Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is taking a lot of heat for lots of crazy comments about mass shootings, abortions, and women. Now, he’s claiming that he got held at gunpoint outside of a Popeye’s in Baltimore and told the criminal to rob the store instead.
“I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeye’s,” Carson told radio host Karen Hunter. “[A] guy comes in, put the gun in my ribs,” he added. “And I just said, ‘I believe that you want the guy behind the counter.’”
That doesn’t sound like the heroic candidate who said that he would rally a classroom full of people to attack a mass shooter. “Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me,” said Carson on Fox News. His comments get worse.
During a Facebook Q&A, Carson said revoking the 2nd Amendment would be more tragic than any dead body caused by gun violence. “There is no doubt that this senseless bloodshed is breathtaking — but I never saw a body with a bullet hole that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away,” he said.
Carson, as an ardent pro-lifer, doesn’t seem to care about life once it gets outside the womb. He’d rather protect gun rights than people’s lives.
