Olympic Shooter Gabby Franco was censored from LinkedIn for reportedly breaking the site's advertising rule related to guns.  

Bearing Arms reported on LinkedIn's recent actions against Gabby Franco.

Gabby Franco was the first female shooter to represent Venezuela in the Olympics. As an accomplished author, speaker, competitive shooter, and instructor, she is recognized worldwide for her shooting skills and advocacy for the right to own and bear arms. Gabby's 25 years of experience in Olympic, self-defense, and practical shooting have served as a platform to educate and empower thousands of people through live and virtual training across the United States and Puerto Rico. For over eighteen years, Gabby has shown her commitment to promoting the shooting sports by not only participating and winning medals in various competitions, but also sending a message of dedication, sportsmanship, and positive attitude.

Gabby's father wanted to ensure his family knew how to shoot, including his daughters.

When she was a little girl growing up in Venezuela, Gabriella "Gabby" Franco's father learned that the range at which he'd been getting concealed carry training had a junior shooting team. He was so enthused by the activity that he signed up Gabby and her two sisters for the team. In doing so, he set in motion a series of events that led to Franco being the first female shooter representing Venezuela in the Olympics, and later the only woman to progress to the final stage of The History Channel's "Top Shot" championship.
