Oregon Dem Slams Ben Carson on Gun Control

The recent mass school shooting at Umpqua Community College highlighted the need for gun control laws in the United States.

Most Republicans took to the media, blasting the shooters mental health and avoiding the important issue at hand, the ease of access to guns and our society’s acceptance of them as a normal part of our culture.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) slammed Ben Carson and other Republicans for defending gun ownership in the wake of such a brutal tragedy.

“When comments like Republican candidate Ben Carson condemning President Obama’s decision to visit and console the families in Roseburg in a private meeting, that somehow he would wait for the next one? It’s stunning,” Blumenauer said.

“I can’t imagine a more callous, heartless remark than that of Dr. Carson who would wait until ‘the next one,’” Blumenauer continued.
