Former SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was murdered at a gun range near Glen Rose, Texas on Saturday. Fellow vet Eddie Ray Routh has been arraigned in Kyle’s death and that of a second veteran murdered at the range, Chad Littlefield.
Routh apparently suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Kyle and Littlefield were trying to help Routh deal with his PTSD. The motive in the killings remains unclear. That did not stop former Rep. Ron Paul from popping off about it on Twitter.
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

By that reasoning, everyone who ever served in the US military deserves to be shot to death. That would include Paul himself, who served in the United States Air Force.
Paul is a medical doctor, but he is not a psychiatrist. He is a gynecologist. He is also a crazy old coot.
