NRA labeled a 'terrorist' organization by San Francisco

dublinbay z6 (KS)

Ah, finally! speaking Truth to the public!

---------------------------

"The National Rifle Association has withdrawn its lawsuit against San Francisco over the city's resolution labeling the gun-rights group a "terrorist organization."

[. . .]

"This was a baseless attempt to silence San Francisco's valid criticisms of the NRA and distract from the gun violence epidemic facing our country," [City Attorney] Herrera said in a statement. "San Francisco will never be intimidated by the NRA."

The [NRA] group's attorney, William A. Brewer III, was just as spirited in a statement Thursday, saying the lawsuit had achieved what it set out to do.

"The NRA will always fight for the Constitution and will refile if the city tries anything like this in the future," he said.

The resolution approved by the Board of Supervisors in September contends that the gun-rights lobby uses its power to incite gun owners "to acts of violence." It also says San Francisco "should take every reasonable step" to assess ties between its contractors and the NRA.

But the resolution is nonbinding and does not change city law. . . ."

Interesting how the NRA--now that it is no longer infused with lots of Russian money--seems to have lost a lot of its power and influence.

More crumbling of the NRA's empire to come, I believe...
