Update: Apparently, Kyle and a friend of his were helping a vet with PTSD when the vet turned on Kyle and his friend and killed them.
Kyle and Littlefield had taken Routh to the range, said Travis Cox, the director of a nonprofit Kyle helped found. Littlefield was Kyle’s neighbor and “workout buddy,” Cox told The Associated Press on Sunday morning.
“What I know is Chris and a gentleman — great guy, I knew him well, Chad Littlefield — took a veteran out shooting who was struggling with PTSD to try to assist him, try to help him, try to, you know, give him a helping hand and he turned the gun on both of them, killing them,” Cox said.

The NRA has attempted to the patriotic card  when refusing any legislation denying access to guns to the mentally ill.  The NRA has claimed it would "unpatriotic" to deny guns to returning servicemen suffering from PTSD and other mental illnesses.
