    How horrible. Sorry to hear this. Admittedly I didn't know who he was before this evening, but he was obviously a true hero and one of a kind American.

    RIP brother.

    Is this the guy that got into it with Jesse Ventura?
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    ...Jesus Christ and the American G.I.
    One died for your sins; the other for your freedom.

    Yes. Ventura denied it.

    Very odd......a trained and decorated seal and snyper at that with four combat tours of duty and someone gets close enough to him to shoot and kill him at a gun range where he most likely was armed and he didn't see this coming? My very first thought when I read the article in the news was BS, My dishonest side is telling me that the pentagon decided this was the best way to deal with him for writing his book. No way they would bring him up on formal charges and this go through the court system. HMMMMMM....also an eye opener for other soldiers/heroes who want to share there experiences. Curious to see the explination and how much smoke is going to get blown up our butts by the press and the government over this.

    A true tragedy. BUT should re-enforce the idea that ALL at ranges should not be taken as AS ALL are safe in handling and shooting. I've walked away from a few public ranges due to the sense of uncertainty of the people on it. (my sense may have been unwarranted, but it was my sense)

    Take a moment and reflect on the past five, even six years, how the conversations and messages from this band of socialist rogues, through the media, has controlled the agenda. How the things that have happened (racially charged incidents, oil rig explosions, shootings, etc...) within a relatively close proximity is a staggering coincidence.

    It might be easier if you look at the tragedy and or crisis, then look up the "conversations" just before...

    This one really stinks.

    He was shot in the back by a vet he was trying to help!

    I haven't seen or heard any details of the shooting including what you described.......not yet anyways, two people were shot and killed and the shooter was able to exit only to be apprehended a short time later off the property. YES....absolutely something stinks here!!!!!! it makes no sence at all. Were there only three people at the range that day? No fellow shooters, No range masters or supervisors? No one to confront the shooter before he walked away. I think this very unlikely.

    RIP Kyle
    A senseless loss of a "True Hero"
    Folks ask why I carry two guns...Well if I did not I'd be off balance and walk in circles!
