Ben Carson’s Dramatic Showdown With A Gunman: Here’s How He Reacted

Dr. Ben Carson

2016 GOP Presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson was part of an armed robbery situation many years ago at a Popeye’s, Carson says.

According to The Hill:

“GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson, under fire for advice about what to do when facing a gunman, late Wednesday recounted the time when a gun was pointed at him.

“I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeye’s,” Carson told host Karen Hunter on Sirius XM Radio, referencing an incident at a Baltimore fast-food restaurant.

“[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.’”

Carson sparked outrage on Tuesday by arguing that he would have physically attacked the shooter during last week’s rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore.

“Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me,” Carson said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

“I would say, ‘Everybody attack,’” he added. “’He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.’”
