"Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo, who used to lead the Houston Police Department, called a new measure approved by the Texas state Legislature that would allow people to carry handguns without a license "ridiculous" and urged Governor Greg Abbott to veto the bill.

"There's something that God gave us and that is common sense, and common sense tells us that that is ridiculous," Acevedo said in an interview with "Face the Nation" when asked about the legislation."

Common sense tells me that if you take the guns out of law abiding citizens hands, then the only people who have guns are the government entities and criminals. Look at Chicago, LA, NY and Baltimore gun crime rates. These are the top four cities for gun crime and the top four cities for gun control laws...doc

Evidently he wasn't in line the day God was giving out common sense. Throughout the Bible God declares and decrees that people have his right to defend themselves against those who would do them harm. The founders recognized this and that is why they included the 2nd. This Acevedo character is simply another useful idiot for those who would disarm us.

Police chiefs in big cities are primarily chosen based on politics so best ignore their opinions. But indeed many police would love to be the only armed ones in society, and that is what they are in totalitarian states.
