So using Easter as a reason to share a holiday-themed meme, the 44-year-old shared a popular image of three people dressed in Easter bunny costumes, holding what appears to be semi-automatic rifles with "come and take it" written below the image.
Trump Jr. shared it with the caption "#easter" on Sunday.

However, people who saw the image did not find it funny as the US experienced three mass shootings over Easter weekend.
On Sunday, two teenage boys were killed and eight other people were wounded after two people exchanged gunfire at a party in Pittsburgh.
In Furman, South Carolina, nine people were injured during a shooting at a nightclub on Sunday just hours after nine people were injured during a mass shooting at Columbiana Centre mall in Columbia, South Carolina.
People took to Twitter to share their discontent with Trump Jr.'s post.

I get that the whole point of this is to troll and get Democrats to go crazy, but in all honesty it\u2019s not a coincidence that violence in America - often off the wall, hair trigger violence - has skyrocketed since the Trumps came to dominate political debate in America.pic.twitter.com/IdaDYQOqky
