Ben Carson said the Holocaust might have been prevented if Jewish people had guns



Ben Carson said Adolph Hitler’s mass murder of Jews “would have been greatly diminished” if German citizens had not been disarmed by the Nazi regime.

Appearing on CNN last night, Carson reiterated the claims made in his new book, A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties.

‘Just clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would six million Jews have been slaughtered?’ host Wolf Blitzer asked.

Carson questionably replied: ‘I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed… I’m telling you that there is a reason that these dictatorial people take the guns first.’

The comment was similar to arguments Carson made following last week’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, in which he defended the Second Amendment and suggested the victims should have fought the gunman.

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and popular contender for the Republican nomination, has generated headlines repeatedly for speaking his mind.
