Because I’m the only one who ever got it done nationally. I beat the N.R.A. Twice. I got assault weapons banned. I got magazines that could not hold more than 10 rounds in them. I got them eliminated. Except we had a thing called an election with hanging chads in Florida and it was not reauthorized.
In addition to that, I passed the Brady Bill with waiting periods. I led that fight. But my friend to my right and others have, in fact, also given the gun manufacturers absolute immunity. Imagine if I stood here and said we would give immunity to drug companies. We would give immunity to tobacco companies.
That has caused carnage on our streets. 150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability. More than all the wars, including Vietnam, from that point on. Carnage on our streets.
And I want to tell you, if I’m elected: N.R.A., I’m coming for you, and gun manufacturers, I’m going to take you on, and I’m going to beat you. I’m the only one who has done it.

Bernie Sanders, Confronted on Immunity for Gun Manufacturers, Says That Was a ‘Bad Vote’
[Is, “I got magazines that could not hold more than 10 rounds in them. I got them eliminated” a big enough lie? Maybe not.
How about “…given the gun manufacturers absolute immunity”? Is that a big enough lie? Probably. But Biden can do better.
Biden takes a another swing at the biggest lie with, “150 million people have been killed since 2007”.
