  • O'Rourke: 'Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15'

Cain's provocation came shortly after a moderator at Thursday night's debate asked O'Rourke if his proposal to require assault rifle owners to sell their weapons to the government amounted to taking away people's guns.

Cain replied: "You're a child Robert Francis".

But as the debate wore on, pundits on the Twittersphere discovered that O'Rourke's campaign website had also been updated for debate night. The shooter used a semi-automatic version of an AK-47 to carry out the attack. Clearly, you shouldn't own an AR-15-and neither should anyone else.

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. But his forceful "hell, yes" on Thursday became one of the most memorable lines of the presidential debate.

"I am", the former Texas congressman responded, "if it's a weapon that was created to kill people on a battlefield".

Such weapons have become a topic of debate nationally after recent mass shootings - but particularly in Texas, where 22 people were fatally shot at a Walmart store in O'Rourke's home city of El Paso on August 3 and eight people were fatally shot by a suspect's shooting spree in the Midland-Odessa area on August 31.

Google to pay $1 billion in France to settle fiscal fraud probe
Google, part of Alphabet Inc, pays little tax in most European countries because it reports nearly all sales in Ireland. European countries have struggled to tax the profits of multinational tech companies derived in their jurisdictions.

An outline of O'Rourke's plan to "end the epidemic of gun violence" includes a pledge to implement a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons and a voluntary buy back program for handguns. "People were murdered. The language you are using and the way you are using it is risky".

Cain, an attorney, frequently uses his official social media accounts to air inflammatory and hyperbolic views. Typically, the publication explained, freshmen lawmakers are exempted from the list, but they cited Cain's "uninformed and belligerent performance".

Texas state Rep. Briscoe Cain.

Two hours after it was posted, Cain's tweet was removed.

"If you threaten to kill a presidential candidate you should not have a gun", he wrote.
