Beto O'Rourke reports Texas legislator over rifle 'threat'

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". And that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa and Midland. "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. Clearly, you shouldn't own an AR-15-and neither should anyone else", O'Rourke tweeted in response, along with an image of Cain's tweet.

The Guardian reports: 'Earlier, Cain, a 34-year-old "conservative Republican" lawyer who represents a district outside of Houston, Texas, had mocked Twitter users who called his comment a threat of violence.

He said that, if enacted, he expected people would decide to comply with his new policy, because the government doesn't typically "go door to door searching people's homes to see if they're in fact breaking the law".

"You know, I called this out in no uncertain terms on August 3rd - and every day since then - and I was talking about it long before then, as well", O'Rourke replied.

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.

The U.S. Secret Service said Friday that O'Rourke is not now under the agency's protection and declined to comment further.

Further studies are required to estimate cloud coverage and the percentage of atmospheric water present, the researchers said. The James Webb Space Telescope , when it finally comes online, should be well-suited for exploring exoplanets like these.

His campaign has even produced a shirt with the slogan.

The Republican talking point machine immediately began the messaging that all Democrats want to take all guns. Many cited President Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric on immigrants and people of color for inspiring the act.

Since O'Rourke's run for Senate, there have been several mass shootings in the US, including in El Paso, which he has said has changed his view on gun control.

I'm a gun owner.

He received praise from his fellow Democratic contenders on Thursday night for his actions following the shooting in El Paso.
