NRA Fires Back

NRA Battles San Francisco Terrorist Designation By Showing Member Video

The video strikes a chord with many of the people in the United States who don’t subscribe to the anti-gun rhetoric and know that the Second Amendment is their birthright, not a political talking point.

San Francisco may have inadvertently fired up the base.

The National Rifle Association is firing back after the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to label the organization a ‘domestic terrorist’ group.

The exclusive video released shows the members of the NRA who take exception be being painted with the same name of people who slaughter innocent victims.

Breitbart News obtained the video and reported:

 

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre is responding to the declaration by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voting to unanimously declare the group a terrorist organization with the release of a new video showing members of the NRA to be many hardworking Americans with a variety of backgrounds.

The video, provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release, shows LaPierre speaking at the NRA’s 2019 Annual Meeting in Indianapolis to a crowd of thousands of NRA members who are ordinary hardworking Americans.

The less-than-two-minute video opens with a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors bashing the NRA as a “domestic terror organization,” which the city officials voted on Tuesday to do.

“I shake my head and I go ‘what the heck is going wrong in our country?’” LaPierre says in the speech shown in the video.

LaPierre continues, “Let’s give them a real clear view on who we all are: How many police officers do we have here today? Please stand up. Anyone who works in health care in any way, anyone who works in education, if you work in manufacturing, construction, if you work in a trade–maybe a plumber–and how about stay-at-home moms? If you own your own business?

“Firefighters out there, if you’re in the military or a vet, if you obey the law, stand up and be recognized as Americans. I want all the media to look around this room right now and see us for the American people that we truly are. We are law-abiding Americans who believe liberty is a blessing. We love our country.

“I promise you we’re never going to stop fighting for your right and folks just like you all over America that have the right to defend themselves. So, we’re not going to give up or apologize that in a dangerous world, the Second Amendment is often all we have. Every one of these Americans are what we’re about.”

The NRA has fiercely criticized the San Francisco decision, tweeting out videos and statements ripping the leftist California city for its extreme measures:

This stunt is an effort to distract from the problems facing #SanFrancisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and petty crime, to name a few. Their wasting taxpayer dollars to declare 5M law-abiding Americans domestic terrorists, and it’s shameful.https://t.co/Wn6JccpO2H

The NRA is including a hashtag, #IAmTheNRA, in several of them too:

.@realAnnaPaulina is a veteran, a wife, and an @NRA member. She is upset with the San Fran elitists who declared NRA a “terrorist org.”

Start focusing on real issues. “Like the homelessness, the drug problem, and the human feces that you have infecting your streets.” #IAmTheNRA pic.twitter.com/Rw0DP2ZusX
