Gabby Franco on her competitive shooting sports career & fleeing socialism

“I was going to a very good, you know, path to earn my spot on the Olympic Games. And then came to the realization that freedoms and the new President Hugo Chavez was imposing these new laws and his ideas were against what I believe was going to contribute to my success and the success of the country as a whole. Right? Because at the end of the day, we are like, an ecosystem, you know, and I saw him … expropriating businesses just because he wanted to for no absolute reason he will go out and he would say, Who wants that business? Or what is that jewelry? Oh, they have too much money, expropriate that business…As a young person, I was just a teenager. I even thought it was outrageous. What happened if it was me what happened if it was my parents, my friends, family member — didn’t matter.” — Gabby Franco, competitive shooter

In Episode 181 of District of Conservation, Gabriella is joined by special guest Gabby Franco — Olympic & competitive shooter, mom, wife, proud American, and escapee of Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela.  Gabby recounts her start in competitive shooting, competing in the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympic Games, participating in Top Shot Season 4, fleeing socialism, how she came to appreciate the Second Amendment, and how to be an effective gun rights advocate.
