Austin Mayor Cries About There Being “Too Many Guns” After Protest Shooting

Last weekend was rather explosive for Austin, Texas after an armed protester was killed during a protest.

A man was driving near a protest in Austin when he saw Garrett Foster accompanied by his wife, who was in a wheelchair, approach his car.

Foster allegedly aimed an AK-47 at the car, which prompted the man to shoot and kill him.

The suspect left jail less than 24 hours following his arrest without receiving charges after he said that he used his gun in self-defense, according to a police report.

“In a split moment, three guns were drawn, eight shots were fired, and a protester was tragically killed. This is horrible as is all gun violence. There are too many guns. Our City is shaken and, like so many in our community, I’m heartbroken and stunned”, Austin Mayor Steve Adler tweeted.
