NRA Sues San Francisco Over Terrorist Declaration


Associated Press Associated Press•September 9, 20191,813 Comments

The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday over the city's recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a "domestic terrorist organization."

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA. It asks the court to step in "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree."

Last week, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution calling the NRA a "domestic terrorist organization," contending the group spreads propaganda that seeks to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.

"This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country," said William A. Brewer III, the NRA's lawyer. "There can be no place in our society for this manner of behavior by government officials. Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment."

1. The whole domestic terrorist label is always based on a crimes a group commits.

So for the SF Board to try and hang this label on the NRA looks like straight up slander and libel to me and should look like that in a courtroom as well.

Of course I hope the sue the city of SF into nonexistence.

4. Why didnt they vote to make being homeless illegal?

That’s all they need to do to solve their rampant homelessness.

That or vote on taxing the homeless? Think of all the money they are going to spend defending their hate. I bet they all went home and rubbed one out thinking they did the liberal cult part a favor attacking the right.
