Taya Kyle, the widow of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, asked President Barack Obama his first question on live national television Thursday night during the President's "Gun's in America" town hall on CNN.

Chris Kyle's wife told President Obama that gun control won't make us safer - as she penned earlier Thursday in an op-ed.

"I want the hope that I have the right to protect myself," Kyle said in response to the rise in gun sales under Obama.

Mrs. Kyle further cast doubt on Obama's notion that background checks would prevent mass murders.

"I know background checks wouldn't stop me from getting a gun, but I also know that it wouldn't stop any of the people in this room from killing...it's a false sense of hope," she said.

"Why not celebrate that we're good people and that 99.9% of us are not going to kill anyone?" Kyle concluded.

Fox 5 reporter and gun rights activist, Emily Miller, tweeted, "Chris Kyle's widow is amazing to stand up to Pres. Obama on live national TV and make powerful argument. She's so impressive."

Dateline: January 7, 2016 {Executive Office Cannon Fire} [AP]

~~FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama tore into the National Rifle Association on Thursday as he sought support for his actions on gun control, accusing the powerful lobby group of peddling an "imaginary fiction" that he said has distorted the national debate about gun violence.

In a prime-time, televised town hall meeting, Obama dismissed what he called a "conspiracy" alleging that the federal government — and Obama in particular — wants to seize all firearms as a precursor to imposing martial law. He blamed that notion on the NRA and like-minded groups that convince its members that "somebody's going to come grab your guns."

"Yes, that is a conspiracy," Obama said. "I'm only going to be here for another year. When would I have started on this enterprise?"

"Try not to get too carried away there, dude. "

Posts like yours below is why I wrote this.

Like I said, when one makes a claim the burden is on them to support it.

btw I spend quite a bit of time digging in the Federal Register, and read and interpret laws myself. This is not exactly uncharted territory for me.

Ok VA, you keep auditing records and I'll keep up with laws. But, I'll not argue law without getting paid for it.

Like I said before..... believe what you want.

" Fla. statute 790.065"

I looked, and unless I'm missing it it requires reporting of commitments to mental institutions while excluding cases for observation or where the examining physician makes the determination that the person doesn't need to be there, not all mental health records. If you know where it says that doctors must report mental health records to the federal government that would help. It does authorize the state to report any information gathered through this statute to the feds, but that's not remotely the same as what you said.

"You say mental health is your profession"

No I didn't. My first career was in medicinal chemistry, for which I have a doctorate, and now I work in health fraud and auditing, which to a great extent involves records management. It is rare that it goes into the area of mental health. When I said it was "my professional area" all I had to go on was your "doctors report mental illness", which was not specific to mental health.

"That's twice."

We will see, but I didn't actually even say you were wrong. I asked you to explain or expand on your statement.

You said that doctors report mental illness to the federal government. If what you really meant was "Mental institutions report involuntary commitments to the government", that's fine, but your initial statement was really, really a crap way of saying that.

@VA,

Currently there are 43 stares that require or authorize the reporting of mental health records to NICS. You might want to check out your own state of Fla. statute 790.065 You say mental health is your profession....... reading and interpreting law is mine. That's twice. Dude???????? I haven't been called that since high school. Sounds like you are probably a high school counselor.

"Oh Lordy.. time to head south.. see you all in a week or so.. and well the idiots.. I am now blocking them for the new year.. ! WOW"

See you in a week or so Ron.

I'm not sure if he called me an idiot. He placed himself on my "Special Friends" list well before he posted that, but after I indicated that the credibility of his posts were questionable when he invoked Godwin's Law earlier in this thread.

Alright. When I am wrong, I'll say I'm wrong. A neuropsychologist is capable of making diagnoses. I was completely wrong on that.

This doesn't change the fact that you said "doctors are reporting....". Generally, when people say "doctors" (especially when talking about health) they are referring to MDs. I'm a "doctor" too, as much as your brother is.

Back to my question. You said:

"Doctors are already reporting mental illness to the fed gov."

I asked you to expand or explain, but you did not. Are you saying that for every patient your brother sees he reports his findings to the Feds?
