Given the circumstances I would bet Chris had way more insight into the politics of gun ownership than all of the members of this forum combined.

I can't find anything in the constitution that says free speech is covered when using a computer, land line or cell phone. Care to point it out to me?

Why because he shot little brown people from 1/4 mile away half way across the globe?

What he did has very little resemblance to the average American gun owner and hense his 'insight' probably holds less water when it comes to the politics of gun ownership---than the average American's.

I can hit little brown people @ 1/4 mile--Chris @ over a mile.

He was owner of Craft International--providing training to military, law enforcement,and private security agencies.

Perhaps you need to do a little research before "shoot off" your mouth--pun intended

The so-called politics of gun ownership had nothing to do with his specialty, which dealt with killing at long range.

Too bad he didn't have more insight into mental illness....... Taking a person suffering from war induced PTSD to a gun range wouldn't be a whole lot different than taking a person trying to graduate from AA to the local pub!

The last thing he learned came from the shooter, and it was all about killing at close range.

I know exactly what he was involved in. You have done nothing but prove my point. The average American gun owner does not provide training to the military, law enforcement and private security agencies. The average American gun owner also doesn't take potshots from 4,000 feet and put a bullet in the earhole of a suspected terrorist either. Let's just say he saw things from a different perspective. His persepctive and opinion on the politics of gun laws held no more weight than the average white tail hunter's because gun laws are directed at the white tail hunters of the world, not the Chris Kyles.

Our founders did believe wholeheartedly in the registration of weapons, in fact it was manditory. The NRA won't tell you that though.
So tell me again who is trying to rewrite the constitution?
One thing at a time...... Arms.....

Karma rears it's ugly head.....

Any bets the shooter ends up not guilty due to insanity?
