A former Navy Seal, expert sniper and best-selling author was reportedly gunned down at a Texas shooting range Saturday by a veteran who is recovering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. Ex-Navy Seal Chris Kyle, 39, and another man were shot point-blank around 3:30 p.m. at a charity event on behalf of Kyle´s security firm at the gun range at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Erath County. The suspect, 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, was arrested roughly five hours later in Lancaster, Texas after a police chase. He was driving Kyle´s truck at the time of the arrest, police said.

What a sad, horrific story. You know the filthy Democrats are going to exploit this tragedy.

There is a design here, my friends. RIP, Chris, and God be with you now, and your loved ones left behind.

But there is something smelly about this. Something more is going on, and we´re all right in the middle of it.

Take our Hero out..... by the very method for which he was known, and which is currently the topic of hot debate in this country. And by another veteran. (Recall the DHS publication on domestic terrorism....) And IN TEXAS.

Same day that the WH releases a ´photo´ of their Kenyan Flycatcher Hero. Are we expected to transfer loyalties now, and realize the error of our ways? /s

Steel yourselves. There is a plan at work here......, and it is being expedited.

For the record, Chris was a SEAL...a US Navy sailor, not a Marine as Semper Fi would suggest. He was a hero´s hero. What a shame. What a waste.

Very tragic. Chris Kyle was a true American hero. I´ve yet to tell my husband, a former SEAL as well, since he´s still in bed sleeping.

None of the articles I´ve read so far have named the second victim. Apparently Kyle was working with Routh, who was suffering from PTSD.

How very sad. There is no doubt in my mind that God welcomed him with open arms for his true and faithful service.

Thank you for your service. Rest in peace. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

My only thought is check the shooter´s voting card, and when he last had contacts with leftist organizations. PTSD might have been a factor, but I would not put it past this Administration to orchestrate tragedy.

1. the abandoned at Bengahzi.
2. the hundreds dead in Mexico.
3. Almost all of the tragic school shootings were done by young men who were under the care of ´Mental Health Professionals´ who themselves tend to be hard left leaning.

I may be paranoid, but when someone IS after you, being paranoid is a survival factor.

The government wants to take weapons away from vets that suffer from PTSD. But, they also want to declare ALL vets suffer from a form of PTSD in varying degrees. Watch this play out.

I watched with great honor the TV show ´stars earn stripes´ and loved the way our service members who worked one-on-one with the ´stars´ to train them on the use and tactics of the weapons they were to use in their exercise. To see the ´stars´ go from an arrogant person to on of great humility was priceless. I would recommend viewing the show for anyone to see what our heroes do everyday!

I hope his killer gets what he deserves and these acts by or for our government does make you pause with a suspicious eye. The removal of high ranking officers and military men who disagree with the administrations views does seem strange. If I were a former military man, I would definitely be watching my back.

Kyle´s kills were (I think) all muzzies. I wonder if the publicity given his book and all may have inspired some Muslim to seek out the mentally ill Routh and persuade him to kill Kyle?

None of us can choose how we die but we can choose how we live. Chris lived an exemplary life in service to his country. He died trying to help a troubled soul get through PTSD and paid the ultimate price. Rest in Peace.

It fits right in with the current memes, guns are evil and must be taken away and military veterans are more dangerous to the nation than Al Quaeda so big Sis needs to carefully monitor them. Obviously we can´t therefore let veterans have firearms, can we? Just go back to sleep now sheeple, your government will take care of you.

Joyce Carol Oates gets her wish.

I´m heart sick. And anyone who doesn´t take note of the number of SEALs killed in the last two years alone is burying their head in the sand. Something stinks.

The only plus is that this happened in Texas and I really hope Rick Perry is not the type to say it´s all confidential. We need to know what the motive was.

The solution seems easy enough: don´t allow anyone with PTSD to own, or even handle, a firearm. Treat all those crazies like the felons they are only one step away from becoming. Cold-blooded killers -- all of them.

Not only so, but it´s also easy to determine who has PTSD: obviously anyone who has ever served in the military. Add anyone who has ever applied for a concealed carry license.

We don´t need to put them all in jail. Just confiscate there cop-killer bullets and their child-murdering guns.

If they resist, perhaps they belong in a mental hospital. It´s a good thing we´ve got Obamacare...

I´m more suspicious of the media in all of this. Murders happen day in and day out all over the country and we generally never hear about them except possibly on our local news. Now we´re hearing about them all the time in the national media. I think they are pushing these stories to the forefront to help zippy in his anti-gun efforts. They are trying to scare the LIV´s into accepting gun confiscation.

RIP Chris.

Since the mass shootings at Aurora, CO, and Sandy Hook, CT, the USA has been experiencing a number of lone wolf shootings perpetrated by people with serious mental disorders who know that if they engage in criminally insane homicidal actions that the news media will instantly make them famous. Are these murders another instance of that?

With the loss of so many heroes, I can´t help but think there is something more smelly going on here, as #2 said. Maybe it´s just living in this age of fundamental transformation that has me thinking this way.

Everything is suspect. I didn´t read anything in this article that said Chris was working with Routh. I did read that Chris had started his own company dealing with security, so I don´t know why he would put a gun in the hand of someone he knew was suffering PTDS. None of this makes sense.
Prayers for the family.

This was more than "PTSD". That fits their narrative of trying to disarm as man law-abiding veterans as possible. PTSD doesn´t turn you into a homicidal maniac.

I have little doubt that when all is said and done you will find that Eddie Ray Routh had far more serious issues than PTSD, look to see if there was an unsuccessful effort to have him committed, also see if he was placed on some particularly strong psych meds.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
