4 September, 2019 – San Francisco – The San Francisco Board of Supervisors labelled the National Rifle Association a Domestic Terrorist organization. Now the NRA and San Francisco are locked in a legal skirmish with the NRA suing.
Not long after the NRA announced it would sue, a US Senate sub committee issued a lengthy report setting out their conclusion that the NRA is a Russian Asset.
It seems San Francisco were ahead of the times on this one. The Board set an excellent precedent, and we must not allow the NRA to tear it down.
The San Francisco resolution called the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization”, contending the group spreads propaganda that seeks to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.
“They continue to stand in the way of gun violence reform and people are dying because of it,” said Catherine Stefani, the San Francisco supervisor who drafted the resolution not long after a mass shooting at a garlic festival in nearby Gilroy, California, left three people dead.
Is the NRA a Russian asset? The Senate’s committee says yes. Is the NRA a terrorist organisation? Its actions fit – a terrorist is defined as “a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” As the NRA’s high-profile spokespeople past and present make death threats against Democrats and journalists – San Francisco certainly has a point.
Looking at the despicable actions of these NRA players past and present, it’s hard NOT to conclude the NRA is terrorist.
Ted Nugent, NRA Board of Directors: Aside from calling Parklands survivors who campaigned for gun law reform ‘soulless liars,’ he suggested Democrats should be shot on sight:- “…Just know that evil, dishonesty, and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least,” …There are rabid coyotes running around. You don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun. Keep your gun handy, and every time you see one, you shoot one.”
Dana Loesch, assistant to the executive vice president for public communication with the National Rifle Association since 2017: Advocated ‘curbstomping’ journalists in 2016, i.e. crushing their skulls and killing them. Made NRA video telling journalists ‘their time was up’.
Oliver North, NRA president (briefly; now in legal action against the NRA): When a federal employee, arranged sales of guns to Iran and cocaine to terrorists

I wanted to THANK YOU for calling the NRA exactly what it is: A domestic terrorist organisation (by the way, one funded and co-opted by Russia). A recent senate subcomittee report quite rightly calls the NRA a Russian Asset. As to terrorism – Nugent, Loesch, Oliver North (now departed and suing the NRA) have all called for murder against American citizens (Nugent – all democrats; Loesch – journalists). They are a terrorist organisation, and I hope my state will take your lead. Their lawsuit against you will fall apart in light of the Senate findings and the facts Thank you for your brave stance!
@sfgov THANK YOU for calling the @NRA what it is – a domestic terrorist org. I look forward to their lawsuit against you failing – not least as the Senate sub-committee report finds the NRA is a Russian asset beyond doubt. Nugent, Loesch called for murder – that’s terrorism.
