A real American hero is dead.

Kyle recorded more than 150 sniper kills, the most in U.S. military history. It is being reported that Kyle was shot a point blank range as Kyle was working with a veteran at the time of the shooting. The shooting occurred in Erath County, Texas, some 50 miles from Fort Worth. Chris Kyle is the author of the New York Times best selling book, ‘American Sniper’. Chad Littlefield was also killed. Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster was arraigned early Sunday on two counts of capital murder in the deaths of Kyle and Littlefield.

 

Chris Kyle, a former U.S. Navy SEAL credited with the largest number of confirmed kills, was one of two people fatally shot at a North Texas shooting range Saturday, Texas Highway Patrol confirmed to Fox News.

Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster was arraigned early Sunday on two counts of capital murder in the deaths of Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, at the shooting range about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Capt. Jason Upshaw with the Erath County Sheriff’s Office said Routh used a semi-automatic handgun, which authorities later found at his home. Upshaw said ballistics tests weren’t complete Sunday, but authorities believe the gun was used in the shootings. Upshaw declined to give any more details about the gun.

      Another case of a person with mental problems trying to play the important game by killing a guy that had done a superior job for the military.

      We have a lot of military guys who need some help when they return home. This is a problem that has existed in all wars. Some are not suitable for combat and are affected by what they experience.

      Heres a perfect catch-22, admit problem, get help or hide problem, retain right to buy/own firearms

      SM: I am going to agree with you on this one. I have a bit of an issue if this dude really was suffering from PPSD and was allowed to own and fire guns. I really don’t want to be at a gun range with some one with mental disease who is working thru his issues while I am firing my Glock.

      Obama’s web of lies and the disparate measures he is under then Someone from the family’s of the Navy Seals need to bring a law suite against Hillary Rod ham Clinton, Obama, and every one of the names of every official in congress, Because they would not do their job and bring a murder before them and Impeach him for crimes to honest citizens and killing of 4 Navy Seals in and ambassador Steven to be heard by the supreme court Ambassador Stevens Called for Help During Benghazi Attack. But Obama Did Nothing 4 hrs went by as Stevens was calling for President Obama to get them OUT. This was murder not causality of warr. Former SEAL Chris Kyle Allegedly Killed by Former Marine Routh, 25, He Was Trying to Help. what do you think, A Random killing? You think so? Well I think, Eddie Ray Routh was paid to do the killing, by the way Obama acted, he never even mention his name or acknowledged his bravery, I think that would be enough to bring the whole lot to stand trial. Oh not before Congress but before the Highest court in the land, supreme court. Then we will watch them squirm like their paints were on fire. Oh don’t worrie they will rush to be the First to tell the truth and tell us everything they can on one another. Well America, I have had my say, if you read this I am thankful this is the only way I know of to hold the office of our politicians I am going to send this out through ant means I can, Y want to see these guys punished for these crimes to let them know that no one is above the law, and everyone that breaks the law will be punished by the same laws that they have ratified,
