The NRA uses its wealth and strength to “incite gun owners to acts of violence,”declared the resolution adopted Tuesday by the all-Democrat panel, urging the city not to do business with anyone associated with the organization.
It also accused the NRA of spreading “propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence,” and promoting “extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public.” Democrats used to accuse President Donald Trump of lying when he said they were out to take away Americans’ guns. Now they are falling over themselves to prove him right.
However, no amount of gun laws means a thing if the authorities are unwilling to prosecute people due to political considerations. The man who shot and killed San Francisco woman Kate Steinle in 2015 first dodged murder and manslaughter convictions, and last week got his gun possession conviction overturned on a technicality. Critics are saying the only reason for this treatment is that the killer is an illegal immigrant, and Democrats are determined to make San Francisco and California a sanctuary for those.
