    Guns violence has claimed another life.  This time, it’s a decorated soldier who set records with a gun himself, allegedly shot and killed by Eddie Ray Routh, a 25-year-old veteran battling PTSD.

    FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports in our special series:

    Guns in America.

    Serving his country was a calling for former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.

    (Kyle) “I always wanted to be in the military.  Grew up very patriotic and I felt it was my duty to serve.”

    And he was good at it, credited with at least 150 kills – the most of any sniper in U.S. history.  But there’s a dark side to war.

    (Kyle) “Hollywood fantasizes about it and makes it look good.  War sucks.”

    And a dark side to life reared its head Saturday, as Kyle and another man were shot dead at a Texas gun range.

    (Sgt. Haschel) “Both Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield were pronounced dead at the scene.”

    …Texas Highway Patrol Sgt. Lonny Haschel.  Kyle, a decorated veteran, earned five Bronze and two Silver Stars over 10 years of service.
