Austin Police Chief Trash Talks 2nd Amendment Supporter on Twitter

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- The lack of civility coming from gun control advocates was made apparent again over the weekend when Austin, Texas Police Chief Art Acevedo described a pro-gun twitter user as having a “lying extremist undeveloped brain.”

It seems the pro-gun tweet that drew Acevedo’s ire was one that suggested the police chief supported universal background checks. Acevedo tried to undercut this claim by labeling it “lying” and “extremist.”

However,  as Twitchy points out, Acevedo has been clear about his support for universal background checks in the past.

In fact, during the May 19 exchange with the “lying extremist” pro-gun twitter user, Acevedo tweeted: “police chiefs have supported UBC long before this POTUS & will continue doing so long after he leaves office.”

In another tweet, Acevedo mocked concerns that universal background checks will curtail personal liberty and infringe on the the 2nd Amendment itself: “Oh, no the horror, gun profiteers can’t sell guns to criminals and nuts.”

These texts have since been deleted from Acevedo’s twitter account in what appears to be an effort to cover his tracks.

      As a commenter said in another post, the Chief of police is an appointed position and his boss is the Mayor or Governor, whereas the Sheriff is an elected position and his “boss” are the people that elected him. He doesn’t answer to the Governor or Mayor and that’s why Sheriffs around the country are standing up for the 2nd amendment…local cops will lose their jobs if they do.

    3. Only to be expected from the AG21 capitol of TX.

      Hey Acevedo read this! Support honest law abiding citizens, get off your high horse. Authority does not replace morality and “YOU DON’T KNOW ALL THE LAWS.”
      Remember who you work for. You are a PUBLIC SERVANT. Shut up and serve or quit.

      Well, go figure. The Police Chief in liberal Longhorn land supports further infringement of our rights. I bet the College Station Chief has a different opinion. That’s why I support the Aggies.

      Austin, Texas Police Chief Art Acevedo is the liar. Any person who supports unconstitutional gun control laws should NOT be a public servant. He swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. He has reneged on that oath, he should be fired. I am sick to death of these traitors who masquerade as law enforcement authorities. They make me sick to my stomach.
