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.
The Amazon rainforest is one of the most beautiful and essential natural features on our planet. Yet, it is now in great danger as fires, raging for many weeks, threaten the “lungs” of Earth. We should be worried about the Amazon rainforest. But calls for the government to act are not the answer. If they give up ownership and privatize it, governments will provide the best way for the Amazon and other threatened natural resources to be saved. By doing so, they will introduce a beneficial profit motive.
