Former President Bill Clinton discussed how politicians should go about passing more gun-control legislation, his sadness that his assault weapons ban has expired and where public opinion splits on gun control during a recent event at Georgetown University.
Clinton said that politicians should measure the intensity of the opposition when introducing gun-control legislation, intensity that he believes can be overcome in the current debate over guns.
He went on to add that he believes the difference of American opinions on gun control is primarily between urban and rural citizens.
He then channeled Vice President Joe Biden, saying: “If you live in a city and you think you need protection of your home, you’re way better off with a shotgun than an assault weapon. Trust me. It’s not even close.”
