O'Rourke was speaking about the rifle used in the Uvalde mass shooting when the audience member chuckled during a campaign stop in Mineral Wells, Texas.
"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 of Vietnam to penetrate an enemy soldiers helmet at 500 feet and knock him down dead up against kids at five feet," O'Rourke said right before the audience member interrupted.
Video shared online by Travis Akers shows the crowd bursting into cheers and holding up Beto signs after he shut down the heckler.
O'Rourke has been campaigning his way through Texas ahead of the November gubernatorial elections, where he'll face the state's incumbent Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
