Before conservatives jump on the bandwagon for Dr. Ben Carson’s you may want to review his expressed beliefs on gun control.
Appearing on Glenn Beck‘s radio show this past week, Dr. Benjamin Carson took a vastly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, claiming you shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons in large cities.
When asked by Beck for his thoughts on the Second Amendment, Carson gave the popular pro-gun argument: “There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons.”
But when asked whether people should be allowed to own “semi-automatic weapons,” the doctor replied: “It depends on where you live.”
“I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it,” Carson elaborated.
However, if you live “out in the country somewhere by yourself” and want to own a semi-automatic weapon, he added, “I’ve no problem with that.”
Ben Carson says he is not running for president but he is making the media rounds as if he is planning too.
Then there is a group raising money in case he heeds the call, Ben Carson for president. We promise you—for real and sure—if Ben Carson does not run for president, that group will not give anyone their money back. If you listened closely to the video, above, you heard Dr. Carson give a defense of that group, “they are building infrastructure in case I run.”
