The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to approve a resolution on Tuesday that declares the National Rifle Association (NRA) as a “domestic terrorist organization.”
District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani, who penned the resolution, said: “The NRA has it coming to them, and I will do everything that I possibly can to call them out on what they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization.”
The declaration from the Board, which consists exclusively of Democrats, cites a duty by elected officials to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
The irony in that statement is so thick, it’s hard to digest. Especially considering that the cesspool of liberalism known as San Francisco adores foreign enemies, opening their borders to them and providing sanctuary at every turn.
The resolution further calls on officials to “take every reasonable step to limit … entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”
It’s not enough to promote a ridiculous stunt, they want to hold a gun to those doing business with perfectly law-abiding members of a perfectly law-abiding organization.

The resolution goes on to state the NRA “spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public.”
‘Misinforms and aims to deceive?’
This is the same Board of Supervisors who just weeks ago decided the best way to make criminals in their city more palatable is to rebrand them and give them kinder, gentler names.
Guidelines voted on by the Board declared that somebody formerly labeled as a ‘convicted felon’ would henceforth be referred to as a “formerly incarcerated person,” a “justice-involved” person or simply a “returning resident.”
Why? Because they want to ‘misinform’ and they ‘aim to deceive’ the public about the criminals infesting their city.
That aside, Stefani wants you, a law-abiding member of the NRA, to know that she thinks you are a terrorist. And you absolutely scare the hell out of her.
The NRA, she said, “knowingly puts guns into the hands of those who would harm and terrorize us.”
Meanwhile, the pro-Second Amendment group blasted the stunt and said Democrats were trying to “distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime.”
“The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans,” they added in a statement.
The Board’s actions are next-level lunacy and make it infinitely more difficult for the left to argue that liberalism isn’t a mental disorder.
