I Want To Believe He Said This, But It Sounds Too Convenient

From Joe Huffmann's blog:
The Brady bill will make the streets of America so safe that our nation’s police will not even need to carry guns anymore.
William Jefferson Clinton
On TV, while signing the Brady bill in 1993.
Quoted in Sheriff Richard Mack’s book, The Magic of Gun Control.

Does anyone have video of this?  My readers have found thes signing ceremony and say Bogus.

The complete signing ceremony is available on YouTube at

I skipped through his remarks in 5 second increments and cannot find anything approaching the quote.

I think the quotation is bogus, or at least he did not say it during the the Brady Bill signing ceremony. The complete signing ceremony is here; Clinton's remarks start at 20 min into the video.

Perhaps he said it during some other signing bill—assault weapons ban, perhaps?

I'm very skeptical too.

I got it from Alan Korwin who I have a high degree of confidence in. But maybe he didn't verify it.
