FARRELL: How Many Democrats Think Gun-Owning Americans Are Terrorists?
Are American gun owners potential domestic terrorists? The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association “a domestic terrorist organization.” They blame the “epidemic of gun violence” in part on the NRA, which they accuse of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”
There is no proof that the NRA ever incited anyone to acts of gun violence, and the organization has a long track record of promoting gun safety. But San Francisco can’t really be bothered with facts. If the board of supervisors looked at crime statistics, they might have to admit that most gun violence in this country takes place in cities like San Francisco that already have strict gun control laws.
