So now liberals are labeling groups of people “domestic terrorists” because they don’t agree with our politics. Remember, these are the same people who tell us that red flags laws won’t be abused.
The left will stop at nothing to take away our Second Amendment and due process rights.
From Yahoo: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution on Tuesday declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorism organization” due to its opposition to more stringent gun-control legislation.
The resolution accuses the NRA of not only resisting legislative reforms that its drafters believe would help curtail the country’s “epidemic of gun violence,” but also of “incit[ing] gun owners to acts of violence.”
“All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence,” the resolution says.
The resolution also declares the Board’s intent to “limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.” It was drafted following a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival last month that resulted in the deaths of three people, according to local Fox affiliate KTVU. (Just disregard the fact that the shooter’s gun was ILLEGAL to use in California; hence HE BROKE THE LAW.)
The NRA responded to the provocation by accusing the Board of seeking to distract from the city’s shortcomings.
“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 statement said, according to KTVU. “The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.”
The partisan battle over gun control has escalated in recent weeks due to mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, Dayton, Ohio and, most recently, Odessa and Midland, Texas.
Congressional Democrats and their colleagues seeking the presidency continue to demand universal-background-check legislation. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, meanwhile, remains hesitant to endorse any specific legislation but said Tuesday that he would be eager to support any reforms backed by the White House.
Over at the SF Gate there are plenty of comments regarding the Board’s action. Seems many people are calling for the bureaucrats to worry about cleaning up their own sh*thole of a city before they start their virtue signaling. Some of the comments:
“The city is turning into a dump and this is where the city leaders pour their time, effort and attention: Nothingburger proclamations and worthless virtue signaling of the highest order.”
“Oh geez louise. Do something that means something you morons. I am no friend of the NRA but this is useless.”
“Unbelievable that these blowhards are wasting my taxpayer dollars on stupid measures. Are you now going to arrest card-carrying NRA Members in SF?”
“Every time I think this city has reached a nadir of stupidity, the Board of Supervisors proves me wrong…”
“How do members of the Board of Supervisors have time for a national campaign against the NRA, when just a few blocks from City Hall there are plenty of people with guns who never passed a background check. Take a look at @SFPDTenderloin tweets to see photos of people who are much more dangerous than the NRA. The Board of Supervisors should focus on doing their jobs and getting the guns and drugs out of San Francisco neighborhoods.”
“The Board of Supervisors is itself a terrorist group for doing absolutely nothing and turning this city into a pigsty stinking capital of the world. They should be ashamed of themselves for stealing tax payer money by disguising as a salary. Oh BTW, they just gave themselves a raise next year.”
