Ron Paul tweet following the murder of decorated US Sniper Chris Kyle at a firing range:
"He who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense.
Let's examine. The second sentence is logical, and indeed, Kyle was unwise to put a loaded weapon into the hands of a disturbed individual, paying he ultimate price for a well intentioned mistake.
The first sentence however has a problem. Paul attempts to conflate what he sees as US over-involvement in other nations with the sad death of a decorated soldier at home. Attempting to politicize what was a personal and individual choice seems inappropriate. In other words, the death of Chris Kyle has something to do with how we deal with guns in the USA, but has little to do with our invasion of Iraq. Yes, the shooter was damaged by his participation in war. But the war was over, and his mental damage was well understood. he did not need a gun.
