Speaking at the Conference of Mayors in San Francisco on Sunday, Democratic presidential contender Martin O’Malley shared a view on guns that most liberals would readily agree with.

“A single American life is worth more than all the guns in the United States,” the former Maryland governor said, according to Time reporter Phil Elliott.

The sentiment followed up on an email O’Malley sent out to supporters on Friday that targeted the National Rifle Association, while calling for stricter gun control laws.

O’Malley said he was “pissed,” and that America must “stop caving to special interest groups like the NRA.”

Social media users responded to a tweet from Elliott, as well as one from O’Malley’s Twitter account, to remind them of something called “the Constitution.”

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
