Hey NRA-ILA, the shooting of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield is why rational and responsible people are overwhelmingly for mandatory criminal and mental health background checks for ALL gun purchases. Maybe if such checks were in place nationally the Marine Eddie Ray Routh would not have had a gun and Kyle and Littlefield would not have been shot and killed. As it is, Kyle and Littlefield should have aborted the trip to the gun range once they agreed “this dude is straight-up nuts”. The fact they they didn’t is evidence that we are way too cavalier about mixing guns and mentally unstable people. Even Kyle the American Sniper Navy SEAL was not vigilant enough regarding this, so clearly more needs to be done. But won’t be, right NRA-ILA?
