Amen Clois..........he is the only choice among those I listed....in my opinion. Dr. Carson is a rare combination of integrity, intelligence, common-sense, decency and a man I pray God will put in some critical leadership position of our nation...........e.g. Presidency..........
Do you know his stance on the 2nd Amendment?
Appearing on Glenn Beck‘s radio show this past week, Dr. Benjamin Carson took a vastly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, claiming you shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons in large cities.
Carson became a newfound conservative hero last month when he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and laid out a series of criticisms of ObamaCare, political correctness, and tax policy right in front of the president himself. Many called the speech “inappropriate” given the apolitical nature of the event, but many conservatives lauded Carson for his “bold” and “sensible” suggestions for policy reform.
Asked by Beck for his thoughts on the Second Amendment, Carson gave the popular pro-gun argument: “There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons.”
But when asked whether people should be allowed to own “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 elaborated.
However, if you live “out in the country somewhere by yourself” and want to own a semi-automatic weapon, he added, “I’ve no problem with that.”
He is a wonderful person, a wonderful example, but he is contradictory on this issue. You either have the right or you don't. This is far too wishy-washy for me. He should be educating, not enhancing confusion and setting the stage for double-speak.
In the midst of crazy people IN cities like Baltimore, Chicago, New York, LA and others, is exactly
where YOU and each of should have an AR inside the home for defense. Heller spoke to that defense.
District of Columbia v. Heller (2008)
"Miller stands only for the proposition that the Second Amendment right, whatever its nature, extends only to certain types of weapons. It is particularly wrongheaded to read Miller for more than what it said, because the case did not even purport to be a thorough examination of the Second Amendment."
