Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called for two Los Angeles County Sheriff personnel for gun control on Sunday less than 24 hours after he was seriously injured in Compton when a gunman fired an ambush. The ambush set fire to his squad car.
The former Vice President tweeted, “Weapons of war have no place in our communities.” “We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”

The president continued to attack his Democratic opponent on Sunday, calling for tougher criminal sentencing guidelines and faster courts.
