WASHINGTON -- Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo joined other law enforcement officers from across the country in Washington Tuesday to push for change in gun control.
Vice President Joe Biden addressed the group of law enforcement officers on the federal, state and local levels after meeting with family members of victims of the Sand Hook massacre. The idea was to come together to enact new gun restrictions.
"The law enforcement executives that were there stand firmly with the administration and 90 percent of Americans, that favor universal background checks and some of the other common sense approaches," Acevedo said.
The chief also says Senate Bill 649 also creates a means by which people can't profit by going out and buying firearms at gun shows simply to turn around and sell them to criminals at a great cost to human life.
