Republican candidate Ben Carson continued his controversial remarks about guns Thursday — suggesting in a new interview that the Jews may have been able to diminish the likelihood of the Holocaust if they were armed.
Carson made the remarks, which drew swift condemnation — on CNN. He said that passengers on Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11, helped avoid further tragedy by rushing the gunman.
In Carson’s new book “A Perfect Union,” Carson writes that “through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”
On CNN, Carson was asked: “But just to clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would 6 million Jews have been slaughtered?”
