Just_a_Bear: what was that about the need for better treatment for mental illnesses?


Especially for returning troops. The suicide rate anong Iraq and Afghanistan vets is appalling.

I have to admit I got a throaty, cough-like chuckle out of this story.

Too bad he wasn't a sexually deviant minority or something.

Then Fark would have his back.

Hired killer gets killed. Sorry for his family, but it sure looks like he bragged about it. Live by the sword, die by the sword. 

Don't like it? Don't sign up as a government sponsored killer.
 
2013-02-03 12:17:26 AM  
Was this the same sniper who talked about how god guided all his shots and it was god's will they died

If so it is still a shame when someone gets murdered, but I don't have the spare tears for self-righteous angels of death.

how about the mother who put a bullet in the back of her adult son's head and it was filmed on the security cams at a firing range?

MrHappyRotter: Frank N Stein: deadliest sniper in U.S. history

He never killed anyone. His gun did.

His gun never killed anyone either, you dirty lib.  It's the bullets that are generally fatal.


Karne: Frank N Stein: deadliest sniper in U.S. history

He never killed anyone. His gun did.

I doubt it.  I suspect the bullets had more to do with it.


I was told that it's the guns that kill people.

How are his actions Heroic? How has any war after W II been worth the lives it destroyed? Our soldiers aren't defending anything but a  mercenary's paycheck paid by the blood of the The People on behalf of corporate interests.

"Investigators said Routh, a former Marine who is said to suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, is believed to have turned his weapon on Kyle and the second victim, killing them both at point-blank range"

Point-Blank Range would be a good name for a gun range.

Sooo, by that logic, there's no tragedy in the deaths of any American soldiers who fired on anyone in Iraq.

Disagree with our nation's military goals, fine. But you're just being a dick about the death of someone who you know nothing about beyond a few highlights of their military career, with nothing further (let alone anything useful or insightful) to offer.

Wow, that's stupid. Even for you.

You do realize that most "insurgents" were actually either A) Foreign Soldiers - namely from Iran, or B) Foreign Fighters who had killboners for Americans, right?

Thank god shooting spree killers never target gun ranges because they're so well armed.

Also, thankfully, one of the many armed heroes was able to stop this guy before he could commit terror. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.... except when they don't.
 
2013-02-03 12:20:30 AM  
All that PTSD and suicidal behaviour coming home from a couple meaningless wars is going to really start to pile on.

I wonder if they'll gin up a war with Iran just to keep the army personnel from dragging home their murderous rage.

drayno76: ...and the Feds want to take away OUR guns?  Fark that, we need to take away the Governments guns, they obviously have no clue how to operate them safely.


What article did you read? In this one, a civilian at a civilian range murdered two men with his personal weapon.  Several involved have a federal-service background, but that's it.

The government agents managed to apprehend the unstable shooter without anyone else getting shot.  I'm not one for gun confiscations or bans, but the civilian gun owner in this story looks freaking BAD, and none of the other gunslingers there could do anything to stop him.

Amusing post, but honestly, it has become a bad cliche to label people "heroes" and then have zero apparent ability to back it up said claim with reason.

I'm shocked.

If a man starts shooting people at a gun range, you would figure he would be put down by everyone else at the range as an act of self defense.

I have no idea how he made it away from that range, unless it was a backwoods range where you only find a handful of people shooting.

At a range with 10+ people, that guy would've been toast from the first shot.
 
2013-02-03 12:22:33 AM  
Even if it was a shiatty, pointless war....aaand he may have been a bit jesus freak crazy.....he still was willing to put his own ass on the line for something the civilian leadership of this country asked him to do.

You can have whatever opinion about him that you want.

People like this are national treasures.

The military should confiscate any weapon a soldier with PTSD has until a therapist says they are better.

FTA: "Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL "

Ask any SEAL, once a SEAL always a SEAL....

FTA: "Investigators said Routh, a former Marine who is said to suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome "

Ask any Marine, once a Marine always a Marine.

The US government gives thousands of young men high power weapons, trains them to kill without prejudiced, runs them into the ground,
releases them into a killing field for far too long, and then send them home with the knowledge that they fought for some CEO's bottom line
and not a second of therapy.

Yes we need to take the farkin guns away from the government immediately.
