Ron Warren owns a gun and ammo store in Mineral Wells, so he’s in the business of bullets. Yesterday he had to dodge one launched by Beto O’Rourke.

He attended a Town Hall meeting on August 10th hosted by the Texas gubernatorial candidate which was held in the Crazy Water Hotel in Mineral Wells.

Warren was standing with a group of Governor Abbott supporters at the back of the room and appeared to laugh out loud during Beto’s assault rifle speech as he discussed Uvalde. Beto responded to Warren’s laugh with an explicative directed at him.

Warren says he was not even laughing at the Uvalde situation and sat down with Mineral Wells Area News for an exclusive interview to tell his story.

MWAN was unable to find any information that indicated O’Rourke is unable to purchase a fire arm. He was arrested for two separate misdemeanors in the 1990s, including one for a DWI. Both cases were dismissed.
