Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana was taken aback by a comment from a witness during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence.

He questioned Dr. Franklin N. Cosey-Gay and another witness on gun control and forgiveness for criminals.

“You said no one should be judged by the worst thing they have done in their lives,” Kennedy said. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO)

“If one of these young doctors sitting behind you, god forbid, walks out on the streets of Washington, D.C., and is raped or sodomized, you don‘t think the rapist should be judged?”

“I don‘t think it should be terminal, it shouldn’t be for the rest of their lives,” Cosey-Gay responded.

“You think we should forgive them and not give them any punishment?” Kennedy asked.

“You think nobody is responsible for their actions?”

“I believe in responsibility, but I believe in forgiveness,” Cosey-Gay said.

Cosey-Gay advocated for hospital-based violence intervention programs.
