    Do you agree with Ron Paul's tweet on the death of Chris Kyle?

    Ron Paul tweets about SEAL sniper's death | The Daily Caller

    Ron Paul ✔ @RonPaul

    Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense
    I do, absolutely. I'm tired of the cult of militarism in which every soldier is a hero and every critic a traitor. I'm thankful Paul has the guts to say what so many of us are feeling.

    I think it was largely tasteless. Whatever thoughts toward PTSD treatment one ought to have, during moments like that, Paul should have simply said it was tragic.

    It may not be politically correct but it's not incorrect either. Especially the second sentence. I haven't followed this story very closely -- they really were at the shooting range to try to help a guy's PTSD, huh?

    Paul's Facebook status says as much:

    As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle's family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP

    Is it true that Kyle was "treating" PTSD at the gun range?

    I'd have trouble coming up with a more bizarre idea

    Ron Paul has an open invitation to kiss my ass.

    His comment was an insult to every man and woman who has put their life on the line for the people of this nation.

    Has anyone asked him how he feels about cops? They tend to "live by the sword" from time to time too.

    Taking someone with critical combat PTSD to a shooting range is a horrible idea as it is. To think it's actually curative is double horrible. Fatally stupid mistake.

    Ron Paul continues to be an idiot.

    I just can't see Ron Paul actually using his Twitter account. I bet it was a staffer.
