    This is the same mayor that told criminals to "stop committing crimes" because of covid.

  2. Randal S on September 22, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    How true. These elected officials are following the money and spruiking for votes.

  3. Rene Rodriguez on September 22, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Government officials have always spoken at the NRA conventions

  4. Iambic Pentameter on September 22, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    They’re going to collect their money 💰

  5. landofthelivingskies on September 22, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    It’s because now the republicans and the NRA are trying to arm every teacher and in every school in America, instead of common sense gun laws. Imagine trying to make more money on such tragedies. These elected officials are just the lowest form of human.

  6. Sheila Rider on September 22, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    That they value & support the Constitution.

  7. Cripster G. on September 22, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    They are sending the message that some politicians still believe in our constitutional rights.

  8. Larry Thompson on September 22, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    good lap dog

  9. American on September 22, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Outside of Houston Turner…, those of the radical left only want to eliminate the second amendment to be able to control us as happened in Cuba and Venezuela…, tyrannical governments like Biden’s…!!!

  10. Cindy Boo on September 22, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    "Why are they coming?" It’s easy…..because they value the NRA donations more than the actual BORN lives of children. They lack any form of self awareness and compassion by going…and to make matters worse, it’s probably an expense paid for with taxpayers dollars. Truly disgusting.

  11. Karron Pitman on September 22, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Because elected officials like Cruz and Abbott have freedom to speak anywhere they want.
    Does this man feel the same about elected officials who openly speak out for BLM and ANTIFA. What message does that send???
    It sends the message that we need the 2nd Amendment now more than ever.

  12. Monty Jackson on September 22, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    quack quack quack quack 🤪

  13. Floyd Rhodes IV on September 22, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    It sends the message of Constitutional Rights ,2nd amendment! Without it ,RMY TANKS WILL BE DRIVING OVER SCHOOL STUDENTS ! DO YOU GET IT MTHRFCKR

  14. Cathy Alford on September 22, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Houston is a KILLING FIELD Lately, WHY? How come Democrat run cities the most run down and violent?

  15. Immigrant Veteran on September 22, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Why are politicians publicly supporting socialist organizations that outright hate America? What message does that send? 2A!!!

  16. pickles on September 22, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Democrats encouraging more violent riots in the name of "social justice…."
    What msg did that send…
    You political hipocrites need to sit down and be quiet….

  17. Melanated One on September 22, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I’m glad he has the Balls to say this out loud 🙏🏾

  18. ⚒Bulletman⚡ on September 22, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Hypocrisy the dems. The gun doesn’t pull the trigger.

  19. Dennis Mitchell on September 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Note to those wanting to end gun ownership !
    Good guys with guns are needed in much higher quantities to STOP BAD GUYS WITH GUNS ! When all guns belong to just the good guys using guns for good reasons then there will no longer be unacceptable gun violence !
    P. S. There aren’t any good guys in politics. That’s why they have TRAINED GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS for SECURITY !

  20. SatorOperaTenet on September 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    charlatans and criminals

  21. Zelda Z on September 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Love him!!! The Major of Texas!!!

  22. American on September 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    You were in favor of sending 40 billion dollars to Ukraine, but last year Biden and the Demoncrats took the money to protect the schools out of the budget.. then hypocritical Turner

  23. Cathy Alford on September 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Who killed those children, A Monster DID. Why blame the LAW ABIDING NRA members?? NO NRA Member has killed Children.

  24. C Snide on September 22, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    The message is WE SUPPORT KILLING CHILDREN IF IT GETS US A FAT CHECK.
    GOP = Guns Over People.

  25. Red or Dead on September 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    They work for the NRA not YOU!!

  26. Will Todd on September 22, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    But you support democrats killing babies….smh

  27. Rich O on September 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    The NRA is a domestic terrorist organisation that bribes politicians to do nothing about gun laws.
    They spend millions bribing them and millions on pro gun propaganda.

