Gun Tweet of the Day: Half Cocked Edition

The famously anti-war former Congressman from Tejas took to the Twitters to, apparently, imply that a decorated serviceman who served four tours of duty for his country — picking off insurgents, thereby saving the lives of his fellow servicemen and -women — deserved to be shot in cold blood. Which apparently means everyone who’s ever gone through basic and fought in a war in one of the US armed forces deserves a similar fate. No nation can survive without people like Kyle who, no matter how distasteful the work, are willing to put their lives on the line to defend the Constitution, their fellow citizens and the freedoms they enjoy. That Paul holds them all in such low regard is disgusting and sad. Maybe it’s time for someone to take the keyboard and smartphone away from the angry old man before he really embarrasses himself.
