Beto O'Rourke already had an uphill battle in his campaign against Senator Ted Cruz and it didn't get any easier this week. O'Rourke, a Democrat, told a crowd at SXSW in Austin that civilians shouldn't be able to buy AR-15's.

O'Rourke doesn't support the 2nd Amendment and Texans will respond at the polls. Is it too early for him to concede the race?
