Chris Matthews on Carson's Gun Comments: "Anything To Take The Heat Off The Killer," "Blaming The Victim"


On Wednesday night's edition of MSNBC's Hardball, host Chris Matthews reacted to Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson encouraging those under the threat of an active shooter to rush the gunman.

"In a time of great stress like that one might not know exactly what to do," Carson said on FOX News' Kelly File earlier this week. "And to judge them and sound like you are judging them. I'm not judging them at all but these incidents continue to occur. I doubt this is the last one. I want to plant the seed in people's mind so if this happens again they don't all get killed."

"Anything to take the heat off the killer," Chris Matthews reacted. "Blaming the victims and leaving the killer off the hook."
