Watts tweeted this out to oppose Texas constitutional carry and to attack Texas state rep Patterson:
“Texas law enforcement officials” should be used lightly here, and this is why. The article she linked:
Chief Eddie Garcia of Dallas. Let’s look more into that, shall we?
He came from San Jose, CA and has been a Texas law enforcement official for a little over two months, Shannon. Further, he’s one of your allies. From 2019 when he was in San Jose:
At a news conference at San Jose Police Department headquarters Tuesday, Liccardo was accompanied by Police Chief Eddie Garcia, the local chapters of the advocacy groups Moms Demand Action and March for Our Lives, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office, and Pastor Danny Sanchez, chaplain for the crisis-response team of the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force. Nationally, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Giffords Law Center also endorsed the city’s efforts.
“The existence of so many illegal guns on the street is a constant threat to our communities and the officers protecting those communities,” Garcia said. The proposed regulation, he said, “will give us another tool to ensure that legally sold firearms are not falling into the hands of those who are prohibited from possessing them.”
Jessica Blitchok, a co-leader of the San Jose chapter of Moms Demand Action, said the practices the city hopes to codify are already in place at large retailers like Walmart.
Nice try, Shan Shan. He’s a very recent California transplant, not a true “Texas law enforcement official.” We’re on to you and using “top cops” (political hacks) to push your agenda.
Moms Demand Action allied police chiefs should just stick to what they do best: using excessive force to shoot and kill people like Breonna Taylor:
or maybe they should keep harassing local Black Lives Matter groups that defy Moms Demand Action’s “feel good” laws (we could all learn a thing our two here):
