George P. Bush was scheduled to shoot with (late) sniper Chris Kyle today

FORT WORTH -- George P. Bush had planned to spend today at a gun range with ace sniper Chris Kyle, talking about veterans issues and getting in some target practice.

"He served our nation proudly, and when he returned home, he continued to serve," wrote Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush and grandson of former President George H.W. Bush. "I was immediately troubled by the irony of this tragedy -- that one of our greatest and most decorated Navy Seals of our time, who fought so bravely for our country in multiple combat zones, was killed by one of our own, here at home."

After Saturday's shooting, Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster -- whom Kyle and Littlefield had taken to the gun range, trying to help the veteran deal with problems he was having related to post-traumatic stress disorder -- was taken into custody and remains in the Erath County Jail facing two charges of capital murder.

Bush, who deployed to Afghanistan as an intelligence officer in the Navy Reserve and plans to run for statewide office next year, said few Americans talk about post-traumatic stress disorder even though some estimates show as many as one in five veterans serving in Iraq and Afghanistan come home with the disorder.

1. Just imagine...


Just imagine how many republicans would be calling for some sort of gun control today if George P. had also been there the other day when Kyle and Littlefield were murdered.
