SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A group of police chiefs from across the United States, including Salt Lake City's top cop, issued a statement Tuesday condemning the U.S. Senate's vote last week rejecting a series of gun control amendments, including one requiring background checks for all gun show and online gun sales.
Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank, who is on the board of directors of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, joined in the group's characterization of last week's Senate vote as "a disgrace."
