Ben Carson says he would have confronted Oregon shooter
The presidential hopeful was asked by Fox News "Fox and Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade about what would happen if a gunman pointed a gun at him and asked him his religion.
"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,'" Carson said.
Carson's photo of himself holding up a sign reading "I am a Christian" went viral following reports that the shooter at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, had asked students whether they Christian.
