Plenty of folks upset President Obama didn't mention slain Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle tonight. His funeral was held in Texas today. #SOTU—

Some of the loudest applause for the president tonight during his state of the union address came during his call for a vote on an assault weapons ban. President Obama listed a number of high-profile gun deaths and name-checked Gabby Giffords, who was in the audience. One high-profile shooting was overlooked, though, but not by Twitter.
Perhaps it was for the best. Kyle’s stirring memorial service at Cowboys Stadium will have to suffice.
