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.
Weird that Obama talked gun violence & made no mention of Chris Kyle a hero who lost his life to gun related activities… Weird…—

Did Obama mention Chris Kyle tonight? If he did, I missed it.—

Perhaps it was for the best. Kyle’s stirring memorial service at Cowboys Stadium will have to suffice.
I, for one, am glad that Obama didn't mention the name if Chris Kyle. His memory and his name are too honorable to pass through his lips.—
