San Antonio City Council asks Gov. Greg Abbott to call a special session to address gun violence

The council joins more than 15 Democratic state representatives who have requested a special session after the shooting in an El Paso Walmart that left 22 shoppers dead earlier this month.

As newly sworn-in city council members look on, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg speaks to the crowd at his Wednesday swearing in at the Arneson River Theater on the San Antonio Riverwalk on June 21, 2017.
