Ben Carson says he would have led an effort to stop the shooter who killed 13 people last week in Roseburg, Oregon, had he been there during the attack.
During an interview of Fox & Friends Tuesday, host Brian Kilmeade asked the GOP presidential candidate what he would do if a gunman asked him, “What religion are you?” The shooter allegedly asked his victims their religion before shooting them and opted to fatally injure those who responded that they were Christian.
“Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me,” Carson responded. “I would say, ‘Hey guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.'”
This is not the first time that Carson has weighed in on the shooting. Last Friday afternoon, Carson sent a tweet that went viral, proclaiming “I am A Christian.”
