    Biden pushes gun control less than 24 hours after attempted assassination on deputies

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were critically wounded in Compton after a gunman opened fire on their squad car in an apparent ambush.

    “Weapons of war have no place in our communities,” the former Vice President tweeted. “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”

    Earlier Biden had called the shooting “unconscionable” and for the suspect to be brought to justice. He also said anyone who commits an act of violence “should be caught and punished.”

    Biden’s comments on the ambush and gun control stand in stark contrast to President Donald Trump who called for a “fast trial” with the possibility of the death penalty.



    “Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump tweeted, referring to criminals who target law enforcement.

    "If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!" Trump later wrote.

    The president continued to attack his Democratic rival on Sunday, calling for tougher criminal sentencing guidelines and faster courts.

    Speaking at a roundtable campaign event in Las Vegas, Trump used Saturday night’s ambush to highlight his campaign’s “law and order” while casting Biden as weak on crime.

    “He’s not strong for law and order and everybody knows that,” Trump said of Biden during at a “Latinos for Trump” event. “When you see a scene like happened just last night in California with the two police people – a woman, a man – shot at stone cold short range.”

    The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy underwent surgery Saturday evening and were listed as in “critical” condition. A manhunt for the suspect was still underway on Sunday.

    From Comments:

    The founding fathers would have sent Biden back to the king
    -------------------------------------------------
    Biden wants to take guns away from law-abiding citizens so we can’t defend ourselves against the animals his party have empowered through race card politics! No thanks! I stand with President Trump and law enforcement!
    -------------------------------------------------
    this loser ambushed innocent cops and Biden jumps at an opportunity to get votes. Classy
    -------------------------------------------------
    gun control lawless folks are going to turn in there weapons
    -------------------------------------------------
    When they catch this kid they will find out he is using a stolen gun and he will be a felon. He will be already ignoring every law on the books just having the gun. But the knee jerk reaction that doesn't do any good is to make another law that will be ignored by a criminal. Put up posters, wanted dead or alive $100k reward no questions asked.
    -------------------------------------------------
    This is a democrat city with some of the strictest gun control in the country...you liberals own it Chicago Year to Date Shot & Killed: 507 Shot & Wounded: 2476 Total Shot: 2983 Total Homicides: 555
    -------------------------------------------------
    Joe, there are already laws on the books that would stop this creep from getting a gun but he got one anyway. You will not stop gun violence until come down hard on those who have guns illegally.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Sure looked like a pistol to me, not a so called "weapon of war" so Biden (or his puppetmaster) considers even pistols to be part of his proposed ban. No thanks Joe... Go back to bed now.
    -------------------------------------------------
    First of all Joe that wasn't an assault weapon. it was probably a cheap throw away pistol, a gun used in over 80 % of firearms crimes. AR-15's are use in less than 3% of all gun crimes. Secondly, Taking law abiding citizens firearms only punishes the good guys. BECAUSE Joe...Criminals don't care about gun laws or gun safe zones. What you ought to do is instill open carry laws and thugs would see how many people have the right to defend themselves and then they wouldn't appear as helpless targets.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Biden, gun control? Hey Joe, how about "redirecting" more funds from the police? The man is an imbecile.
    -------------------------------------------------
    I am sure bidens gun control (gun confiscation) stance will please his dem socialist base. However, real Americans are shaking their heads wondering how this guy is running for POTUS. It does not matter that 6 in 10 gun deaths are by suicide. It doesn't matter that in 2017 ( you know, during the obama /biden years) saw the highest total number of gun deaths in the U.S. He claims " respect fort he Second Amendment, which is limited.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Biden wants to ban "assault rifles"? Really?! He needs to put on his glasses because the slim-ball in the video had a handgun not a long gun. Another attack on the 2nd amendment. The anti-gun crowd needs to learn what's the difference between a handgun and a long gun. How can you ban something if you don't even know what it is?
    -------------------------------------------------
    Dem Platform: When a criminal uses a gun, it's the gun's fault. When a cop uses a gun, it's the cop's fault.

    Wow. They vilify the police, someone shoots the police, it is the guns fault. Typical leftist logic. BTW weapons of war absolutely belong in our society. Of course politicians will try to tell you otherwise as the weapons of war are to be uses against them if they become tyrannical. So you can understand why it is their interest to disarm the population. Could you imagine what BLM would be doing if their wasn't private gun ownership. They would have no fear of going into neighborhoods and helping themselves whatever they feel entitled to. You saw how incapable of protecting people and businesses law enforcement is during mass civil unrest.

    Does anyone believe that the weapon the Perpetrator used was a legally obtained weapon ? Enforce the gun laws that exist ! Or maybe better yet, outlaw murder and assault with a deadly weapon DUH ! WR

    And execute convicted murderers... NOW, not in 20 years!

    Ecclesiastes 8:11- Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

    Like ALL other politicians, Biden forgets that it takes a human being to discharge a weapon. Dems seem to believe that weapons have a mind of their own, and that weapons are the true bad guy. Flipping idiots - but we've come to expect that so its not really a surprise anymore.. just another roll of the eyes. Silly Democrats.
