Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain’s Law Firm Will Not Fire Him Despite Outrage Mob Pressure

Published

on

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.

Ankle Monitors are Now being Used on Louisville, Kentucky Residents Who Contract the Wuhan Virus

Published

on

Kentucky is taking draconian measures to keep individuals who catch the Wuhan Virus at home.

Louisville residents who come into contact with Wuhan Virus patients but do not isolate themselves are being forced to wear ankle bracelets.

A judge even ordered one resident to stay at home after not deciding to self-quarantine. According to a CNN affiliate WDRB, the person, identified as D.L. in the court order, is living with “someone who has tested positive for the illness and another person who is a presumptive case,” per an affidavit from Dr. Sarah Moyer, the director of the health department.

Due to his exposure to the Wuhan Virus, D.L. was instructed to stay at home last week. However, family members claimed that D.L. “leaves the house often.”

When D.L. did not respond or even comply with the health department’s messages, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Angela Bisig instructed the Department of Corrections to place a global positioning device on D.L. for the next two weeks. If D.L. goes out of the house again, he or she could face criminal charges, according to the WDRB report.

D.L. is not alone in having to wear ankle monitors to keep the virus from spreading. WDRB reported that there are three other known cases at the moment. Two other people who live in the same house — one who tested positive for the virus, and another who tested negative — were ordered to stay at home last week after both refused to self-quarantine.

WDRB also reported that another man was subject to house arrest after he left his house to go shopping despite having tested positive for the Wuhan Virus.

WDRB reports that Jefferson County courts have set up an on-call judge for these kinds of scenarios.

Under Kentucky’s current lockdown measures, only “essential” businesses can stay open.

Organizations providing charitable and social services can also stay open. These include food banks and places that offer food, shelter, and social services to economically disadvantaged or disabled people. However, these organizations must practice social distancing while doing their work.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has advised that all schools stay closed through May 1st and has implemented travel restrictions. The state is also releasing at least 186 prisoners convicted of “non-violent” crimes on commuted sentences. According to Michael Brown, the secretary of the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, prisoners have to find a place where they can stay and are then required to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.

Although not as draconian as states like California, which have infringed on gun rights by having municipalities declare gun stores as “non-essential”, Kentucky is beginning to take measures that would concern any advocate of civil liberties.
