The next shooting is right now, and you are doing nothing.
DON MCLAUGHLIN: No. He needs to get his ass out of here. This isn't the place to talk this over.
BETO O'ROURKE: You said this was unpredictable. This is totally predictable when you chose--
DON MCLAUGHLIN: (SHOUTING) Sir, you're out of line. Sir, you're out of line. Sir, you're out of line. Please leave this auditorium.
- Sir, you need to exit. You need to exit.
- Get out of here. Leave.
DON MCLAUGHLIN: I can't believe you're a sick son of a bitch that would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.
BETO O'ROURKE: This is on you until you choose to do something about it.
DON MCLAUGHLIN: It's on assholes like you. Why don't you get out of here.
- (SHOUTING) Go home!
- (CHANTING) Let him speak, let him speak, let him speak.
- How about the First Amendment?
