Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston sits down with Cheddar Politics to discuss the need for gun safety legislation and efforts to reduce violent crime. Turner talks about balancing different constituencies within the Democratic party on policing. He rejected calls to defund the police, but does believe other public safety measures proposed by that group need to be funded, as well. The Mayor emphasizes how important gun policy is in crime reduction, saying that as long as Texas has some of the most lax gun laws in the nation, Houston will be 'up against it'.
