    Victoria Jackson is under fire (again).

    The former Saturday Night Live player turned ultra-conservative blogger is taking the heat after comparing the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter in Newtown, Conn., to abortionists.

    So, what exactly did she have to say?

    "My friend Jim Riley posted: 'Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day?' It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old "dads" doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America," the comic wrote on her Facebook page Friday. "When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get."

    And that was just the beginning.

    "Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, "The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids ... They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own...," Jackson continued. "YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR. ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!"

    Facebookers responded to the post with fervor, calling her everything from "a complete whack job" to a "disgrace."

    But the Tea Party supporter continued her rant Sunday, posting a pro-gun image of Oklahoma City courthouse bomber Timothy McVeigh that included the caption, "Timothy McVeigh Didn't Use a Gun."

    "Murderers will murder with or without a gun. Guns are not the problem," it went on.

    Twenty children and six school employees were killed in the tragic shooting in Newtown on Friday after a gunman entered the elementary school and opened fire.
