This weekend, a very troubling situation broke out in LA.
Reminiscent of the Boston Marathon bombers, an individual walked up to a police vehicle and shot two officers sitting inside it.
After they were rushed to the hospital, protesters actually blocked the entrance of the emergency room, putting other people at risk. They chanted, “We hope they die!”
How did the Democratic candidate for president respond?
Not in the way you probably hoped:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were critically wounded in Compton when a gunman opened fire on their vehicle 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.”
It appears Joe Biden is calling for a ban on “weapons of war” and “assault weapons” in response to the shooting of two LAPD officers.
Joe Biden, it seems, is trying to use this terrible episode to push some of the left’s most extreme gun control measures.
What’s worth noting is that nothing Joe Biden is calling for a ban on was used in this shooting. From footage of the attack, it’s clear the gunman used a handgun.
“Assault weapons” (a term often used by gun control advocates, but is not a technical term) were not used, nor is it clear that a “high-capacity” magazine.
Biden claims “weapons of war” don’t believe in “our communities.” Yet such a vague term can be used to describe any type of firearm.
(After all, even revolvers and 9mm handguns have been used on the battlefield.)
At a time when police departments are being defunded—and a record number of new gun owners made their first purchases—Joe Biden appears to be advocate extreme gun control.
Does he want all firearms banned from “our communities”? He says he doesn’t, but he does want to take the first step.
Remember, Democrats have appeared to side with radical anarchists that want police departments defunded or abolished.
At the same time, many blue cities have turned a blind eye to riots and looting.
On top of that, Joe Biden and other leftists want strict gun control—so that law-abiding citizens have no means to protect themselves.
No police and no guns.
What do the Democrats really want?
- A gunman fired on two police officers this weekend, severely wounding them.
- Joe Biden responded by calling for strict gun control measures.
- He called out “weapons of war” as well as “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines.”
