The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Monday against San Francisco after the city passed a resolution declaring the gun rights group a "domestic terrorist organization."

Details: The NRA alleges the move violates its freedom of speech for political reasons and attempts to "blacklist anyone linked to the NRA." NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said in a statement that "we will never stop fighting for our law-abiding members and their constitutional freedoms."

The big picture: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the resolution last week. City supervisor Catherine Stefani told AP she drafted the resolution in response to the July 28 shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, which killed 3 people and wounded 15 others.

  • Since the California mass shooting, there have been at least 3 others in the U.S. — in El Paso, Dayton and the West Texas sister cities of Odessa and Midland.

What they're saying: Stefani told AP the lawsuit was a "desperate move" by the NRA as it's embroiled in infighting and LaPierre has had his handling of NRA finances brought into question.

"They continue to stand in the way of gun violence reform and people are dying because of it. ... I truly believe their time is up."

Louisville officer: "Breonna Taylor would be alive" if we had served no-knock warrant

Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the Louisville officer who led the botched police raid that caused the death of Breonna Taylor, said the No. 1 thing he wishes he had done differently is either served a "no-knock" warrant or given five to 10 seconds before entering the apartment: "Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent."

Driving the news: Mattingly, who spoke to ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal for his public interview, was shot in the leg in the initial moments of the March 13 raid. Mattingly did not face any charges after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he and another officer were "justified" in returning fire to protect themselves against Taylor's boyfriend.

U.S. vs. Google — the siege begins

The Justice Department fired the starter pistol on what's likely to be a years-long legal siege of Big Tech by the U.S. government when it filed a major antitrust suit Tuesday against Google.

The big picture: Once a generation, it seems, federal regulators decide to take on a dominant tech company. Two decades ago, Microsoft was the target; two decades before that, IBM.

Why the stimulus delay isn't a crisis (yet)

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

  • That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.
