Olympic Medalist Shares Dangers Of Gun Control

posted on August 19, 2016

American skeet shooter Kim Rhode made Olympic history this month in Rio when she became the only woman, and the first Summer Olympian, to ever win a medal in six consecutive Olympics.

Now she’s pointing out how some gun-control schemes endanger the shooting sports, while not affecting criminals at all. In an interview with Dana Loesch on The Blaze earlier this week, Rhode said new California gun laws are making it increasingly difficult—and more expensive—to train.

Referring to California’s new laws on ammunition purchases and gun transfers, Rhode said: "One of the big ones is the ammunition law that was just passed in California, having to do a background check each and every time. I mean, I average between 500 and 1,000 rounds a day every day in training. One of the big things is my sponsor being able to ship me ammo, I'm not sure how that's going to work.” Rhode added: "How do you teach somebody about shooting or, you know, educate them about safety and responsibility if you can’t loan them a gun to even try the sport?”
