DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Robert 'Beto' O'Rourke says he received a death threat from a Texas lawmaker after he discussed his proposal assault weapons ban at last night's Democrat debate.

Shortly after O'Rourke outlined his proposed plan, Houston area State Rep Briscoe Cain, a Republican, tweet " My AR is ready for you Robert Francis."

Twitter deleted the message because it violates rules about threats and violence.

O'Rourke says he plans to report the tweet to the FBI.

Cain responded by calling O'Rourke a child.
