MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts used a portion of Joe Biden’s speech at the dedication of a plaque recognizing the Americans lost in the Benghazi attack in order to make the case for gun control. Biden spoke about the risks State Department employees encounter overseas and the sacrifices families make: “No child should predecease their parents and noone should have to suffer the loss of their spouse, it’s not easy,” he said.

Replaying those remarks, Roberts claimed Biden was mourning “children as the victims of gun violence” noted that the vice president is set to make a new push for gun control.

Biden’s unedited remarks are below.

UPDATE: On The Cycle this afternoon, MSNBC host Touré issued an apology about using the Biden sound bite out of context, calling it “a producer error.” He said MSNBC regrets the error.
