Good At One Thing

I've known people like this, though they usually don't decide to run for president. They go through life, doing their thing, and remain blissfully unaware of basically everything else.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked him: “Just clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would six million Jews have been slaughtered?”

Carson 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.”

If only those silly Jews were packing!

Aside from the general offensiveness of invoking the holocaust in this way, no a few rifles and pistols are not any protection against state tyranny. The state always has more and bigger guns.
