Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on NBC’s "Today" on Monday where he said the hero who shot the Texas church gunman should not have had the weapon he used to stop the murder spree.

Biden's remark came as a response to a question from someone in the audience who asked him to justify the Democrat’s call for more gun control — even though the shooter was stopped by a good guy with a gun.
"Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying," Biden said. "Assault weapons are . . . I wrote the last serious gun control law that was written and was law for 10 years, and it outlawed assault weapons and it outlawed weapons with magazines that had a whole lot of bullets and so you can kill a whole lot of people a lot more quickly" (RELATED: Gun Control Fail: TX Shooter Was Violent Felon Who Couldn't Have Any).
Biden continued by saying that it is rational that some people not own guns but that there is nothing that can be done if a crazy person obtains a gun legally.
