Texas Lawmaker to Beto O'Rourke: 'My AR Is Ready for You'

Coming for your AR-15? O'Rourke scrambles Dems' gun message

Struggling Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke is getting desperate in his quest to appeal to the far-left base, even declaring on his campaign website Thursday night: "The president of the United States of America is a white supremacist".

O'Rourke, a former Texas congressman, responded to Cain's message shortly after it was posted, calling it a "death threat".

"My AR is ready for you Robert Francis", tweeted the 34-year-old Republican, using Mr O'Rourke's legal first name.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Twitter took Cain's tweet down. His comments come after two August mass shooting in Texas, including one in O'Rourke's hometown.

Meanwhile, a Texas state lawmaker sent a threatening tweet, which O'Rourke reposted with the message, "Clearly, you shouldn't own an AR-15-and neither should anyone else".

O'Rourke made the comment during his opening statement in the Democratic debate Thursday.

USA district judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco blocked the new policy from taking effect in late July. The 9th Circuit narrowed his order Tuesday with the Supreme Court decision following on Wednesday.

Thousands responded to the tweet before it was taken down, and Cain engaged with some. "If the high impact, high velocity round that - when it hits your body - shreds everyhing inside of your body because it was created to do that so that you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers, when we see that being used against children", he said. He singled out the AK-47 and the AR-15, a weapon used by a number of recent mass shooters. Many cited President Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric on immigrants and people of color for inspiring the act. "They're not normally people who are out there shooting deer with them". "The language you are using and the way you are using it is risky".

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey needled O'Rourke later, saying he was sorry it had taken the El Paso shooting for O'Rourke to embrace the position Booker already held, backing a mandatory buyback and national registration.

An O'Rourke spokesperson told The Verge that the campaign reported the tweet as a threat to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An outspoken supporter of Second Amendment rights, Cain was kicked out of the Texas Democratic Party convention in 2018 after he showed up with what appeared to be a sidearm and began handing out fake yard signs that said, "This home is a gun-free safe space", the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

He has the toughest stance on gun ownership of all the candidates and is committed to forcing owners of certain types of weapons to give them up.
