Ben Carson's Popeyes Story Adds To His Narrative On Guns
Ben Carson said he once had a gun held to him at a Popeyes, but the story doesn't appear to be quieting the uproar over his Oregon shooting comments.By Samantha Crook | October 8, 2015
Ben Carson revealed Wednesday he once had a gun pulled on him at a Popeyes Louisiana Chicken restaurant in Baltimore, and it's adding to some of the criticism he's received about his comments on gun control.
During a Sirius XM Radio interview, Carson said he told the gunman, "I believe that you want the guy behind the counter."
That encounter is seemingly at odds with his controversial statements about the recent mass shooting in Oregon, comments some criticized as judgmental of the people who lost their lives.
