SF Board of Supervisors Declares NRA a “Domestic Terrorist Organization
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has declared the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization” and is urging the federal government to do the same.
The resolution, which was passed on Tuesday, claims that the NRA “spreads propaganda,” “promotes extremist positions,” and “through its advocacy has armed those individuals who would and have committed acts of terrorism.” The SF Board of Supervisors is asking the officials of the city and county of San Francisco to “take every reasonable step to limit … entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business” with the NRA.
Distrct 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani, who wrote the resolution, told KTVU, “The NRA has it coming to them, And I will do everything I possibly can to call them out on what they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization.”
The NRA responded, “This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few. The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.”
