Biden Defends 1994 Crime Bill, Says It Helped Him ‘Beat the NRA’
BIDEN: "I'm the only guy ever nationally to beat the NRA. Because when we did the crime bill, everybody talks about the bad things. Let me tell you about the good thing in the crime bill. It's the one that had the assault weapons ban, a limited number of bullets in the clip, it made sure that cop killer bullets, teflon bullets weren't available any longer. It opened up the whole effort to make sure there's background checks for the first time in American history. Look, the Second Amendment exists, but it doesn't say you can own any kind of weapon you want. It doesn't say everybody is entitled to one."
