NRA & All Its Members Declared ‘Domestic Terrorists by San Francisco Board

Opinion

NRA Members Pray to God before Annual Meeting

San Francisco – -(AmmoLand.com)- By unanimous vote, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has adopted a resolution declaring the embattled National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization,” and is urging the city and county of San Francisco to “encourage all other jurisdictions, including other cities, states, and the federal government, to adopt similar positions.”

Yes, they are talking about you and the other five million law-abiding NRA members of America.

The resolution, authored by Supervisor Catherine Stefani, alleges that the NRA “spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.” The five-million-member association, which has been in turmoil over the past several months, has a leadership that, according to the resolution, “promotes extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public” while undermining the “general welfare.”

NRA provided Ammoland News with a rebuttal statement from spokesperson Amy Hunter.

“This is just another worthless and disgusting ‘soundbite remedy’ to the violence epidemic gripping our nation. The same kind of attack the NRA has confronted in New York,” the statement says.

“This is a reckless assault on a law-abiding organization, its members, and the freedoms they all stand for. We remain undeterred – guided by our values and belief in those who want to find real solutions to gun violence.”

The San Francisco vote comes as Congressional anti-gunners are ramping up their campaign to pass more gun control laws, capitalizing on public reaction to recent high-profile mass shootings in Texas, Ohio and California.

In the most recent of these incidents, authorities have determined that the West Texas gunman who killed seven people in Odessa acquired his semi-automatic rifle through a private sale, according to CNN. This will undoubtedly become a talking point for proponents of so-called “universal background checks” and those hoping to ban semi-auto rifles.

The gunman was fatally shot by police after leading them on a wild chase that began when he opened fire on law enforcement officers who stopped him on an apparent traffic infraction. That man, identified as 36-year-old Seth Ator, had been fired from his job earlier in the day.

San Francisco has attempted twice to ban certain firearms within its borders, but both times the city was defeated in court by legal actions involving the Second Amendment Foundation, which was joined in one lawsuit by the NRA.

The 2½-page resolution suggests that the NRA is also enabling hate groups. The full text may be read here.

San Francisco : Declaring the National Rifle Association and all it's members as a Domestic Terrorist Org

“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 document claims.

In an interview with KTVU News, Stefani said “The NRA has it coming to them, and I will do everything that I possibly can to call them out on what they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization.”

Stefani reportedly wrote the resolution in the aftermath of the Gilroy Garlic Festival mass shooting by an individual who violated existing gun laws. Authorities determined that the Gilroy gunman legally purchased his firearm in Nevada, where he had been living, but brought it illegally into California, where such rifles are banned. He entered the Garlic Festival grounds by apparently cutting through a fence to avoid security at the gate. Police who were present at the festival shot him several times before he took his own life.

KTVU reported that NRA’s Hunter also provided this statement:

“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-living Americans.”

Perhaps one of those problems San Francisco faces is news reports that just can’t get away from blaming guns instead of people, as in this KTVU news report about the man involved in the 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle on the famous Pier 14 while she was walking with her father. Jose Ines Garcia-Zarate still faces prosecution in relation to the case, but here’s what the news agency reported:

“An undocumented Mexican immigrant who held the gun that killed a San Francisco woman on a city pier four years ago still faces two federal gun charges, even though a California appeals court has overturned his state gun possession conviction.”

In San Francisco, it is apparently always the gun’s fault, invariably shared by an organization and all of it's members defending the right to own guns.

I don’t know about you guys but I’m going to throw something in from there useless book of commie scum. I’m buthurt “a word I’m sure they are familiar with”over the allegations brought forth by the city of San Francisco and I believe we should sue them for defamation of character… I said buthurt

I think that WE THE CITIZENS should declare the San Francisco Board as TRAITORS to the Constitution because they all Violated the first sentence of their “Oath Of Office” which is Both a State and Federal Felony.

the 2nd Civil War has been going on for over 3 yrs now…although we’re just in “the political stage” of it, as of now. look back to 1854 and the events leading to the 1st civil war in 1861.

Strangely it seems the repubs are the “rebels” this time, and the dems are ‘the Union”, so to speak.

if fighting breaks out, it’s going to be particularly bloodier this time I predict.

I’ll probably get more flak for this, but… I still believe we’re beyond any political solution to the communist cancer metastasizing in our nation. I don’t believe voting is going to help as you can’t trust Republicans either. This country is clearly going down the fascist/communist rat hole. I believe we either have to fight an actual war or resign ourselves to be subjects (slaves) to communism. We are at the point of the colonies right before the revolutionary war, Germany right before the Nazi takeover. I may be wrong and I hope I am, but at this point I… Read more »

Time for all NRA members to start a CLASS ACTION against the city and all the members on the Board to hold them fully responsible for tarnishing the reputation of the NRA and the membership.

