Ben Carson: Weapons Needed To Fight ‘Rogue’ U.S. Government
Conservative icon Dr. Ben Carson says gun rights must be protected in case citizens have to fight a “rogue” United States government and to help the military if we’re invaded.
“I think there are some weapons that are probably not appropriate, like, you know, tanks,” he explained. “And I’m not sure that people should have a rocket launcher in their bedroom. But, you know, conventional weapons, I don’t have any problem with.”
Carson observed that the point of the Second Amendment was to “give the populous the ability to assist the military in case of a foreign invasion.”
“But more importantly, it’s there because if we ever have a rogue government that wants to dominate the people, the people will have the ability to defend themselves,” he insisted. “We must always protect that right.”
