    Reports: Ex-SEAL/author fatally shot on gun range

    GLEN ROSE, Texas (AP) Former Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle was fatally shot along with another man Saturday on a Texas gun range, a sheriff told local newspapers. Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said Kyle, 38, and a second man were found dead at Rough Creek Lodge's shooting range west of Glen Rose, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Stephenville Empire-Tribune. Glen Rose is about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

    --snip--

    Witnesses told sheriff's investigators that a gunman opened fire on the men around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims, according to the Star-Telegram. The newspapers said a 25-year-old man was later taken into custody in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas, and that charges were expected. Link.
    Just damn, Kyle deserved better than this. If guilty, I hope the US Authorities throw the book at the arrested man.

    I read this guys book and after finishing it I thought, damn this guy is really setting himself and or his family up for murder by Alquiada or any extremist Muslim. It is a sad day though, Kyle was one Hell of a soldier and we all owe him.

    Just heard on FOX the shooter was a guy with PTSD that Kyle had been trying to help, very sad.

    Are you sure the shooter was the PTSD? What I have read wasn't clear if the second man killed on the range was the soldier Kyle was trying to help.

    All due condolences to Kyle, and his family....

    With that said, is this the tactic now? Gun rights under fire so every single gun incident makes national news to drive the agenda to ban guns? Think about it people, the MSM is trying to shape opinion rather than reporting the news objectively.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I wonder if this was a hit? He had a lot of enemies, not only the Alqaeda.

    I just heard on network radio news that this guy was a friend of theirs suffering from PTSD. According to the report, they were trying to help him, by spending time with him I gathered. I don't see it on Google though.

    Well, if that is the case, taking him on the gun range wasn't such a good idea.

    Hindsight's 20/20.

    What it does flag, that's rather topical, is whether or not he should have been able to own a gun...

    very surprised when I first heard the news. I thought for sure it was Al Qaeda or the Taliban fulfilling their fatwah. RIP Chris Kyle.
