San Francisco officials brand NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization’
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization” and urged the federal government to do the same – the latest escalation in the heated rhetoric from Democrats regarding the NRA in the wake of several deadly mass shootings.


The resolution, which passed Tuesday and says the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”

Anything to distract from poop/drug infested streets...

Wonder if the NRA could sue?

Is that within their authority? Does that mean if one is a member of the NRA in San Fran you can be detained and questioned? Sounds like a great test case.

So with their resolution, what action will the city take to protect its inhabitants?

With all the literal crap on their streets one would think e-coli would be a bigger concern.

The document resolves to assess the relationships that those who do business with the city have with the group and says “the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”


Isn't that called discrimination? Taking arbitrary action against a law-abiding organization...

So their cops are not going to be using any firearms then? I don't know of a gun manufacturer who does not support the NRA so...

Probably not the concern that ensuring a Tesla Plug-in garners.

I am truly sad by how far parts of this country have fallen in my lifetime.

Cops, Christianity and gun owners are demonized.

Homelessness, criminality and drug use are considered virtuous.

Homeless tent cities, open drug use, needles and feces in the streets, outbreaks of Scabies and Typhus, these things would have never been tolerated in the country of my youth.

But everything's fine because San Fransisco has just declared the NRA a terrorist origination. :roll:
I will never apologize for being an American.

It is hard to believe that such a large fraction of the population finds nothing wrong with these things. How the mindset switched so dramatically is a mystery to me.

But fortunately not quite as sad of a state as Commiefornia. Yet.

Symbolic ******** reflects the 'effed up group think.

Can we figure out away to make that state slide into the ocean? I hate to curse the fish with them, but enough is enough.

Seriosly, what would need to happen to reverse this cultural shift? What event or series of events would need to happen to snap us out of this catatonic state?

We could hope for global warming to hurry up and raise sea levels, tho the people would just flood neighboring states.
