Joe Biden Crassly Capitalizes On Cop-Killing Attempt For Gun Control

If Joe Biden has his way, we'll be left with a disarmed America, rendered helpless against the criminals he refuses to confront.
Joe Biden has a way of twisting and co-opting events to usher in his radical anti-gun agenda. This is evident most recently in his thoughtless tweet demanding his vision of far-left gun control in the wake of an assassination attempt on two Los Angeles County Sheriff deputies.
The former vice president, who is trotted out by his wife as the presidential candidate who “feels” America’s angst, was blithely callous when he tweeted for gun and magazine bans less than 24 hours after a criminal brazenly walked up to a sheriff’s vehicle and fired several times with a handgun, critically wounding two deputies.
Biden’s first instinct was to call for a ban on “weapons of war,” facts be damned. What’s more important to Biden is to establish the “it’s the gun’s fault” narrative. Biden also demonstrated willful ignorance concerning how he and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., are complicit in stoking anti-police animus.
Ignorance or Exposure
Biden either exposes his ignorance of firearms and existing laws or opens up his true intentions on gun control. “Weapons of war have no place in our communities,” his tweet said. “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”
Surveillance video clearly shows the assailant walk up to the deputies’ vehicle and fire a handgun several times, striking both deputies in the face and head. The criminal wasn’t holding Biden’s vaunted “assault weapon,” a term invented by gun control advocates to scare Americans into adopting the gun control narrative.
The Violence Policy Center’s Josh Sugarmann created the term in 1988 to confuse and mislead the public into believing that commonly owned semiautomatic rifles are the same as machine guns. Sugarmann wrote, “[A]nything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun [and] — can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions of these weapons.” In reality, the modern sporting rifle operates in the same manner as other semiautomatic firearms, firing one round with each pull and release of the trigger.
Biden knows this yet perpetuates this myth. He cherry-picks data to support his political agenda but ignores the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s findings that the ban on AR-15 rifles and magazines had no effect on crime reduction. He would reinstate an even more draconian version of the 1994 assault weapons ban. Instead of just banning the sale of modern sporting rifles with certain cosmetic features that have no bearing on the firearm’s function, he’d go further.
