Republican party presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said President Obama would have reacted differently had the Oregon gunman focused on killing Muslims than Christians.
In an interview with Steve Maltzberg of NewsMax, Carson commented that Obama focused more on advocating stricter gun control in his news conference rather than focusing the religious aspect and the gunman’s personality.
“He [Obama]would have had a seizure over it.” referring how Obama would have reacted had the gunman targeted Muslims rather than Christians.

Carson went on to comment
Remember, he’s been very reticent to mention Christians in the Middle East who are being massacred as well.
“I’m not sure why he has so much trouble actually articulating the words. It does make you wonder a little bit.”
Carson went on to comment that Obama focused more on advocating stricter gun control in his news conference rather than focusing the religious aspect and the gunman’s personality.
Several survivors of the Umpqua Community College massacre revealed the gunman asked victims to state their religion before he shot them. Those who said they were Christian were shot in the head. If the intended victim said they were other than Christian, they were shot in the leg.
