The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution Tuesday that declares the National Rifle Association a "domestic terrorist organization."

After connecting the NRA to an "epidemic of gun violence" in the U.S., the resolution urges San Francisco to distance itself from the organization by examining local vendors' and contractors' ties to the NRA. It also says the local government should avoid doing business with the NRA or organizations associated with it.

"The National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence," the resolution reads.

While supervisors will be examining San Francisco's connections to the NRA, the resolution is also meant to pave the way for similar legislation at the local, state or federal level, Supervisor Catherine Stefani, who sponsored the resolution, told USA TODAY on Wednesday.

The designation of domestic terrorist organization is justified because the NRA's opposition to gun control is "standing in the way of saving lives,” Stefani said.

If the NRA is a domestic terrorist organization, then why isn’t antifa?
