Some conservatives attempted to warn leftists that they weren’t going to like the new rules and standards they were creating once they started getting applied to them. They didn’t listen. And as I’ve been chronicling recently, the right has started using the left’s weapons, such as the court system, to fight back pretty effectively.
Latest example: the NRA has slapped San Francisco with a lawsuit for voting to label the NRA as a “domestic terrorist group.” The lawsuit alleges that city officials also smeared the NRA as “inciting gun owners to acts of violence,” which is flatly false, and that the designation of them as a propaganda-generating terrorist group is a violation of their First Amendment right to free speech and an attempt to blacklist members, as well as “an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country.”
Considering that the resolution’s author, San Francisco Supervisor Catherine Stefani, as much as admitted it was born out of pure emotion and wanting to “just do something” about mass shootings rather than actual facts about the NRA, it will be interesting to hear how the city defends itself in court. Although if I had to make a prediction, it would be that this resolution gets rescinded and the case settled before that happens. I suspect that even the people who run San Francisco aren’t crazy enough to try to convince a jury to certify their fact-free hissy fit.
