Former U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, claimed during a Monday MSNBC appearance that Jesus would not support "everyone walking around with weapons of war."
McCaskill, who served as a senator from Missouri from early 2007 until early 2019, described Jesus as a "peaceful man" and said, "I believe very firmly that Jesus would be shocked at what our country is allowing to happen."
McCaskill's comments came in the wake of a mass shooting in Allen, Texas, on Saturday that left eight victims dead.
People on social media pointed out that McCaskill is pro-choice.
"Now do abortion, Claire," one person wrote in response to McCaskill's comments.
"I think Jesus would take a dim view of abortion on demand, transgender child sexual mutilation and human trafficking too but @clairecmc promotes her own gospel," another person tweeted.
"For people who love abortion proclaiming anything about knowing what Jesus would think or do is the most outlandish form of self righteousness," someone else declared.
Left-wing California Gov. Gavin Newsom appeared to advocate for gun control in response to the Texas shooting, tweeting on Saturday, "This is freedom?? To be shot at a mall? Shot at school? Shot at church? Shot at the movies? We have become a nation that is more focused on the right to kill than the right to live. This is not what the American people want. Do your d*** job, Congress."
Actor Dean Cain responded to Newsom's post by writing, "I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." According to monticello.org, that sentence is a translation of Latin that Thomas Jefferson included in a letter to James Madison.
