Hurley wrote in an email. “People have sickly twisted it. Violence is not our intent.”
Iowa State spokesperson Angie Hunt said the university was aware of the social media post.
“Any suggestion of armed activity by an Iowa State student organization is prohibited by university policy,” Hunt said in a statement. “Any conduct that violates university policy will be addressed in an appropriate manner.”
Hunt declined to say whether any students might be disciplined.
