Want to delete data outside of a custom extent

Hi, I'm back.

So I've successfully clipped the extent of all of my layers by drawing a polygon from the Draw toolbar and then going into the Data Frame Properties of the layer and clipping by that polygon.  However, when I go into the data attribute table for any of my point feature classes, they still have the same number of records as they did before the clip.

I need to actually remove all data that is outside of the clipped extent from my tables.  Not sure if it would help anyway, but I apparently don't have whatever license is needed for the Erase tool.

Is this doable without it?
