CA – GUN CRIME – Biden Pitches Tougher Gun Control After Deputy Ambush Attack

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called for tighter gun restrictions in the wake of what authorities described as an ambush, in which two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were critically wounded. “Weapons of war have no place in our communities,” Biden wrote in a tweet. “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.” His statement followed an earlier tweet, in which he referred to a 10-year Senate ban on “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines, saying Congress should never have let it expire, adding, “[a]s president, I’ll take on the @NRA and we’ll ban them once again.” Biden’s comments follow an earlier statement he made when he called the incident, in which a 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy were shot in Compton, “unconscionable.” “This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice. Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished,” Biden wrote. Video footage of the shooting showed a suspect approaching the vehicle in which the deputies were sitting before opening fire. The two officers are expected to recover, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villaneuva said Sunday. After being shot at point blank range, the officers were still able to call for help. “They performed in an admirable fashion in spite of grave adversity,” Villanueva said in a conversation with local religious leaders. “God bless them.”  [full article]