I vote that Californication be classified a “Terrorist State,” and nobody allowed to enter or leave it! The crazies there have brought back ‘medieval’ diseases, typhoid, the black plague, etc. ad nauseam – any people there are subject to infection and spreading it nation wide – SHUT “that border” down, NOW!

The San Francisco communists got this bass-ackwards, as usual. To my knowledge, no NRA member has ever been responsible for a mass shooting. Mass shooters are invariably demorats. It is time to outlaw demorats…not guns!

If you were to replace “The National Rifle Association” with “The Democratic Party” then the San Francisco resolution would be 100% true and correct. There is a reason it is called “The Left Coast”.

Another great write up Dave. It’s funny how such moronic libtarded organizations such as this particular group of morons in SF refuse to label violent, fascistic groups such as antifa as “domestic terrorists” – yet fight to criminalize and continue to slander law-abiding and citizen rights-protecting groups like NRA. Then they go on and fight to protect the non-existent rights of other law-breaking groups, such as illegal aliens. These people are a very special kind of stupid, and should have no clout in America. These people provide a great deal of material to the world, making a laughing stock out… Read more »

Do you think the NRA will still keep compromising with these evil people?

I do. I think their leadership is so bad they think they can surrender more rights to appease them to be liked better. It’s myopic and absurd to even think that.

I’ll respond for them. The S.F. board of supervisors should replace the phrase NRA with U.S. constitution in their resolution. All the NRA is doing is to try to keep American’s rights from being violated.

Riiiight… Let’s look at the NRA’s track record, shall we?
1934: National Firearms Act. NRA Approved.
1968: Gun Control Act. NRA Approved.
1986: Hughes Amendment. NRA Approved.
1994: Assault Weapon Ban. NRA Approved.
2018: Bump Stock Ban. NRA Approved.

With “friends” like the NRA, who needs enemies??

These are the same tactics used by all authoritarian regimes. We need to recognize,understand and point this out.Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao used this type of thing to disparage groups they did not like or hoped to put down. We need to tie these modern day authoritarians to those authoritarians. Not to do so is a disservice to the people of the United States.

CALL THE NRA ILA and demand a defamation of character or libel class action suit..if San Francisco can get away with this kind of Injustice, it will happen in every liberal City in America.. that will cause vigilantes to take so-called Justice into their own hands.. just like they do against MAGA hats and shirts.. the municipality May settle quickly and… Read more »

@31, While I admire your enthusiasm, that is not how class actions work. NRA can file on behalf of itself. That would be a class of one.
The members could all contact a Ca. lawyer and files for themselves. That would be up to five million tort claims. Then those five million cases could be consolidated.

I called the NRA ILA and suggested the lawsuit idea..the NRA apparently has taken a very weak position on this.. They are saying that it’s just an opinion for a metropolitan municipality to call 5 million people terrorists without proof or Reason .. San Francisco is a form of government NOT a free citizen with free speech.. They speak for the people of San Francisco collectively.. Do you think that there’s people in San Francisco that feel differently than their city government..If the NRA doesn’t take a very strong and proactive position on this, it’s time to put them out… Read more »

Writing this because I have been unable to find anyone else talking about it. Currently in the White House, there is a push going on to use violations of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Amendments of the constitution as a basis to deny people rights to the 2nd Amendment. The name of the project is called HARPA, or Health Advanced Research Policy Agency, and is being pushed by the Suzanne Wright foundation. Suzanne Wright was the wife of Bob Wright, the former CEO of NBC. “Ahhh starting to make sense now) The idea being pushed to Trump, who is reportedly… Read more »

I have a better idea: keep the state and instead DEPORT ALL THE COMMIECRATS and their ILLEGAL ALIEN BUDDIES!! We could go nationwide with that, too! No more MS13, no Antifa, no BLM, etc.!! Oh and to pay for all the deportations, seize all their assets including freezing their bank accounts!

Then all we have to do is level all the shithole cities that the Commiecrats have ruined, and build on the rubble!!

@Will Flatt Better idea, and more constitutional as well. Remove all tax payer subsidizing of states, and make states pay for their own cities and initiatives. Reign in welfare, and solidify the constitutional protections against government, clean out the judicial branch and reset them back to their original duties, repeal direct election of senators and go back to the elector system. The people outside of the cities wont elect electors to install city backed senators, the states wont be able to rob peter to pay paul to cover all the welfare programs they want to do to buy votes politically,… Read more »

This is nothing new. https://seeingredaz.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/janet-napolitano-right-wing-extremists-pose-national-security-threats/ The difference there is that ANTIFA IS A TERRORIST organization.
