Miami Police Chief Slams Texas Bill That Would Allow Unlicensed Carrying Of Handguns
It’s the next part that got me.
“Common sense tells us” that the new gun measure is “ridiculous,” said Art Acevedo, the former Houston police chief.
I missed when Art Acevedo got hired to be the Miami Chief of Police.
Acevedo is the embodiment of Leftists failing upward. The guy is a partisan hack behind a badge.
Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo on Sunday bashed a new Texas measure that would end most handgun licensing requirements in the state, calling the proposal “ridiculous” and in opposition to law enforcement agencies’ wishes.
“Look, there’s something that God gave us and that’s common sense,” Acevedo told host John Dickerson. “And common sense tells us that that is ridiculous. Law enforcement, police chiefs, sheriffs, police labor stood up together and made it real clear we do not support constitutional carry here in Texas or anywhere in this country.”
There has not been in problem in any state that has gone Constitutional carry. The same lie told about adopting concealed carry and Stand Your Ground – i.e., “every fender bender will turn into a gun battle and people will be shooting each other over nothing” – never materialized. Now they are trying it with Constitutional carry and their hysteria is proving to be the same mendacity.
“They only support the Blue in word,” he continued. “It’s now time to support the Blue in deed by vetoing that bill. You’re either with law enforcement or you stand with the fringe that believe that everybody should have a firearm regardless of their character, their capabilities or their mental capacity.”
This is how you become a cop loved by the Left, by making it crystal clear you want to use your authority to restrict the civil rights of law abiding citizen.
That’s the Left in a nutshell:
Cop who tackles crime and punishes criminals = bad.
Cop who goes after law abiding gun owners and tax paying business owners = good.
The Left never chanted “defund the police” when a guy trying to keep his gym or restaurant afloat during the pandemic was dragged out in handcuffs for not enforcing mask wearing. Only when some convicted felon lost a quick draw contest with the police.
“They need to come out of their own corners ― the left and the right ― and come to the middle, which is where most Americans are,” Acevedo said Sunday. “We need to have universal background checks. We need to make burglarizing these licensed gun stores a federal crime with mandatory sentencing.”
It is a federal crime, dickbag, it gets you 10 years.
You’d think a police chief would know that but he comes from California where not working with the federal government is the paragon of justice.
This guy is terrible. I wonder where he will fail up to next? Probably the Biden DOJ.
I hope DeSantis signs Constitutional carry in Florida just to spite his stupid ass.
