Dr. Ben Carson suggested that lawmakers should take another look at the Second Amendment during an appearance on MSNBC Thursday.

“Let’s put on the table — what is the reason for the Second Amendment?” he told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “And, is there a reason that we need to change those things right now?”

“Let’s put the data on the table and let’s talk about it like intelligent people rather than getting in our respective corners and hurling insults. We’ll never solve anything that way,” the retired neurosurgeon said.

“I think the people who are protesting certainly feel that they are absolutely, 100 percent right,” he said of the Democratic House sit-in.

“But of course the people on the other side feel that they’re 100 percent right too. That’s why we need to get back to a point of having civil discussion.”

To say that people on social media weren’t necessarily onboard would be an understatement.
