Dallas Chief to Lawmakers: Do Your Job on Gun Control

During a Monday morning press conference, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said he believes legislators aren’t doing enough about guns in the United States. “There is a greater role in policy-making, and folks just need to do their job,” Brown said. “There are too many things we all agree on on both sides of the aisle that we haven’t gotten done. We just need to get it done. Quit asking cops to chime in and do it for you.” He added, “We’ve got a full plate. The policy-making, the laws being passed, that’s their job. We need to do it to be safer in this country. The issues have been long discussed. We are not getting to a place where we do anything. That’s the frustration for police officers. We all know what needs to be done that we agree on, just to say we did something.”
