It’s a lie, and if he really did check his Twitter feed, he knows it:
.@davidfrum Nobody heckled him. Here is the unedited video ==> twitchy.com/2013/01/29/out… Please retract this.

@bow2kaos @twitchyteam @davidfrum He Asked a Question, there was silence, then they answered him with the 2nd Amendment. HE WAS NOT HECKLED

Update: Frum triples down:
Hint: if the moderator of a public meeting says you will be cleared from room if you don’t shut up, you are heckling
— davidfrum (@davidfrum) January 29, 2013
In other words: Don’t believe what you see on the video, because every moderator of every public meeting is always completely impartial and fair.
Keep digging, David.
Update: A tipster reminds us that, back in December when union goons in Michigan assaulted Steven Crowder, Frum seemed much more concerned about “selectively edited” video.
