You hear a lot of people talking about Kyle shouldn't of had a rifle and was breaking the law . He wasn't breaking the law by doing that it was allowed by law . The guy who pulled and pointed his handgun at Kyle and got shot in the arm was a felon and he is the one that wasn't allowed to have a gun . Are charges filed against him , I have not heard anything on that . Maybe there is more to that then what I know . I have heard about other felons who were stopped by police for a traffic stop who were arrested on the spot .
