Ben Carson recently entertained the Fox & Friends "nutty"
congregation audience with the following regarding the recent mass murder in Oregon.
I have long posited, and will continue to take the position, Ben Carson has serious mental issues.
After much discussion and specific probing from friendly media (AKA Fox News), the zany GOP presidential campaign top echelon candidate, joined CBS this morning for more nuttiness. He states he wants to tell people what to do. Carson just cannot imagine, millions upon millions do not give a damn about his suggestion. His words are simply Fox News like machismo without regard for the reality of the environment in which a killer carefully planned his slaughter.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his comments that he wouldn’t have just “stood there” during the Oregon shooting, saying on CBS’s This Morning that he was just trying to prevent future tragedies.
“What did you mean when you said “I would not just stand there?” asked CBS’ Norah O’Donnell.
“I want to plant in people’s minds what to do in a situation like this,” Carson said. “Because unfortunately, this is probably not going to be the last time this happens.”

“Do you believe the victims in Oregon just stood there?” she asked.
“From the indications that I got, they did not rush the shooter,” Carson responded. “The shooter can only shoot one person at a time, he cannot shoot a whole group of people. And so the idea is overwhelm him so not everybody gets killed.”
But O’Donnell pointed out that one victim Chris Mintz did rush the shooter, but only ended up shot seven times. “That is exactly what should be done,” Carson said. “If everybody does that, the likelihood of him killing as many people diminishes quite significantly.”
He denied that he was being insensitive to victims. “…We live in a culture now where people decide everything you say, we need to set up battle lines and we need to get on this side of it or that side of it, rather than collectively trying to figure out how we solve the problem. It’s sort of an immature attitude but it seems to be something that’s rampant in America today.”
