Taya Kyle, the widowed wife of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle confronted Barack Obama Thursday at a CNN town hall event on guns.
Kyle told President Obama, “The thing is that the laws that we create don’t stop these horrific things from happening, right? And that’s a very tough pill to swallow. We want to think we can make a law and people will follow it but by the very nature of their crime they are not following it.” (RELATED: The ‘Untold Story’ Of Chris Kyle’s Killer)
“By the very nature of looking at the people who hurt our loved ones here, I don’t know any of them would have been stopped by the background check and yet, I crave that desire for hope, too,” Kyle claimed.” And so I think part of it we have to recognize that we cannot outlaw murder because the people who are murdering, right, are — they’re breaking the law but they also don’t have a moral code that we have. And so they could do the same amount of damage with a pipe bomb, the problem is they want to murder.”(RELATED: Chris Kyle’s Widow Uses Next-Gen Rifle To Win ‘American Sniper Shootout’ [VIDEO])
