Sad that someone needs to be killed for their truck.

I know 2 HC professionals who work daily with the supposed PTSD folks. They say it's a big scam being foisted on the public.

Somethings not right. During WWII folks were drafted, sent to unknown parts of the world for long (sometimes years) stretches with little means of communication, did their job, came home & assimilated into the position they had occupied in society. So what's the difference today. Is it the sympathy card?

Thanks for posting this up. I've read his book and he was very uncomfortable with being known a the snipe with the most kills. He said he was just lucky. To make this even worse is that he got out for his family and then in the 2nd book by Marcus Lutrell, two guys tried to rob him at gunpoint at a gas station. He pulled out his gun and shot both of them dead. God speed Mr. Kyle and may God watch over your family.

Spoken like someone who never had his friends blown apart while he was spared. My Dad and Father in law never spoke of the horrors they witnessed and rest assured, they carried those memories. My FIL's entire squad was killed, how do you suppose that weighed on him ? Pehaps it was the way they were raised back then, holding things in, but I know they and thousands of others would have liked the chance to work through those nightmares.

Pretty callous remark Marv.

2 uncles & a Dad - 2 in Battle of the Bulge, 1 doing the island thing in the South Pacific - came home, talked little of their adventure - our whole community was drafted during WWII - lost a very good friend in Korea - with a couple of more shot up pretty bad - being a Draft Dodger was not an option in our communities -

Don't ever post to me about not knowing :evil: . BTW are you a vet, I am :rolleyes:. & born where men were men & proud of it & we served our country so people like you could make sarcastic remarks :confused:.

Until you have been there, seen it first hand, you don't know Marv. If you have been there and seen those horrors, had friends die in your arms, you wouldn't post that PTSD isn't a real condition and that the horrors of war affect each person in a different way.

Sarcastic my Ass Regards

"Kyle has a forthcoming book, American Gun—A History of the US in Ten Firearms."

I can't read the link with the info posted on this thread so maybe this was in that info. Anyhow just so people know.
Sounds interesting to me.

He who takes captives shall live as a captive
He who lives by the sword shall die by the sword...

Do you believe in your Bible?

I currently use the New American Standard Bible, because it is easier to read than the old King James version...I have been attending church again since the middle of last summer..it has made a remarkable difference in my life..it has made me reexamine those that I call friends and those that I associate with, it has strengthened my relationship with Dana...I like the results...So yes I believe in my Bible

Good honest answer!

So, if you believe in your Bible and the teachings of Jesus, then you understand where Dr Paul is coming from.

How do you think your God will Judge Chris Kyle? As someone who followed his teachings or as something else?

To how Chris Kyle will be judged:

However the Author of Love, Mercy, and Justice wills. And if He is God's his judgement has already been paid at the cross. Even though I have not killed 160 people, I might well have when being judged on the scale with perfection. It is not how close to perfect you were it is how perfect Christ is.

To this awful shooting:
Aurora and newtown- crazy mentally disturbed white dudes kill people with guns. Media says "guns are awful" NRA folks say " if guns are so dangerous why aren't people shot at gun shows and ranges"
Next month, guess what is in the news, some folks were shot at a gun show,...and then a disturbed white guy shoots two people at a gun range
Maybe it's a coincidence,

You can't be that dense... he could have shot them in the car, in their home whatever... It wasn't some random guy at a gun range. They took him there. They trusted him. using this to try to prop up an old kook like Ron Paul is sick.

I honestly have no idea what Dr Ron was thinking when he made that tweet, it came across as cruel and heartless and I follow his tweets...I am not enough of a Bible scholar to condemn nor condone where Dr Ron is/was coming from


as for how God will judge Chris Kyle ? I hope that he judges him like he does my dad..a military man that was asked to do a job and executed that job to the best of his ability...I do not know anything about Mr Kyle's personal life and I am in no position to judge HIM or anyone else for that matter

That is one of the best things to come out of my attending church..I try now not to judge people, but if their actions or behavior are disgusting, distasteful,or potentially harmful to me or my family and loved ones, I walk away from them...I still have many friends in low places and they are still my friends because they have been good to me and I dont pass judgement on them...I ask the same out of them...I am no choirboy, and do not aspire to be one

From the reports I read he was shot at the gun range by the PTSD sufferer. It wasn't a random guy, but it was another mentally unstable white dude. Correct me if I am wrong but those are the reports. And I am not sayin that to prop RP up. I just think all these shootings so close together is a bit weird.
