Should America Be One Country?

Local city government declares 5 million of its co-nationals to be members of a terrorist organization

If it split up at least the world would get a relief from its Empire

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors [the local legislature] has passed an official resolution that declares the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “domestic terrorist organisation”.

In the wake of a number of recent mass shootings across the US, and specifically the shooting that killed three people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in San Francisco, Supervisor Catherine Stefani introduced the bill in late July.

It was passed on Tuesday, accompanied by an official declaration denouncing the [mealy-mouthed] NRA and calling for urgent gun control action.

“The National Rifle Association musters its considerable wealth and organisational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence,” the declaration read.

“The National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.

“The leadership of the National Rifle Association promotes extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public, and undermines the general welfare.”

Ms Stefani mentioned the rate of gun ownership in the US — a country with more guns than people, she said — and said that this action was “a step in fighting the negative action of the NRA”.

“The NRA exists to spread pro-gun propaganda and put weapons in the hands of those who would harm and terrorise us,” Ms Stefani said.

“Nobody has done more to fan the flames of gun violence than the NRA.

Every country on earth has video games, movies and mental health issues, and yet only the US has gun violence at elementary schools, at the movies, at Walmart.”

The NRA [5 million members and 10 million sympathizers] responded on Twitter with a video of its chief executive Wayne LaPierre giving a speech at the group’s 2019 annual meeting, and with a call for NRA members to “show them who you are!”.

“There are real victims of terrorism — ask those who lost someone in 9/11,” the tweet read.

“NRA is the fabric of American society. We are teachers, doctors, cops and everyone who fights for America’s freedoms.

“San Fran should be ashamed.”

San Francisco said it would assess its relationships with businesses that are affiliated with the NRA.

Meet the New World (ZioCON/Communist) Order .. Once it is understood Communism and Zionism are both trees split from the same trunk and the same root system, the picture becomes clearer. Both had the same goal: World Domination. Which one won? Putin, a Christian, stopped the ZioCON/Communists (dual citizens) looting of Russia and, when he started to prosecute them, they fled to Israel. Today they’ve shifted their focus to the USA and, and in addition to looting the USA, they’re bringing their Iron Curtain police state down on us. Until Trump, at the risk of being called an anti-Semite, gets the courage to do what Putin did and toss the ZioCON/Communists (dual citizens) out of the US Government, the USA will continue its’ downhill slide and, if they ever get the guns, millions of Christians will die, just like they did to a reported 66,000,000 Christians in Russia.

Most mass shootings in the US are not carried out by angry white men or NRA members, that number belongs to African Americans and are mostly perpetrated against other people of color. The recent article below cites 51% another NYT article observed as many as 75%

What a joke.
These weapons nut cases would exist w/o the NRA.
The NRA collects them just like any org collects and supports like-minded people. eg MAGA and ANTIFA

Looking a bit deeper into the ami society and its glorification of violence, it’s everlasting wars, it’s prison system, it’s lack of of a social society, it’s hollywood glorification of the one wo/man shooter solving all problems, it’s mentally deranged veterans of the MIC wars, its racial wars, its No. and So. mentality would be a better bet.

I’m not an NRA supporter by any means but banning the NRA is a ludicrous non-sensical approach suitable for CA and its fellow travelers. Let’s just legislate it away is less work than trying to solve the problem. The new anti-drug wars are now the anti-gun wars. Childish but typical..
