Just as it's easy for President Obama to say we should "politicize" the shooting at Umpqua Community College and that "common sense gun laws" would have stopped such a shooting, it is equally easy for Ben Carson to say that if confronted by a gunman that he would have rushed the shooter. Carson told Fox & Friends, "Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me, I would say, ‘Hey guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.'"
Chances are that he, along with nearly all of us, will never find himself in that position. And, unlike nearly all of us, there is a good chance he will soon be afforded Secret Service protection. So in the event he is confronted by a gunman, it would be the Secret Service that takes responsibility for his security.
