What can you say?

au.news.yahoo.com/quee...ing-range/


I will mention that the media here only runs negative firearm related stories.

It is sad news. What is sickening is that the anti-gun "liberals" are rejoicing in his death. I was so mad earlier to day that I was almost in tears reading some of the comments those people had Tweeted.

I've already seen this being used by the anti's as an example of how even trained firearms users are helpless when attacked, so ordinary citizens wont have a chance.
Those using this are lower than snakes. Mad

You nailed it there I think.

There were three men - Kyle - the most lethal sniper in US history - his buddy (that's mate for you guys down under) and the killer who was a reserve marine who completed his 4 years of active duty.
The killer shot both men while they were doing some recoil therapy to help the marine reservist with his PTSD.

Sad story - bad outcome. My thoughts go to the families and friends of all involved.

What a waste, whatever Chris Kyle did in the service of his country and I have read his book. Noone deserves that kind of ending. He was doing some very positive things both humanitarian and his company has probably saved a lot of LEOs with his trainings school.
Whats worse is his family will suffer the most.
RIP Chris

I've received this from about 5 or 6 different sources...a terrible ending to a good life. This man was doing whatever he could to help his fellow ex-soldiers come to terms with their disabilities. To have this happen is beyond terrible. It has raised a couple of questions in my mind, but now is not the time to air them.

RIP Kyle...your job is done mate. Salute

I'm with you Vince on some questions, but now isn't the time.
God Bless this Hero.