  28. Neon Monkey on September 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    The 2nd amendment is part of the Constitution. Why aren’t all politicians standing up to protect it?

  29. calvingreene90 on September 22, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Going to speak at the NRA doesn’t send the leftist message it does send the right message that shaped pieces of alloy and plastic are not responsible for the evil snot using it

  30. B.Sills on September 22, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Elected officials have no right sitting in private meetings discussing how theyre going to remove our god given rights.

  31. Cheryl Leclerc on September 22, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Agree 100% it’s inappropriate

  32. J A on September 22, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Why does anyone think these elected officials have any humanity left? NRA is a Terrorist Organization!

  33. andrew miller on September 22, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    The politicians are getting paid…and we gun owners are the pawns….

  34. John Bell on September 22, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Of course Americans should give up their rights, let the Democrats tell us what we can and can’t do. After all they do such a wonderful job just look at cities like New York Chicago, Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles all long-term democrat controlled cities. The worst places to live in America

  35. Brent Steiner on September 22, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    Paid public speaking.

  36. A E on September 22, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    It means blackmail!

  37. BS1 on September 22, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    They going to get that, sweet NRA Money Honey.💰💵💰💶💰💵💰💷💰💸 Can you imagine the tote goodie bags of free guns and bullets they get, for doing the bidding of the NRA? I bet Ted Cruz’s AR15 has a Cancún Theme. 😖🤧🤢🤮

  38. 𝙈𝙞𝙨𝙨 𝘼𝙢𝙖𝙯𝙤𝙣 on September 22, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Those kids were sent to soon to meet their maker & then the Republicans decided to go & meet the maker of the guns that took those little kids!

  39. ankush ds on September 22, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Not American, so can I ask what the NRA is?

  40. Very Handy Mann on September 22, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    He does know it was free men with guns that ended slavery, Right ?

  41. Cirex2118 on September 22, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Let’s not forget cuellar is also someone who has an A rating with the NRA and pro life and has had an fbi raid…Backed by pelosi, when Jessica Cisneros is not. 👏 We better do better in future elections to vote the BEST PRINCIPLED CANDIDATES IN FUTURE RACES OR WE LOSE TO THE RIGHT!
    Both parties have corruption that holds up legislation, look at sinema and manchin as PRIME examples, and they identify as center left, but I see center right with their policy making, and actions, or in our current state of being, a lack of action..

  42. The Kross on September 22, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Man, supporting constitutional and Permanent rights. I’ll be. Well, at least Democrats all disavowed any of the rioting groups during the Summer of Love. So, there’s no hypocrisy in calling out folks for attending a convention.

  43. Chris Hill on September 22, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    I disagree. They should be going. Guns aren’t the problem. How bout you spend all that money on mental health. Instead of wasting it on ban gun campaigns.

  44. Edwin Kgomphi on September 22, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    I know this is going to be beside the point but hear me out…doesn’t this guy sound a little like MORGAN FREEMAN? I mean just listen in.. 🤔

  45. Byecats Stacey on September 22, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    Thank you Mr. Mayor for making that point so politely and eloquently. Their attendance and speeches sends exactly the message the GOP wants to send. It isn’t right – it is extremist, though.

  46. Kemp Arrendale on September 22, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    After much thought and consideration I have changed my stance on gun control. Democrats and liberals should not be allowed to have firearms. They are clearly not mature enough and in many cases not intelligent enough to handle them responsibly

  47. Door Man on September 22, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Sends the right message to responsible gun owners and people without mental illness

  48. DJ Holliday on September 22, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Why TF does Mayor Sylvester Turner feel he has the right to tell ANY AMERICAN what to do?? He stands behind CRIMINALS w/ DA Kim Ogg. Crime in Houston has EXPLODED under these Dems. 👎

  49. Betty Veronica on September 22, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    That the NRAcists (aka GOP), are running a racket with the NRA. They keep each other in business.

  50. Kirk Sullivan on September 22, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    What about Democrat elected officials that go and speak at Planned Parenthood events?
