  •  The sad fact of the matter (4+ / 0-)

    Both sides of the gun control/safety/rights argument are going to politicize this death, and that saddens me.
    Gun control advocates - "my side" - are already making snide remarks about the murder.
    Gun-rights extremists are already fanning the flames of conspiracy, suggesting that Kyle is the latest victim of those who would seize their firearms.
    It's fucking ridiculous.
    A decorated combat veteran was murdered while trying to help another combat veteran, if that report is true, and now another wife is widowed and two more children have no father.

    RIP, Mr. Kyle.

      are screaming mental illness.   I have always thought of PTS as more an emotional illness.  They want to push all behaviors off on veterans,   There are all kind of mental illness and pts is just one.   They had best be careful of saying ptsd and mental illnes and linking vet to it because tvets keep redeploying  which is unacceptable due to the pts factor but the truth is ..if they are worsening a condition ...then the vet deserves a compensation according to title 38.
