Beto O’Rourke Snaps at Heckler at Town Hall Event, ‘Not Funny…Motherf***er!’ (VIDEO)
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has competition this year in the race for governor. I don’t think that it’s much of a challenge, but Beto O’Rourke is running regardless. He thinks that he stands a chance for some reason as he thinks that banning guns in the state is going to help protect Texans.
He must have forgotten about everyone pouring in over the border and how they literally don’t care about gun laws. Texans aren’t going to vote for him over Abbott. It’s not even close.
As of right now, Abbot is holding a commanding lead. There isn’t a single poll that shows O’Rourke having the lead. When you look at some of the polls, Abbott is actually ahead by double digits.
Anyway, last week, Beto snapped on a man during a campaign event in which he was talking about guns.
“I’m gonna 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 gentlemen that says 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,” Beto said.
Then you hear what appears to be someone laughing.
“It may be funny to you motherf**ker, but it is not funny to me,” Beto said to an Abbott supporter.

I’m not sure why he laughed unless it was because he said that they were originally designed for the battlefields in Vietnam, because that much was wrong. It’s true that they can shoot 500 feet. Practically any gun can do that though.
