Listen: San Francisco And Hundred Twenty Nine Kilometers discussed on Phil Valentine
"In the last week or so. that San Francisco did you really said about the N. R. A. is the call of domestic terrorist organization. and so I saw someone needs is so I mean that this goes beyond opinion or what have you. well the national rifle association as soon as San Francisco home this as of yesterday over the city's recent declaration of the gun rights lobbies a domestic terrorist organization is a lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California. it accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone a socially within our it back can I just add this to it well I think it's important. when we're talking about the NRA and people W. a lobbyist and the lobbyists for than what's in it for the NRA other than freedom. you ever thought about them I mean you can understand the lobbyists for big pharma you know they're they're bre billions upon billions of dollars to be made I'm not saying something wrong with lobbying for big pharma you can sing. lobbying for the farmers. there's money to be made. what is there to be main for the NRA because the NRA is not the gun industry the and the the the NRA is gone owners other words the NRA does not represent Smith and Wesson. or sig Sauer the NRA represents me as my right to own a firearm and the Kerry fire. and so it's a it's and I know you say this I see this and people get mad about this but it is V. oldest civil rights organization in the country. because that's what it is it's a civil rights organization. when we talk about civil rights were talking about constitutional rights will likely in EE PC national association for the Vance with political correctness us than simply a civil rights organization because they're fighting for the constitutional rights of their constituents in this case it would be black folks which started out to be at the end of being just liberal people so no matter what color you are as a matter right they don't represent black folks anymore that's why I call in the in the Lee PC it's all about political correctness. you look at another civil rights organization the anti defamation league which I would put the same categories in the lease the P. they don't represent Jews anymore they represent liberal Jews if you have to be conservatives you're the one having to do with you. but be that as it may these are civil rights organizations ostensibly and that's exactly what the NRA is what is the benefit of the NRA for what they do the NRA doesn't benefit its constituents benefit and that's those of us who want to preserve the second amendment. it is a constitutional civil rights organization it's not a terrorist organization domestic or otherwise like. the city of San Francisco would have you believe so I think they have a huge Casey the only question is can you sued the government. well it asked the court to step in to instruct elected officials and freedom of speech means you cannot silence for punish those with whom you disagree so they're not really looking at I guess monetary. remedy here they're looking at a a for a constitutional remain in other words don't for the freedom of our constituents which are the American people. to exercise their right to not only the second member of the first. last week the same Cisco board of supervisors passed a resolution calling the NRA a domestic terrorist organization so you think we got a band in Nashville with the lives good grief so now a civil rights over the can you imagine. if we if if it's if a town passed an ordinance they call the N. double ACP a to a domestic terrorist organization all people would come on global warming the coming unglued about this this is an organization to protect your second amendment rights. yeah the big being called a domestic terrorist organization. they contend that the NRA spreads propaganda that seeks to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence. what would being the altar months goal of the NRA to do that well there wouldn't be they have no vested interest in lying to you about gun violence all they're doing is protecting the second amendment and so all they had to say the truth about. the resolution follows from recent high profile shootings. including one in Gilroy California this corn the B. C. news. which is about eighty miles southeast of San Francisco and by the way why they gonna put in parentheses a hundred twenty nine kilometers. we don't use climbers in this country okay so just put eighty miles having will know where that is. where gunmen in a festival in a case style longer it wasn't an AKC weapon it was in a cage it looks like an HK weapon you say so make a style weapon. killing three people injuring seventeen before killing himself since I'm shooting on July twenty eighth there have been at least three mass shootings in el Paso Dayton and in the works West Texas towns of Odessa and Midland. going to William brewer the third the NRA's lawyers of this action is an assault on all and because see organizations across the country there can be no place in our society for this matter of behavior by government officials fortunately says the NRA like all U. S. citizens is protected by the first amendment. so the NRA has been battling a number of challenges to its operations in recent months including an investigation by the Attorney General in New York where its charter was formed and the Attorney General in Washington DC where thirties are questioning whether its operations are in violation of its non profit status they're also been an internal battle over in our a leadership with groups then president Oliver north and its top lobbyist Chris **** stepping down giving gun rights activist holes about the NRA's ability to hold sway in the upcoming twenty twenty president selection blah blah blah blah basically what this boils down to is we've got a government entity that is trying to destroy a civil rights organization and it should not be allowed to happen so we'll see what the courts do and this and whether they strike down this resolution or whatever the heck the other resolution calling the NRA domestic terrorist organization. you notice they they call the NRA domestic territory but they will call and tea for a domestic terrorist organization and they actually are and they're not finding for anybody's civil rights. there"
