Biden Calls for a New ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban After LA Deputies are Shot With a Handgun

LASD Deputies Shot California

A screen grab from a security camera video released the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department shows a gunman walking up to sheriff’s deputies and opening fire without warning or provocation in Compton, Calif., on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. (Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department via AP)

The fact that the shooter who ambushed two Los Angles County deputies in their car Saturday used a handgun rather than an AR-15 seems to have escaped Slow Joe…or the people who manage his social media accounts.

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.

        Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn what color the perp is. This is an attempt by the democRat Party to concoct headlines that imply a so called “Assault Weapon” was used because the democRat Party knows useful idiots only read headlines and will run with it and use it to fill the heads of more useful idiots with propaganda.
        Whoever shot the officers is on the run, hiding, peeing on himself, not sleeping, not eating and peeping through a window because he knows the train is coming for him. Sucks to be him and hopefully his despicable cheerleaders will soon see him full of holes.

    What a moronic statement! It was a handgun, just like 98% of murders or attempted murder.

    And y’all saw that gun sneak up on the police car, all on its own, and shoot multiple times, all on its own, right?

      Yup. No doubt. It “went off”.

    2. avatar Southern Cross says:

      To Creepy Joe, the police officers were assaulted with a weapon, therefore it’s an “assault weapon”.

    Sleepy/creepy Joe should push for a ban of those Ford Explorer police vehicles. The police were sitting in an unsafe vehicle – no bullet proof glass, no early warning detection system, the fuel tank holds over 10 gallons (no one needs more than 10 gallons) – it must be an assault vehicle. Can we call for a ban of stupid demotators? That would take care of about 80 – 90% of the democrats.

      Not to mention the speed…I bet that cop car could hit 120 mph. Nobody needs to go faster than 75, there are signs everywhere that say so.

          Doesn’t matter what it is, some guy from Texas always has to one-up you. 🙂 It’s 80 and 85 on freeways in Utah, too (outside the cities). 75 was just the most common number that came to mind, as I’ve been driving between WA and OR recently.

          But that actually makes the point even better. 75 is bad enough, but 85? Horrors! Think of the children!

    Joe is calling out to his supporters in the only language they understand “BAN”. Private Insurance, guns, capitalism, police, whatever they decide to ban to enforce their socialist tropes. This election is the most important in my life. It might decide whether I live or die.

    1. avatar MarkPA says:

      “. . . Private Insurance, guns, . . . ” ? ? ? ?

      My first read of this sentence left me puzzled; what does “private insurance” have to do with “guns”?

      Then, it dawned on me. I am starting to do the intersectionality-think.

      The commenter was referring to private HEALTH insurance. You know, that thing that the Progressives want to nationalize into a single-payer system. You know the one, it guarantees coverage for pre-existing conditions. But, of course, that “guarantee” is at the discretion of the underwriters of the legislation and policies. Got it now?

      And, you will recall that Progressives want to require gun-owners to have gun liability insurance. Just common sense; right? One very important feature of this grand idea is that the underwriters will evaluate policy applicants for their suitability and probability-of-risk of claims. Only makes sense; right?

      If health insurance can be nationalized (single-payer) then gun-owner’s liability insurance can be nationalized. Then, the underwriters of this quazi-public insurance company will evaluate Bloomberg’s bodyguards for their underwriting suitability and issue a policy at an inexpensive premium. You and me? Well, maybe not. Maybe our premiums will rise year-after-year to the point where many of us turn-in our guns and cancel our gun-liability insurance policies.

      Grand plan. Government won’t “infringe” on the right to arms. It will be a quazi-private insurance company that does the dirty work. With Bloomberg sitting as the chairman of its board of directors.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        It’s more insidious than just pricing people out of the market. I urge you to consider what I say below in the context of “firearm insurance”.

        If you follow the “Medicare For All” rabbit hole you find the following:

        They want to base things on Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALYs). Now, they’ll tell you that this is totally legit because it’s what insurance companies do to calculate premiums based on age and condition. However, that’s a bait-and-switch. If you really read what people like Ezekiel Emmanuel have talked about they’re discussing a theoretical construct sometimes called a “Scottish QALY” (because it was proposed in Scotland).

        A Scottish QALY is entirely different than calculating a premium, it’s a calculation of what the program will and will not pay for based on the projected value of the person to “society” at the time of diagnosis juxtaposed against the cost of the treatment. If the value of the treatment exceeds the “value of the person to society” they don’t get the treatment. All of this is “normalized”, which is to say averaged.

        So, for example, the average person pays $5,000 per year in taxes (it’s actually $10,489, but I’m picking numbers that are easy to work with). That means that at 60 years old your “benefit to society” is 5,000 x 5 (five years remaining until average retirement), or $25,000. So that’s the max pool such a person can draw on. If they’re diagnosed with, say a treatable form of cancer which costs $50,000 they don’t get the treatment. But if the same person had been diagnosed at 55 or younger they would have gotten the treatment.

        And it works that way for young people too. The proposed system assumes an average retirement age of 65 and an average starting age of 16. So if we assume that $5000/year in taxes and a working life of 49 years we get $245,000 as their max “lifetime pool”.

        So, depending on how you work the numbers childhood diseases can “out pace the pool”, which is to say that the average life expectancy with care exceeds the average amount paid in. Such a person is denied care. So a kid with, say, Type 1 diabetes may have “care withheld” (they die) because they’re too young and so they won’t, on average, pay enough in to the system to cover their treatment.

        Now, consider that the “Medicare For All” proposal bans private money. That means the said child has a state-imposed death sentence for a treatable disorder because they’re not “valuable enough” to the system. Even if the kid’s a genius and the parents are rich they cannot use their own money to “bridge the gap” because that wouldn’t be “fair” to people who couldn’t do the same.

        They are literally proposing a system that kills children and retirees and does so on purpose. They admit this. It’s something E. Emmanuel has written papers about, how no one should live past 75 under any conditions.

        You wonder why they want your guns? This is a taste of why. You wonder what they’ll do to your guns if they get the kind of regulatory power being discussed in this sub-thread? Yeah, well they’re willing to kill kids and old people through denial of care, what do you think they’ll do to someone who they find has “unapproved of” guns?

    I’m honestly starting to feel bad for Poor Old Joe.

    We had a really bad professor at the large university I attended right after ‘Nam. He was drinking during class, grabbing the cute co-eds asses. He was tenured. The director of our school made him am offer he couldn’t refuse, ‘Leave, and go to [this other large university] and I will give you a good recommendation.’ He took the advice. Then that word seeped out into the student body and the kids began to trash him, piling on.

    It was bad. He was done, being dismissed and now being trashed by these punk kids. I began to preach forgiveness.

    And here we are again.

    Old Joe is going down. Everybody knows that, and soon the mob is going to gang up on him. Let’s relax.

    Let him go gently into the night.

    Save your fire and venom for antifa, Soros and Pelosi.
