Joe Biden has called for gun control less than 24 hours after two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were left critically wounded in Compton after a gunman opened fire on their squad car. Biden is just pushing for more gun control.
A 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy underwent surgery Saturday evening and were listed as being in “critical” condition.
A manhunt for the suspect is still underway.
Fox News reports: 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.
“Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump tweeted, referring to criminals who target law enforcement.
“If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!” Trump later wrote.
The president continued to attack his Democratic rival on Sunday, calling for tougher criminal sentencing guidelines and faster courts.
Speaking at a roundtable campaign event in Las Vegas, Trump used Saturday night’s ambush to highlight his campaign’s “law and order” while casting Biden as weak on crime.
“He’s not strong for law and order and everybody knows that,” Trump said of Biden during at a “Latinos for Trump” event. “When you see a scene like happened just last night in California with the two police people – a woman, a man – shot at stone cold short range.”
