When gifted neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson spoke out at the National Prayer breakfast and communicated sound principles, people applauded him. Even I thought his speech was great and I wrote about it. Many were already making bumper stickers and t-shirts with “Ben Carson for President” on them. Well stop the presses. Carson, in a candid moment with Glenn Beck, completely fumbled the Second Amendment, and with that fumble goes any chance of real conservatives or libertarians backing him for office, or at least it should. Carson claimed that people who live in large cities shouldn’t be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons.
Ironically, Carson was an ROTC instructor for Freedom Outpost’s Kevin Fobbs and Fobbs communicated his respect for Carson and his appreciation for the lessons he learned from him in a recent article.
However, though Carson passed on political correctness when it came to the prayer breakfast with Barack Obama looking on not ten feet from where he spoke, on this issue he does not stand with the Constitution and one of the most basic duties of man and that is to be able to defend one’s self, family, community from attackers and tyrannical government.
