DENVER (AP) -- Another man is facing allegations he threatened a state legislator during the heated debate over gun control in Colorado.

Denver prosecutors say David Cassidy is accused of leaving Sen. Andy Kerr a threatening voicemail March 4, the day Senate committees passed a series of bills tightening restrictions on guns.

Cassidy faces a felony charge of attempting to influence a public official and a misdemeanor harassment charge. KMGH-TV in Denver reports Cassidy said the message wasn't meant in a threatening manner.

Earlier this month, Franklin Sain was charged with attempting to influence a public official and harassment based on ethnicity after Rep. Rhonda Fields received messages laced with profanity and racial slurs. Sain denies threatening Fields.

Sain is to be arraigned April 22.

Cassidy is due in court April 15.
