DNC vice chair for civic engagement and voter protection Karen Carter Peterson unleashed the wrath of Twitter when she tweeted “Repeal the Second Amendment” on Tuesday.

The Louisiana state senator tweeted out Justice John Paul Stevens’ op-ed from last week in The New York Times calling for repealing the Second Amendment.

Her tweet got only 50 likes and just over 70 retweets, but it conjured up plenty of negative responses.

Carter Peterson did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.
