Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson blamed gun control for the extent of the Holocaust.

In an interview Thursday on CNN, Carson said fewer people would have been killed by the Nazis had more citizens been armed.

“I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed,” he said. “I’m telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first.”

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer was challenging Carson over claims in his latest book that gun control has historically been a predicate for tyranny.
