San Francisco Passes Resolution Calling NRA 'Domestic Terrorist Organization'

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday calling the National Rifle Association a "domestic terrorist organization." The resolution also urges local organizations to stop doing business with the gun rights group.

 

"The leadership of National Rifle Association promotes extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public, and undermine the general welfare," the resolution says. 

"The National Rifle Association through its advocacy has armed those individuals who would and have committed acts of terrorism."

The NRA has consistently opposed gun control efforts and financially supported politicians who oppose them as well. NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre spoke with President Trump on the phone last month in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Soon after the call, Mr. Trump backed away from his previous calls for stronger background checks — something the NRA has lobbied against.
