There were those who saw irony in this first American Gold Medal.
19-year old college student, Ginny Thrasher, won the first gold medal of the Olympics in shooting. Talk about a liberal’s worst nightmare.

Most people gave a shout out and a congrats to her but in the upside down world we now live in there were Twitter comments from the haters.
If you think Ginny Thrasher was impressive in 10m Shooting, wait til you see how the American team dominates in Mass Shooting. #Olympics

Ginny did an amazing job and we as Americans should be proud of her. It’s too bad her accomplishment should be tarnished by liberals who really have no idea what they’re promoting. Gun control? Um, seems to me that’s how Hitler took control of his country. Gun control means no self defense, especially against a tyrant government. I’d like to see how these gun controllers lived a hundred years ago or before. Even children back then were using guns to shoot game for supper. Of course, that rials the PETA folks who thinks no animal is for eating. But then that’s a whole other controversy.
A rifle event where they shoot at a target is a SPORT. Get over it people!
