Sniper Chris Kyle was honored with a resolution by the Texas House this morning, nearly a month after he was shot at an Erath County gun range.

Waxahachie Republican Rep. Jim Pitts said Kyle “was clearly dedicated to the idea of putting others first,” and that while the world is not perfect, he was “trying to get us closer to that ideal.” Eddie Ray Routh has been charged with the murder of Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield.
