The NRA is fighting back against the efforts of the commie City of San Francisco to push gun owners into the fringe. And they’re doing it with a lawsuit.
Here’s more from The Hill:
The National Rifle Association on Monday sued the city of San Francisco over a declaration deeming the lobbying group a “domestic terrorist organization,” according to The Associated Press.
The city Board of Supervisors passed the resolution last week, with Supervisor Catherine Stefani saying she was moved to draft it following August’s shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
In the lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of California, the NRA accused the city of maintaining a blacklist, asking the court to “instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree.”
“This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” said William A. Brewer III, the NRA’s attorney. “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.”
CEO Wayne LaPierre said the lawsuit “comes with a message to those who attack the NRA: We will never stop fighting for our law-abiding members and their constitutional freedoms,” according to the AP.
Well there you go. I’m not sure how successful the lawsuit will be, but I’m glad they’re pushing back against the idiotic designation by a city that is mired by homeless crime and drug addiction. What a stupid thing to focus on and pretend that their action does anything at all to advocate for their cause. Morons.
