Some of the crowd shouted "Second Amendment!"

And? It's in the Constitution.

I'd call that heckling.

Of course you would.

And as for the pause... the guy just lost his son. At one point, he said to the crowd.. something to the effect of "I wonder what these people would say if it was their son lying in the casket and they were looking down at their son with a bullet hole in his forehead."

Actually what he said was, "I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips."

But thanks for proving my point: he was there to score emotional points and shame the pro-gun side into capitulating to his argument. That's an exceedingly cheap and dishonest tactic, and shame on whatever jerk it was that put this poor guy up to it.
