Appearing With Glenn Beck, Doctor Lauded as ‘Conservative Hero’ Takes a Surprising Stance on Gun Control (VIDEO)

On Glenn Beck‘s radio show this week, newly-found conservative hero Dr. Benjamin Carson took a surprisingly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, saying that people shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons if they live in large cities.

Carson created controversy this year when during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., he went into a rant criticizing ObamaCare, “political correctness,” and tax policy — as Obama sat and listened. Many slammed the speech as inappropriate given that the event is traditionally non-political, but he was immediately lauded as a hero by many conservatives and was swarmed with speculation about a possible future in politics.

When Beck questioned Carson about the Second Amendment, Carson began with the typical pro-gun argument, saying that the Second Amendment has a purpose and that “people do have the right to have weapons.”

But when asked about semi-automatic weapons, the doctor replied: “It depends on where you live.”

“I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it,” Carson said.

He went on to add that if you live “out in the country somewhere by yourself, I have no problem.”

    Dr Ben Carson needs to stay in the operating room where he has been known as having awesome skills and leave politics to politicians.

    So…don’t let the liberals that live in the city have a semi-auto but let the Aryan’s in the rural communities can posses massive fir power.

    German citizens were disarmed to meet requirements of the Treaty of Versailles following World War I. In 1938 a German minister removed all restrictions on long guns, meaning anyone could have them, and restrictions were relaxed on permitting for pistols. Later that year Jews were prohibited from having firearms.

    Just keeps “goose steppin” into a reincarnated nightmare

    Dear Dr. Ben Carson:…Given that you are a member of the Medical Profession and a supposed well practiced physician..You of all people should realize that while there is a percentage of the population in big cities that should not have easy access to guns…there is an even larger percentage of mentally insane that dwell in rural and remote suburban areas!!..Sorry fella the rules and regulations should apply to ALL..not just a select few!
