Sanders: ‘In 1988 I Lost an Election’ over Banning Assault Weapons

‘Back in 1988 I lost an election because I do not think it was a wise thing to have assault weapons being sold throughout this country’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: "And the straw man provision so that if you walk in legally and buy a gun and sell it to criminals, that should be against the law. I very strongly support what President Obama is trying to do. But I want to reiterate that back in 1988 I lost an election because I did not think it was a wise thing to have assault weapons being sold throughout this country."
