Beto O’Rourke Confronts Heckler Over Uvalde Shooting: ‘It may be funny to you motherfucker…”

During a town hall event on Wednesday, Texas gubernatorial candidate, Beto O’Rourke, lashed out at heckler who laughed as he talked about the recent Uvalde mass shooting.

“I’m going to make sure that now, 11 weeks since we lost 19 kids and their two teachers, shot to death with a weapon originally designed for use in combat, legally purchased by an 18-year-old who did not try to obtain one when he was 16 or 17 but followed the law that’s on the books, ladies and gentleman, that says that you can buy not one, you can buy two or more if you want to, AR-15s, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and take that weapon that was originally designed for use on the battlefields in Vietnam to penetrate an enemy soldier’s helmet at 500 feet and knock him down dead…”

At that point, a man in the audience can be heard laughing at what Beto was saying. Without missing a beat, Beto spun around to face the heckler and said:

“Up against kids at 5 feet… it may be funny to you, motherfucker, but it’s not funny to me, OK?”

Many people at the event stood up, clapped, and cheered Beto’s response to the heckler.
