Ben Carson Would've Confronted The Oregon Shooter

On Tuesday, GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson spoke with "Fox & Friends" about the Oregon shooting. He said "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.'"

On Thursday, a gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon killing nine people and wounding nine others. On Friday, President Obama is expected to visit families of the victims amid a previously scheduled four-day swing across the West Coast for political fundraisers and events.

Carson accused Obama of grandstanding by saying "Imagine, a politician politicizing something. When do we get to the point where we have people who actually want to solve our problems, rather than just politicize everything? I think that's what the American people are so sick and tired of."

Carson was asked if he would make the trip if he was president. He said he wouldn't go if the community didn't want him to. Last week, Obama said the shooting was "something we should politicize."
