Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Alyssa Milano are set to have a real life showdown after they had a viral spat on Twitter over gun rights. As Fox News reports:
After engaging in a public spat over gun violence via Twitter following recent shooting rampages in Odessa and El Paso, Texas, among other places, Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Alyssa Milano will try to table their differences as they come together to talk gun reform…
I’d love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, @tedcruz and also, 1 Peter 4:8.
I’ll be in DC next week. We can live-stream the meeting so the American people can hear your bullshit 1st hand. https://t.co/S3ljfjjOtG

Although details surrounding the meeting have yet to be announced, Milano tweeted in a response to Cruz on Monday that she would be traveling to Washington next week and hoped to live-stream the conversation “so the American people can hear your bulls— 1st hand.”
Cruz responded to the “Charmed” alum’s proposal:
“I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution,” Cruz wrote. “If we can have a civil & positive conversation — in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest — despite our political differences, that might help resolve the discord in our Nation.”
