This weekend, Americans were shocked to see two LA cops targeted for assassination by a rogue gunman. In the aftermath, radical activists tried to prevent them from entering the hospital to receive medical care. Americans across the country were outraged, calling for justice for these two men. The president demanded action. Joe Biden? He had another idea.
We shouldn’t be surprised that it has come to this. After months of rioting and media-fueled hate for our law enforcement, two Los Angeles cops were targeted for assassination. A gunman approached their car and opened fire. To the utter shock and disgust of many Americans, Black Lives Matter protesters even tried to block the entrance to the hospital, so the police officers would die due to the delay.
This is the direct result of Democrats and the media spending the Summer allowing anti-police sentiment to grow out of control. They’ve stoked the flames of irrational hate, leading to this unspeakable moment.
Americans of all backgrounds demanded the gunman be found and brought to justice. Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden, must have realized at some point he needed to mention something, if he wanted to keep his campaign alive. But his “solution” comes at just the worst time.
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.” [Source: Fox News]
At a time when Democrats are defunding police—and crime is at an all-time high—Biden is recommending policy that will leave Americans defenseless. Like every other uneducated gun control nut, Biden is calling for a ban of “weapons of war” and “assault weapons” two terms not used by anyone that’s ever held a gun.
We know that calling any firearm a “weapon of war” suggests that civilians should not own them. But can you point to any gun that isn’t used in warfare? Even simple 9mm handguns have been used by soldiers on the battlefield. It seems that if Joe had his way, you’d have access to zero weapons.
And, of course, we know that “assault weapon” is a buzzword used by liberals—but no such firearm exists.
Liberals continue to turn their cities into warzones, by defunding police departments and rewarding criminals. Americans in many places have no choice but to arm themselves, if they want to avoid being the victims of a crime. We know that 2 million new gun owners were made in this year alone. But right at the time when gun ownership is rising, Joe the idiot wants to make it harder for Americans to protect themselves.
In contrast, President Trump has called for swift justice for the man who ambushed these officers. He called the thug an “animal” for walking up to a police car and trying to assassinate two cops.
President Trump argued on Sunday for tougher criminal sentencing guidelines and faster courts as the manhunt continues for the suspect in the shooting of two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies over the weekend.
The president added: “We’re looking for him…and when we find that person, we’ve got to get much faster with our courts and we’ve got to get much tougher with our sentencing.” [Source: Fox News]
Crime is on the rise and dangerous anarchists burn cities and call for the overthrow of our country. Meanwhile, Democrats like Joe Biden are calling for more policy that will aid and empower those who seek to destroy us.
