A tweet by former Congressman Ron Paul about the shooting death of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and a friend is making waves on social media.

Chris Kyle and friend Chad Littlefield were fatally shot Saturday, allegedly by Iraq War veteran Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster. There were reports that Routh suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Paul's tweet from his @RonPaul account read, "Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense."

Nearly immediately, his tweet was retweeted and commented on, many of which were critical of the Texas lawmaker.
