August alone saw so much bloodshed with the use of AR-15 rifles that people have literally had enough with the National Rifle Associations’ continual defense of these murder machines, despite terrifying footage on social media and the deaths of innocent Americans.
Less than a week ago, a gun-crazy nut used a legally purchased (despite not being able to pass a background check and being turned down for other weapons applications) AR-15 rifle to slaughter eight people in Odessa, Texas.
Now, the city of San Francisco’s board of supervisors has declared the NRA a domestic terrorist organization after their refusal to act when four people were massacred at a food festival in Gilroy, California in July, including a six year old boy.
The resolution reads:
“All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence.”
District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani is the one who wrote the resolution. She had this to say about the measure:
“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.”
“We had Dayton, Ohio. We had El Paso, Texas. Now we’ve had Odessa, Texas, and people are dying every day in this country. And doing nothing is not an option, and that it what the NRA continues to do.”
At least someone cares about all the people dying because is certainly isn’t the National Rifle Association. The terrorist organization issued a tacky response to the resolution in the wake of multiple mass murders this summer alone. This is literally all they could come up with:
“This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few. The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.”
To the NRA, being homeless is somehow comparable to being shot to death while shopping or hanging out in a bar.
