Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke has reported a Texas lawmaker to the Federal Bureau of Investigation after he tweeted that his assault rifle "is ready for you".

"My AR is ready for you Robert Francis", Cain tweeted, referring to O'Rourke by his birth name.

It got worse. A Texas representative, Briscoe Cain, issued a Tweet that, well, judge for yourself.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Twitter took Cain's tweet down.

Cain didn't immediately respond to a reporter's request for comment.

Twitter took the comment down within hours because it violated a rule forbidding threats of violence and O'Rourke's campaign planned to report the tweet to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to CNN. "If you purchased that AR-15, if you own it, keep it".

Former congressman Beto O'Rourke's vow to take AR-15s from gun owners appears to represent a stark reversal from his failed Senate run past year.

It was angling in on off-stump and nibbling away just enough to second slip, where Ben Stokes took a good low catch. The batsman pushed unnecessarily at a wide one and Steve Smith held on to complete a juggling catch at second slip.

Cain shot back: "You're a child Robert Francis". A gunman who told police he was targeting Mexicans opened fire at a Walmart on August 3 and killed 22 people, most of whom had Hispanic last names.

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

During MSNBC's post-debate coverage liberal columnist Eugene Robinson said it was useful for O'Rourke to take the stance, saying that automatically made the voluntary buyback the "moderate position that we can all come together on". "They're not normally people who are out there shooting deer with them". "People were murdered. The language you are using and the way you are using it is risky".

Since Aug. 3, when a gunman armed with an AK-style rifle killed 22 people at a Walmart in O'Rourke's hometown of El Paso, the candidate has been an outspoken proponent of stricter gun-control measures, including mandatory buybacks.

A spokesman for Mr O'Rourke said the Texas state legislator had been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In 2018, police were called to remove Mr Cain from the state Democratic convention after he showed up with a pistol and pro-gun pamphlets, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
