    The reports state it was a charity event on behalf of his business, but it seems no one was there as the bodies were found at 5 by a hunting guide who had arrived.

    You're assuming we even want to, which we don't. That aside you will have a lot more resistance to anything like that here, both politically and otherwise.

    So, what do you think we should do with people who believe there's an invisible man who lives in the clouds who can hear their thoughts?

    They were there. But I'm sure the restrictive gun laws of the state kept them unarmed and so unable to defend themselves. It's a tragedy that they just didn't have enough guns to protect themselves.
    Maybe we should look into legalizing RPGs so this sort of thing never happens again.

    We couldn't, and we don't want to. Better just get used to guns existing in the hands of civilians because you are never going to an America without them there.

    Yes, he is, but he has friends, other scumbags celebrating the death of a hero that was helping people, because his political views were different than theirs.

    What's with the progressive liberals always wishing death on their political opposites? So much for working together to make the world a better place eh?

    Even in this forum you have posters that are all but stroking themselves over high profile gun deaths. They feel it's something that aids their political causes so they're happy about them.

    The guy was shot and killed by someone who suffered from mental illness and used a handgun. He was killed while trying to help this person by rendering emotional support to a ex-fellow solider. But hey I guess that every murder that involves a firearm no matter the circumstances furthers the left wing agenda on "Assault Weapons" and magazines greater than 10 rounds even though none of these items were involved in this situation.

    Yeah, it's mandatory. But some people really do need it. If this guy could not figure out that his buddy was unstable then his death was his own fault.

    My point is that soldiers are already opting against any additional counseling for fear of being mentally flagged, which is really bad.

    He killed 255 people then bragged about it in a book. He took 255 lives most of them unsuspecting victims thousand yards away. To some he is a hero because he killed 255 evil people. To 255 families he was a monster for taking their son/dad/mother/grandpa or whatever away then made money out of it as well. He didn't show remorse and treated it as some job.

    Now who is the evil one? How does one measure evil? Is there such a thing as a universal 'index' according to which deeds of evil can be judged? If we, for example, take the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the final arbiter of what is evil and what is not, how could we then judge Zimbabwe as being more evil than, for example, China and Saudi Arabia – two countries enjoying marvelous ties with the West despite their abysmal human rights records. Is this blatant hypocrisy, or just the obligatory Real Politic of individual nations surviving in a cynical world where might (financial, military, etc) is right?

    The sniper is a judicious and as precise a killer that there is in this world. Despite that, his violence was still reflected back upon himself. It finds you in the end and can ruin you in all sorts of ways...

    I wonder how many times he called his friend a pussy because he was having anxiety attacks at the gun range. Kyle basically put his own head between the jaws of a gator and spit in its mouth.

    Its as if gun nuts are trying to destroy their own gun ownership. Just give them some rope says the politician. They will implode, but what is amazing is how fast its happening.

    Crazy people must be taught to off themselves rather than innocent people.

    The stigma placed on mental health issues in this country is truly unfortunate; and even more so for military personnel where the stigma is worse and the need greater. The military does a fairly god job at inadvertently training it's members to avoid health care (mental and physical).

    Britain had no where near the amount of guns we have both leagally owned and the bigger point the illegally owned ones.

    There are probably millions of illegal guns on the streets. Even when we have guns for cash programs they rarely even make a dent in that number. What's your plan for getting those off the street?

    There are nearly that many a year with illegal guns right now. Imagine that number after the free for all the criminals will have knowing there is no chance of retaliation from armed citizens.

    He was a solider fighting in a War that or elected politicians decided needed to be conducted. He was doing his job. A job that his country sent him to do. Did you even read his book? He didn't brag about killing people. However he didn't show remorse over killing people that where out to kill US Soldiers. He longest sniper shot over 2100 yards against a guy who was going to fire a RPG at a US Military convoy. He gave us a insight into his world and showed us what we ask or military to do when we send them overseas to fight for this country.
