Six-time Olympic medalist Kim Rhode says she’ll educate Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom on the firearms he wants to control.

Rhode reached out to Newsom on Twitter to discuss gun control Proposition 63. So far, Newsom’s response has been silence.

The Twitter comments followed the launch of a pro-gun ad in which Rhode talked about the amount of practice required for her to maintain Olympic-winning shooting skills. She said, “If Gavin Newsom has his way, it will make it incredibly hard to keep up my skills.”

Newsom responded to the commercial in a tweet in which he congratulated Rhode on her six medals, then added, “But, did you know Prop. 63 actually exempts ammo bought & used at a range?”

Rhode responded:

She followed that with another tweet:

Rhode then brought the closer, tweeting, “But always happy to teach you about the guns and ammo you don’t trust me to own.”

The NRA watched the exchange and noted that Newsom offered no response to Rhode’s offer. The NRA tweeted, “Gavin Newsom gets schooled by good girl with a gun, suddenly goes silent… Gavin? Gavin?”
