Looks like Kim Rhode from Minnesota is the first woman to win a gold in Olympic Skeet!
I wonder if Joan Peterson will arrange a parade on behalf of “Protect Minnesota”, or maybe her chapter of the Brady Campaign/MMM, praising her and her “Common Sense” gun usage?
All kidding aside, good work Ms. Rhode! Not only did she bring her Nation a Gold, and set a US Record, but she was 8 Birds ahead of the Chinese Silver Medalist!
I thought I read something by the anti-gunners about the US doing poorly in the shooting sports in the last Summer Games, but a quick search and I couldn’t find it…further everywhere I looked it seemed that the US Historically gets more medals in the shooting games than any other nation. Still could you IMAGINE the domination if they added the shooting sports that Americans REALLY love, like long-range benchrest, Hi-Power rifle, Action Pistol, Silhouette, or 3 Gun? (I’d mention Cowboy action, but I’m not even sure most nations would enter a participant in any of those strictly American sports)
