On September 12, 2019, Twitter deleted a tweet from State Representative Briscoe Cain’s account after he wrote that his “AR is ready” for former congressman Beto O’Rourke.
This came in response to O’Rourke’s remark where he said “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” when asked about his civilian disarmament plan.
According to The Hill, Twitter informed the news outlet that the tweet from Cain violated its rules concerning violent threats and subsequently had it removed early on Friday morning.
“The Tweet was in violation of the Twitter Rules, which prohibit violent threats,” a Twitter spokesperson claimed.
Replying to O’Rourke’s call for AR-15 confiscations, Cain said,“My AR is ready for you Robert Francis.”
The former congressman from El Paso replied by declaring that Cain’s tweet was a “death threat.”
He then added, “Clearly, you shouldn’t own an AR-15—and neither should anyone else.”
Cain got the final word by calling O’Rourke “a child.”
Following the CNN debate, O’Rourke lauded Twitter for deleting a tweet from someone “with a weapon of war threatening to use it against somebody who is talking about gun violence in this country.”
A spokesperson for O’Rourke claimed that his campaign reported the post to the FBI.
“Anytime you have somebody threatening to use violence against somebody in this country to resolve a political issue — or really for any reason — that’s a matter for law enforcement,” O’Rourke commented.
Big League Politics reached out to Cain for his take on the situation.
Cain described his ordeal as “ridiculous” and said that we might as well “remove ‘Come and Take It’ from Texas history if O’Rourke’s demands were taken to their logical conclusion.
The Texas State Representative described O’Rourke as a “candidate running for president threatening to take away people’s rights.”
Since the El Paso mass shooting, gun politics has become heated in the Lone Star State.
The growing cultural acceptance of civilian disarmament and Texas’s changing electoral demographics make the threat of gun control a harsh reality in the near future.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
