San Francisco Declares NRA a Domestic Terror Agency
Citing the use of propaganda to misinform and deceive the public on the danger of gun violence and arming individuals who have committed acts of terrorism, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association (NRA) a domestic terrorism organization.
“The National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence,” states the resolution.
This action at the city level is meant to inspire similar legislation at the county and state level, Supervisor Catherine Stefani told USA TODAY.
Designating the NRA as a domestic terrorist organization is justified because the institution is “standing in the way of saving lives,” Stefani she continued.
After calling out the NRA for its “absolutely disgraceful” support of gun violence in the United States, the resolution urges San Francisco to distance itself from the organization by examining local contractors’ links to the institution. It also states that local government agencies should avoid doing business with the NRA or business associated with it.
