The NRA is not okay with San Francisco labeling them a terrorist organization, and for good reason.
While the Democrat-governed far-left city full of homeless drug addicts splicing (and shitting) on the streets has no problem with real domestic terrorist groups like Antifa, its liberal rulers are going to extremes to push the narrative that Americans who use their Second Amendment rights are terrorists, apparently in an effort to get guns taken away.
But now, it appears like the gun control stunt has backfired for Nancy Pelosi’s district.
They messed with the wrong people over at the NRA, who are now suing the city of San Francisco for their extreme resolution!

Fox News has more to say about the NRA's lawsuit:
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the city and county of San Francisco and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and claims the city is trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there.
The gun rights lobby asked the court to step in "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree."
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution last week that said the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” and accused the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.” The resolution called on other cities, states and the federal government to follow suit and also declare the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization.”
CBS News also stated:
The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday over the city's recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a "domestic terrorist organization."
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA. It asks the court to step in "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree."
Last week, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution calling the NRA a "domestic terrorist organization," contending the group spreads propaganda that seeks to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.
"This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country," said William A. Brewer III, the NRA's lawyer. "There can be no place in our society for this manner of behavior by government officials. Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment."
The Suit names the San Francisco along with all eleven of the city's supervisors, both individually and in their official capacities and calls the terrorist designation a "frivolous insult," reports CBS San Francisco.
