Father Michael Pfleger was heckled on Thursday by pro-gun advocates while he gave a message at the St. George Catholic Church in Tinley Park, Illinois.

Pro-gun hecklers booed Pfleger and claimed he was violating their rights, noted WGN-TV (video below).

According to CBS Chicago, the Illinois State Rifle Association urged its members to show up at what it called a gun control recruitment event at the church.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

"I'm neither a gun-grabber, nor am I against the Second Amendment. I want people who own guns to be held responsible for the guns that they own," Pfleger stated in the church to mostly applause by attendees.

Pfleger did say he wanted a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, which brought jeering from pro-gun folks, CBS Chicago reported.
