Deadliest sniper in U.S. military
history is ´shot and killed point-
blank by veteran suffering from
PTSD´ at Texas gun range

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson & Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/3/2013 8:06:33 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ.

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
