As gun control advocates try everything in their power to get an all-out ban on all guns, it seems one of our Olympians won’t be standing for it.
Proposition 63 in California would regulate and in some cases ban the sale of ammunition and Kim Rhode won’t have any of it.
Reported from Bearing Arms:
“The Olympian, who is on the 75-member board of the National Rifle Association, was joined in the lawsuit by its state affiliate, the California Rifle & Pistol Association, as well as several out of state ammo retailers who can no longer ship their products directly to state resident’s homes under the new rules.
The 31-page lawsuit argues Prop 63, which Second Amendment advocates characterized as “Gunmageddon,” outlaws direct mail order ammunition sales, puts all transfers of ammo under a “burdensome registration scheme,” imposes costly fees and price increases on bullet sales and mires would-be vendors in piles of Sacramento red tape.”
For Olympians and avid shooters, being able to buy inexpensive ammunition is crucial in being able to practice their craft.
The report also stated how Rhode receives ammunition from coaches and sponsors when she travels and its now illegal for her to bring it back to California. This is a ridiculous overreach that is little more than a back door attempt to ban guns through any means necessary.
With any luck the lawsuit will have a positive outcome for Rhode and other shooters in California because right now, it’s looking very grim.
