Regarding the Feb. 4 obituary for Chris Kyle, “Navy SEAL, author was one of military’s leading snipers”:

If even a former Navy SEAL sniper can’t protect himself from a disturbed person with a gun, who can? So much for “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is to stop him from getting a gun in the first place.
