This isn't really a thread about Chris Kyle, it is a thread about the circumstances of how and where he was murdered and by who.
We have heard over and over that "gun free zones" are the cause of shooters being able to kill people. Chris Kyle was at a gun range, he had guns,
his friend Chad Littlefield had guns...so how could he have possibly been killed?
I remember people claiming that if there were just ONE person in the Aurora theater, the whole thing would have been prevented. If there was just ONE
teacher armed at Newtown, then no kids would have died that day. So what happened with Kyle? Not only was he armed, his friend was armed...and they
were both highly trained in using firearms...and yet neither of them could stop Routh from gunning them down.
But let's look at who murdered Kyle...Eddie Routh. Here is a man who should clearly not be owning a firearm...I know I know...he is a veteran, how
dare I try to disarm a veteran. Him being a veteran has nothing to do with it, him having mental issues and previously threatening to kill people has
everything to do with it.
In September, police in his hometown of Lancaster, Texas, apprehended him when he allegedly threatened to kill his parents and himself after his
father Raymond threatened to sell his gun. The cops found Routh shoeless, shirtless and drunk.
This man should not have been allowed to own or carry a gun. But because people are so sensative about sensible gun control, you now have a decorated
American veteran dead. But hey, at least crazy people can still own guns...I guess that is a win for the 2nd amendment.
The bottom line is that the pro-gun people are delusional when they claim that someone carrying a gun could stop a shooting, this is 100% proof of
that. I would think that a trained Marine sniper can handle a gun better than the internet Rambos that claim they would have stopped any of the
recent shootings if only they were there with their gun. And this incident also proves that not everyone should have the right to bear arms, and yes
this includes a lot of veterans who are trying to get their heads right after coming home.
