San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “domestic terrorist organization” following the shooting in Gilroy, Calif., where four people, including the gunman, were killed.
The resolution, which local Fox affiliate KTVU reported passed on Tuesday, declares the gun rights group to be a terrorist organization and calls on other cities and government entities to make similar declarations. The resolution itself has no legal weight.
The resolution argues that the group “musters its considerable wealth and organizational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”
“All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence,” reads the resolution’s text.
Sadly, no legal weight, but it really does demonstrate the fervor against the NRA which continues to grow.
