We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans.
- Bill Clinton

Actual Quote:
You know, we can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans to legitimately own handguns and rifles--it's something I strongly support--we can't be so fixated on that that we are unable to think about the reality of life that millions of Americans face on streets that are unsafe, under conditions that no other nation--no other nations--has permitted to exist.

basically, Clinton is talking about gun control in the U.S.
