Sounds appropriate to me.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution Tuesday declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization” and urging the city to examine its financial relationships with companies that do business with the group.

The sharply worded declaration noted recent acts of gun violence, including the July shooting that killed three people, all younger than 26, at a food festival in Gilroy, Calif., south of San Francisco.

“The National Rifle Association musters its considerable wealth and organizational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence,” it read. “The National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence, and … 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, adopted unanimously by the board’s 11 supervisors, notes many of the statistics that make the United States stand out in terms of gun violence, stating that the country’s gun homicide rate is “25 times higher than any other high-income country in the world” and that 36,000 people in the United States die in gun-related incidents every year, an average of 100 per day.

It also said the city would assess its financial and contractual relationships with vendors that do business with the NRA.

“The City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization,” it noted.

Man, I love everything about this and hope that other cities follow their lead.

    The NRA will love this. Nothing will boost their membership more than look-at-me dumbass politics like this that have no legal standing, and carry no water.

    On top of that, these kind of far left political stunts will only help Donald get reelected.

    The whole country should declare the NRA as a terrorist group, a minority of gun owners holding the whole country hostage to their stupidity.

    I’m a gun owner and despise the NRA. But this stunt will backfire.

      Lol. Uh first Amendment and all. It is amazing how you far left nutjobs feel so entitled that you believe this Country should revolve around your paltry personal views instead of the laws of the Nation that guarantee your rights as well.

      People like you are literally writing the free pass for a second Trump term.

    “The Journal reports, “The new antitrust inquiry by the Justice Department stands to escalate tensions between Washington, Sacramento and the auto industry over plans by the Trump administration to roll back clean-air mandates on auto makers.””
