In the Oregon tragedy, Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, reportedly asked his victims if they were Christians before executing his English professor and eight students at Umpqua Community College in rural Roseburg.

“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 said.
Speaking with Malzberg on Newsmax TV, Carson — in second place behind Donald Trump in several national GOP presidential polls — said he believes Americans are aware Obama has not said much about the persecution of Christians.
