Former Congressman Ron Paul set social media a twitter over controversial tweets about a murdered Navy Seal.

Former seal and best-selling author Chris Kyle and a friend were murdered Saturday at a Texas gun range.

Police say a 25-year-old former marine, possibly suffering from P-T-S-D, shot both men to death.

Paul tweeted "Kyle's death seems to confirm that 'he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.' Treating P-T-S-D at a firing range doesn't make sense."

The former SEAL won two silver stars and was an outspoken defender of Second Amendment rights.

The 38-year-old claimed a record 160-sniper killings during his 10-year military career.

He also helped form a foundation that assisted military veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder.
