Now the NRA is a Terrorist Organisation! By Charles Taylor
Well if they are, as a card-carrying National Rifle Association member (Florida), proud to be redefined as a “terrorist.”
“National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre is responding to the declaration by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voting to unanimously declare the group a terrorist organization with the release of a new video showing members of the NRA to be many hardworking Americans with a variety of backgrounds. The video, provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release, shows LaPierre speaking at the NRA’s 2019 Annual Meeting in Indianapolis to a crowd of thousands of NRA members who are ordinary hardworking Americans.”
Of course, we are; it is insane to classify millions of Americans as terrorists, which is a crazy Leftist thing to do anyway. Fortunately, in the latest news the NRA is suing:
“The NRA has sued both the city and county of San Francisco after its Board of Supervisors branded the gun-rights lobby a "domestic terrorist organization." Filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California, the suit accuses city officials of violating the group's free speech rights for political purposes, and claims the city is attempting to create a blacklist to prevent NRA-associated individuals from doing business there, according to Fox News. The lawsuit asks the court "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree." he San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution last week that said the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” and accused the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.” The resolution called on other cities, states and the federal government to follow suit and also declare the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization.” San Francisco Supervisor Catherine Stefani told the Associated Press she drafted the resolution after a July 28 high profile shooting in Gilroy, Calif., where a gunman entered a festival with an AK-style rifle and killed three people and injured at least 17 more before turning the gun on himself. Gilroy is located about 80 miles southeast of San Francisco. -Fox News.
The NRA last week called the resolution a "ludicrous stunt" and 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 gun-rights organization vowed to "continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans."”
If the San Franny board loses perhaps they will be a wee bit more careful with their resolutions in the future!
