Yesterday, presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke claimed that one Texas lawmaker’s now-deleted tweet represented a death threat. The state representative’s name is Briscoe Cain of House District 128. O’Rourke, hoping to gather support for proposed gun control measures, also stated that this kind of statement showed that Cain shouldn’t own an AR-15—and neither should anyone else.” Afterward, many of Beto’s followers took it upon themselves to file a complaint with the Texas State Bar. The Bar could take action that may impact Cain’s ability to practice law in the state. As of the time of publishing, no such actions have yet occurred.
