Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is on a roll in his defense of the Second Amendment, first taking on actress Alyssa Milano, then turning his attention to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. 

His exchange with Lightfoot came after the mayor took issue with him pointing to Chicago as an example of gun control not working. 

Lightfoot argued that a majority of the illegal firearms recovered from the city come from out of state—those “dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation.” She then called on him to “keep our name out of your mouth.”

In a series of tweets, Cruz then pointed out why her “anger is misplaced.”

He then retweeted a post by talk show host Joe Pags noting that Lightfoot has completely missed the point.
