Fort Worth mayor, Texas police chiefs join national call for tighter gun restrictions

WASHINGTON — Texans joined a push on Capitol Hill with mayors and police chiefs from around the country asking for national legislation to tighten restrictions on firearm purchases, saying such laws would prevent mass shootings.

“The 911 calls don’t come into the Senate, they don’t come into the Congress, they come into the police chiefs and mayors,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, speaking at a U.S. Conference of Mayors news conference on Monday. “It’s not the Congress that shows up. By the time they get there, the blood has been cleaned up and the bodies have been removed.”
