A survivor of the Roseburg, Oregon tragedy is upset by comments by Ben Carson that he wouldn’t have just stood there while being shot.

“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 had said.

Carson’s latest comments come as backlash has grown in response to his “Fox and Friends” interview.

Mathew Downing, who survived the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon after being dramatically spared by the gunman, criticized Carson’s answer on Wednesday.

“I’m fairly upset he said that. Nobody could truly understand what actions they would take like that in a situation unless they lived it,” he told CNN via Facebook.
