Kim Rhode, a five-time Olympic medal-winning shooter who is obviously a proud gun owner. After the Rio Olympics began, she spoke out against California’s new gun laws – or “gunpocalypse.”
Liberals are obviously furious about this, but we LOVE what she had to say!
Speaking from the games in Rio de Janeiro, U.S. Olympic shooter Kim Rhode said she is pro-concealed carry and against the plethora of new gun controls passed by California lawmakers and signed by Governor Jerry Brown (D).
According to The Guardian, Rhode said:
We just had six laws that were passed in California that will directly affect me. For example, one of them being an ammunition law. I shoot 500 to 1,000 rounds a day, having to do a background check every time I purchase ammo or when I bring ammo out for a competition or a match – those are very, very challenging for me.
The Guardian asked Rhode about gun control as a response to “mass shootings” and crime in general. Rhode responded:
When you look at these events that have been occurring, they’ve been occurring in some of the strictest gun law countries in the world. You have Paris, you have San Bernardino, which was actually in a gun-free zone, so, yeah, it’s actually something that you take into consideration.
