“It’s important that people be put in a position where their Second Amendment rights are protected, but that they also don’t, as a consequence of the laws, unintendedly put themselves in harm’s way,” he said Sunday.

Biden, who once served as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he does not believe that citizens carrying concealed weapons keeps them safer from criminals.
