Houston Police Chief Sends Warning to Pro-Gun Advocates

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo isn’t interested in people’s pro-gun views.

Hours after the deadly school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas on Friday, Acevedo posted a Facebook message about his growing frustration with gun violence as well as policymakers’ lack of action on the issue. The chief also asked his Facebook friends to refrain from posting any pro-gun comments in wake of the recent school shooting; any individual who refused to honor his request would risk getting “unfriended.”

“Today I spent the day dealing with another mass shooting of children and a responding police officer who is clinging to life. I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve shed tears of sadness, pain and anger,” he wrote in part. “I know some have strong feelings about gun rights but I want you to know I’ve hit rock bottom and I am not interested in your views as it pertains to this issue. Please do not post anything about guns aren’t the problem and there’s little we can do. My feelings won’t be hurt if you de-friend me and I hope yours won’t be if you decide to post about your views and I de-friend you.”

  1. I see some open carry protests in my future. Why not take back the culture right? It is a gun, get over it. I got a nice one with a 60 round drum mag… AR but classified as pistol because of barrel length and no stock. I think I will educate the citizenry about the big bad bang bangs. Open carry protest year! Woohoo! Then I get to meet all the police, and find out which ones hate Christians and are actually Satanic murderers!

  2. I will never understand why these hillbillies need to carry a fucking automatic rifle to flex on people. Why cant we just ban all automatic guns and keep pistols legal with a strong background check? Honestly, I've grown to hate Red America more and more ever since Trump came into the picture.

  3. "Gun control won't work " well doing nothing wont help either lmao dumbass so we gon sit tell the next WHITE BOY with a small dick gets triggered enough to shoot up the school

  4. you take away legal guns they can get illegal guns…you just make them harder to get and this wouldn't happen id rather all guns to certian people then some guns to all people and this person didnt use an ar15 so you cant say the ar15 is the issue he used a shotgun and a revolver just make it harder to get but dont restrict the types of guns a person can buy

  5. Sensible laws, no guns for crazy people.. we don’t want your shotgun or your handguns… or your 30-06… but no .50 calibers, assault rifles.. or tech-9’s… your right to self defense in not in jeopardy… but whatever man, I’m really thinking about home schooling my kids.. and building a bunker🤦🏽‍♂️💀

  6. All these people who are defending the right to have a gun, I hope y’all don’t have kids because any day they could go to school & you’d never see them again….except for at the funeral.

  7. "Sends warning"… You mean threatens to Unfriend, I'm sure that title won't be twisted by people who didn't watch the video, good job of effectively spreading lies.
