President omits Chris Kyle from list of gun deaths in SOTU address

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.
