Chris Kyle: marine shoots dead legendary Navy Seal sniper on Texas gun range

by | 3rd, February 2013

CHRIS Kyle was shot dead on a shooting range south west of Fort Worth, Texas. He was shot by Eddie Routh, a former marine who, reportedly, was suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. Also shot dead was Kyle’s friend, Chad Littlefield, 35.

This is especially noteworthy because Kyle was a Navy Seal sniper with 150 kills by his name. His Iraqi enemy nicknamed him the ‘The Devil of Ramadi’ and placed an $80,000 bounty on his head. Kyle said of one kill – a bullet he fired at an insurgent with a rocket launcher – “God blew that bullet and hit him.” He said of the reward:

“That made me feel like I was actually doing my job and having an effect on the war.”

Kyle had recently accused Barack Obama of being “against the Second Amendment.

Former sniper Travis Cox explains why Kyle had taken Routh to a shooting range:

“A lot of veterans enjoy the outdoors and … if you share a common interest, it’s a platform to help. It wasn’t connected with the foundation, this was just the type of men they were.”

I fully expect within hours today, you’ll hear many from the Left cheer and consider this some perverted form of poetic justice – probably under the banner of more proof of why gun control is the answer. And you won’t hear a word from them that as I understand it, Mr. Kyle was a decent enough soul that he was personally working to help the perpetrator.

Going overseas & murdering 150 or more people who posed no threat to him or this country & braging about it while making money? Sounds like a psychopathic mass murderer with a huge ego to me.

How many lives did Chris Kyle save?
