The backlash from State Representative Briscoe Cain and former Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Twitter squabble has not died down.
Last weekend, Cain’s law firm said that they are standing with their lawyer, no matter how badly the outrage mob wants them to fire Cain.
“Perhaps he should be fired. Perhaps you all should just go out of business,” a woman said in a voicemail message she left for Cain’s law firm.
Non-stop emails, phone calls, and voicemails have flooded Kevin Fulton’s law firm, Fulton Strahan Law Group, since last Friday
Fulton claims that 804 voicemails were left in a span of less than two days.
“We had to shut the phones off. They took my email address and signed us up for a bunch of different newsletters and spam and porn sites, everything they could find, trying to shut down the email system,” Fulton claimed.
Fulton said this commotion started hours after one of his colleagues, State Representative Briscoe Cain, went on Twitter, and responded to Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke’s statement about confiscating AR-15s.
Many on the Left, including O’Rourke, viewed Cain’s tweet, “My AR is ready for you Robert Francis” as a direct threat.
Last Saturday, O’Rourke still maintained that Cain’s comments were threatening.
“Threatening to introduce violence into our democracy and political process, he makes the case that no one should own a weapon that can kill people effectively, efficiently, at devastating numbers because it terrorizes and terrifies people. That’s what he sought to do over Twitter. No one should be able to do that,” O’Rourke said of Cain’s comments.
For Fulton, however, agreeing with either politician is not what he cares about. He believes this is about rights, and that’s why he’s not caving to the outrage mob.
“I went and I fought for this country for a reason, and it wasn’t for people to bully me into having someone give up their first or second amendment rights,” Fulton said.
Fulton is fully supporting Cain, stating that he will not fold under pressure to fire Cain, and will not let an outrage mob influence his decision-making.
“We fight for our clients. I would be remiss if I didn’t fight for my staff. That’s my family,” Fulton said.
The gun control debate is only getting more intense in Texas.
A state that has traditionally had some of the best gun laws in the nation, Texas is now facing unprecedented threats from Democratic politicians.
As the state becomes more competitive these threats will no longer be speculation.
It doesn’t help that Republicans like Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick are starting to give in to anti-gun pressure as well.
The next few years will be pivotal in deciding what the future of gun rights looks like in the Lone Star State.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?
Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.
At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.
The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.
That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:
“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”
One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.
The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.
President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”
According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:
- The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
- The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
- The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”
Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.
So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.
All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
