NRA Fires Back at San Francisco With Lawsuit Over Declaration Claiming They’re a Terrorist Organization

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has filed a lawsuit against San Francisco over the city’s recent move to declare the gun-rights group a terrorist organization.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, names the city itself and each member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

Last week, the all-Democrat panel of public officials voted unanimously to declare the NRA as a “domestic terrorist organization,” saying they “had it coming” and urging groups to avoid conducting business with them.

The court documents suggest the Board of Supervisors needs a lesson in free speech.

The NRA has accused city officials of maintaining a blacklist and requested that the court “instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree.”

“The government cannot discriminate against citizens based on the viewpoint of their political speech,” the lawsuit contends.

“When this principle is followed, the United States is a beacon to lovers of freedom around the world – to those who fear sham prosecutions, blacklisting, or worse at the hands of authoritarian regimes,” the filing reads. “When this principle is infringed, all Americans should rise to defend it.”

The Wall Street Journal explains that the Board’s “resolution is mostly symbolic,” but the Democrats clear attempt to strongarm businesses into avoiding the NRA and it’s members is something that is “almost certainly unconstitutional.”

But then, when have liberals ever cared much about the Constitution?

Astoundingly, the brazen move to declare the NRA a very specific name comes after the same Board of Supervisors voted that they would no longer refer to convicted felons as ‘convicted felons,’ but rather, a “returning resident.”

They’re strong against law-abiding citizens, weak against actual criminals.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre issued a statement saying the lawsuit “comes with a message to those who attack the NRA: We will never stop fighting for our law-abiding members and their constitutional freedoms.”
