While the details of a deadly shootout that left six dead in Sacramento continue to unfold, Joe Biden used the incident to push for more gun control. The Sacramento shooting prompted Biden to make the following statements.
“Today, America once again mourns for another community devastated by gun violence. In a single act in Sacramento, six individuals left dead and at least a dozen more injured. Families forever changed. Survivors left to heal wounds both visible and invisible.”
Biden continued, “But we must do more than mourn; we must act. That is why my Administration has taken historic executive action to implement my comprehensive gun crime reduction strategy — from standing up gun trafficking strike forces to helping cities across the country expand community violence interventions and hire more police officers for community policing.”
Biden failed to mention that California is ranked first by the Bloomberg funded Everytown for Gun Safety for its stringent gun control measures and called for more of the same saying, “We also continue to call on Congress to act. Ban ghost guns. Require background checks for all gun sales. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Repeal gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability. Pass my budget proposal, which would give cities more of the funding they need to fund the police and fund the crime prevention and intervention strategies that can make our cities safer. These are just a few of the steps Congress urgently needs to take to save lives.”
The Sacramento shooting is another example of democrat led cities which have rising gun violence. All of the shooters were breaking existing laws on the state and federal level.
