San Francisco Passes Resolution Labeling NRA 'Domestic Terrorist Organization'

San Francisco District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani introduced the legislation and drafted the declaration.

San Francisco, CA – The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to declare the National Rifle Association (NRA) a domestic terrorist organization on Tuesday.

“The National Rifle Association musters its considerable wealth and organizational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence,” the declaration read, according to The Washington Post.

“The National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence,” the resolution continued. “The leadership of National Rifle Association promotes extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public, and undermine the general welfare.”

The largely-symbolic resolution was introduced by District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani following the mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival on July 28, the [San Francisco Chronicle](https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/SF-supervisors-declare-NRA-a-domestic-terrorist-14412974.php?utm_campaign=CMS%20Sharing%20Tools%20(Premium%29&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral&psid=lcA66) reported.

“It is time to rid this country of the NRA and call them out for who they really are,” Stefani said. “They are a domestic terrorist organization.”

Stefani said that the NRA is to blame for all recent mass shootings.

“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,” her declaration read, according to FOX News.

Stefani further alleged that the NRA is a misogynist organization because it has refused to back proposed legislation expanding gun restrictions for certain domestic abuse and stalking cases.

NRA spokesperson Jennifer Baker previously said that the proposed restrictions Stefani was referring to were “too broad and ripe for abuse,” The New York Times reported.

“[For] many of those ‘offenses’ — and I’m using air quotes here — the behavior that would qualify as a stalking offense is often not violent or threatening,” Baker said at the time. “It involves no personal contact whatsoever.”

“How it’s written right now, you could be convicted for a misdemeanor stalking offense for a tweet that causes someone emotional distress and then you would be prohibited from owning a firearm,” she added.

In addition to declaring the NRA to be a domestic terrorist organization, the board also urged city leaders to look into their financial relationships with companies that also do business with the NRA, The Washington Post reported.

“The NRA exists to spread disinformation and knowingly puts weapons in the hands of those who would harm and terrorize us by blocking common-sense gun violence prevention legislation, and by advocating for dangerous legislation like stand-your-ground laws, permit-less carry, and guns in schools from kindergarten on up through university,” Stefani told the San Francisco Chronicle.

She also alleged that the group “conspires to limit gun violence research, restrict gun violence data sharing and…aggressively tries to block every piece of sensible gun violence prevention legislation,” according to The Washington Post.

The NRA blasted the board’s declaration, calling it a “reckless assault on a law-abiding organization, its members and the freedoms they all stand for.”

“This is just another worthless and disgusting ‘sound bite remedy’ to the violence epidemic gripping our nation,” NRA spokesperson Amy Hunter told The Washington Post. “We remain undeterred — guided by our values and belief in those who want to find real solutions to gun violence.”

The NRA also referred to the resolution as a “ludicrous stunt” aimed to “distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

“The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans,” the group added.

Of course, they did. It's California, after all. I guess that wild-eyed look made mainstream by a certain young Congresswoman makes it easier for us to identify crazy politicians.

Why would anyone live or work in California, aka Russia 2.0? I mean really? It's become a third world country of elitist, rich Democrats and their drug-addicted, welfare-scamming, illegal alien-protecting lemmings. A Brave New World order of chaos is coming to the lefties; I know, a contradiction in terms, but they thrive on the second law of thermodynamics.

That picture of Stefani makes me think she's wired too tight and needs a strong sedative.

Want to know where taxpayer money in San Francisco goes to fund? Hint: to screen movies asking the question “why don’t we murder more white people?”

They also declared plastic straws to be a domestic terrorist organization, while they hand out 4.5 million free plastic syringes annually.

How about we kick kalifornia out of the US. Let them be their own country. Then impose tariffs and cripple their economy. Oh, and don't forget to build a wall to keep those krazies in. Just leave it open at the Mexican border so they can have as many cheap labourers as they like.

Is the board of supervisors legally able to label anyone a domestic terrorist group? isn't that grounds for a defamation lawsuit? What criteria did they use to publicly claim this? Sounds like more liberal BS from the great state of Kalifornia

Meanwhile ANTIFA and BLM, the people that burn Colleges, Attack innocent OLD PEOPLE and Threaten drivers on the street is STILL OK WITH THEM...Disturbing

Please wait until after February so I can leave. I am born and raised in California and can't wait to leave. I will NEVER live in this state again as it has become a socialist state. SF has a lot of nerve taking this action since they refuse o do anything about BLM and ANTIFA and their violence and intolerance for anyone that believes differently then they do. But then again the leadership of SF thinks allowing people to walk around naked and shit on the streets is OK so I guess we know all we need to know about the so called leadership of SF.

Yet the homelessness and the poop/needle infested streets are not a priority. Stepping in all that progression every walk down the street would sure put a flower in your hair. Jeez Louise - I am definitely getting old!

"San Francisco District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani introduced the legislation and drafted the declaration."

Do these madcaps truly believe this tripe or is it just for the fanfare and notoriety it brings ? Thinking its a bit of both.

"incite gun owners to acts of violence." I don't know of a single act of violence by an NRA member. The acts of violence all seem to be by raging liberals.
