So how long will it be before someone claims we need gun free zones at shooting ranges?
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — An Iraq War veteran charged with murdering former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and a friend turned a gun on the pair while they were at a Texas shooting range, authorities said Sunday.
Eddie Ray Routh, of Lancaster, was arraigned early Sunday in the deaths of Kyle, who wrote the best-selling book “American Sniper,” and Chad Littlefield, 35. They were killed at a shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth. [Stars and Stripes]
Once again we have another situation where a person with a history of mental problems is given a firearm. I understand that Kyle was trying to help this guy but I fail to see how giving Routh a firearm is a good idea? Maybe going fishing a few times to get to know Routh better would have been more appropriate?
