Is the ACLU Next?

9/4/19 KTVU:
 - The city of San Francisco has formally adopted a resolution calling the National Rifle Association a domestic terrorist organization.
San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on Tuesday took the step of officially declaring the nation's premier gun-ownership advocates a terrorist organization.
District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani wrote the scathing declaration reading in part, "the National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence.
Hmm.  An organization that promotes a particular view of the Constitution, files suits in defense of that view, and lobbies government.  How does not describe the ACLU?

  1. Hmm-could declaring an organization "terrorist" solely on the basis of advocating a particular position be a 1st Amendment violation?
