Yesterday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors crawled over the mounds of feces, threaded their way through a forest of contaminated hypodermic needles and circumnavigated the homeless sleeping on the sidewalks to convene for a very important meeting. They voted unanimously to declare the nation’s largest Second Amendment group a domestic terrorist organization. Not a figurative terrorist organization, and actual one.
“The NRA conspires to limit gun violence research, restrict gun violence data sharing and most importantly aggressively tries to block every piece of sensible gun violence prevention legislation proposed on any level, local state or federal,” said Supervisor Catherine Stefani, who sponsored the measure. A longtime advocate for gun safety, Stefani also introduced a resolution earlier this year that authorized the San Francisco Police Department to use funds from the U.S. Department of Justice to help improve the collection, management and analysis of gun-crime evidence.
“When they use phrases like, ‘I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands’ on bumper stickers, they are saying reasoned debate about public safety should be met with violence,” she said.
This is the kind of kabuki that so typically comes from far left sh**holes, like San Francisco, where real problems are ignored in favor of virtue signalling but it should be a warning to all of us. Consider the implications. If the NRA is a terrorist organization and you are a member, guess what? If you donate to the NRA-ILA, do you know what that potentially means? If you distribute their materials or wear their trademarked gear, what does that make you? And while San Francisco can’t go after the NRA, per se, this could easily become a virtual bill of attainder for such NRA members and gun owners that may exist in San Francisco County.
These people are not concerned about public safety. They aren’t interested in any kind of a negotiated agreement. They are after total victory and the confiscation of all firearms not in the hands of law enforcement, the military, or the personal protection details assigned to safeguard the persons of the people voting on these resolutions.
As I posted over the weekend, talking to these
people about gun control is a chump’s game. Their objective is clear and if you are engaged in this kind of negotiation you are part of the problem.
