He doesn’t hold back on this one.
We’ve said for some time now that Republican presidential contender Ben Carson isn’t as passive as he seems. Recently, he’s said some things that are sure to make those who think he is too quiet to lead to reconsider their point of view.
Case in point: Carson posted a response to a question on his Facebook page Monday night when he was asked how the Oregon shooting might have changed his position regarding the Second Amendment.
Carson answered, “I grew up in the slums of Detroit. I saw plenty of gun violence as a child. Both of my cousins were killed on the streets. As a Doctor, I spent many a night pulling bullets out of bodies.”
“There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking – but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away,” he wrote.
Carson went on to write, “Serious people seek serious solutions. The Left would prefer to use these tragedies to advance a political agenda.”
Carson added that those supporting tighter gun legislation would also believe that someone who executes Christians for their faith would somehow simply obey those new gun laws.
It is that kind of skewed logic that explains a lot of the issues we face today, Carson added.
