From the CCRKBA:
Democrat Joe Biden’s disgusting attempt to take advantage of the ambush of two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies to push his anti-gun agenda illustrates the mental dishonesty of the gun prohibition mindset, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms mentioned at this time.
The two deputies had been shot at shut vary by an unidentified gunman who may be seen on video elevating a handgun to open fireplace. Yet, the previous vice chairman wasted no time tweeting about “weapons of war” whereas declaring, “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.” Neither an “assault rifle” or excessive capability magazine visibly had been used within the crime.

“Just when you thought Joe Biden’s lifelong crusade against firearms couldn’t go any lower, he grabs a shovel and starts digging,” mentioned CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This illustrates the chapter of the gun prohibition motion. They’ll use a horrific tragedy as a place to begin to push their very own agenda, which usually has no factual relation to the incident they’re exploiting.
“There is a heavy disconnect between reality and what the gun control lobby would have people think,” he continued, “and Biden’s attempt to capitalize on this cowardly act by calling for a ban on a type of firearm that wasn’t even used is intentionally misleading.”
Law enforcement businesses are trying to find a suspect, and there’s a $100,000 reward for info resulting in the arrest and conviction of the individual accountable. The wounded deputies, described as a 24-year-old male and 31-year-old feminine, had been reportedly in steady situation Monday following surgical procedure.
“We have watched the video of this craven act several times, which is apparently something Biden didn’t do even once before he sent out that self-serving tweet,” Gottlieb acknowledged. “Instead of calling for a ban on a gun that wasn’t concerned, maybe Joe Biden ought to as an alternative give attention to the individuals who gathered exterior of the hospital yelling they hope the deputies would die, and easily inform them to close up and go dwelling.
“Biden’s remarks illustrate an almost amoral attitude about a terrible crime,” he mentioned. “He seems more interested in how he might use this tragedy to advance his anti-gun-rights agenda than he is about the lives of the two wounded deputies. We’re not sure what to call that, but it’s not moral leadership.”
