Phillip Art Acevedo, the chief of police at the Houston Police Department, sounded off on gun rights and mass shootings on Friday night, after a deadly school shooting tore apart another community in Santa Fe, Texas. "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," Acevedo said in his post. The police chief criticized the typical gun-rights drumbeat he hears in the wake of mass shootings like the one in Santa Fe, and the many others before it. "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," Acevedo said. Houston Police chief Art Acevedo says it’s time to do something different to address gun violence in America.

"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," Acevedo wrote in his Facebook post on Friday.
