Austin Police Chief: We need to vet gun enthusiasts

Leave it to Austin to be the one place in Texas where the second amendment isn’t welcome

Last week,49-year-old Larry McQuilliam went on a ten minute shooting spree in Austin, Texas.

The only fatality was the shooter himself, when a mounted Austin police officer dropped McQuilliam from 312 feet with a single, strong handed, shot.

Following the shooting, Austin Police Chief, Art Acevedo held a press conference and encouraged Austonians to rat out gun enthusiasts for vetting (emphasis added).

“Folks, let me tell you what keeps me up at night, it’s these guys. It’s these homegrown extremists that are lone wolves, that are mad at the world, that are angry. And that’s why it’s important for us as Americans to know our neighbors, know our families. Tell somebody. If you know somebody that’s acting with a lot of hatred towards a particular group especially if you know somebody who’s a gun enthusiast or they’re armed with this type of fire arms and they’re showing any type of propensity for hatred, doesn’t mean that we’re going to go and take them to jail, but we might want to vet these people. He may well be alive today had we had the opportunity to do that.”
