Liberals are so angry and full of hate, they can’t even take a moment to congratulate an American Olympic champion.
The very first gold medal of the 2016 Summer Olympics down in Rio went to a 19-year-old champion by the name of Ginny Thrasher.
Her medal went in the 10-meter air-rifle competition. Her score was an Olympic record as well. This is one of the most precise and difficult sports in the entire games. She upset defending champion Siling Yi from China and knocked out two-time gold medalist Li Du, also from China.
So the vast majority of Americans were happy for this young lady, as they should be …
American women know how to handle their weapons.

First medal won of the Olympics for the USA is for shooting a rifle. We are such a stereotype.

If you think Ginny Thrasher was impressive in 10m Shooting, wait til you see how the American team dominates in Mass Shooting. #Olympics

An American woman won gold in the 10-meter air rifle. If there’s one thing America leads the world in, it’s shooting guns.

America wins a gold medal in guns. We’re so heinous.

If guns were illegal in America we wouldn’t have been able to win the Gold medal in the first event in Rio. We can’t sacrifice losing. Ever.

Maybe the libs have a reason for hating the Olympians in the shooting sports.
Speaking from Rio, another Olympic shooter, Kim Rhode lashed out against gun control and declared her support for concealed carry.
Rhode intimated that some find it strange that an Olympian speaks out on political issues back home, but she believes the times demand it. She said, “I’m definitely becoming more vocal because I see the need.”
“We just had six laws that were passed in California that will directly affect me,” she said, according to The Guardian. “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.”
