Hours after slamming the death of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was shot to death at a gun range last weekend in Texas, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul issued a Facebook statement to clarify his earlier remarks.

Paul had earlier tweeted, “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.”

In a Facebook post meant to clarify the tweet, Paul wrote, “As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend’s violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event.”
