    Sniper With America’s Longest Kill Shot Record Arrested At Death Scene

    first published on May 7, 2019 by Will

    The sniper that holds America’s longest kill shot record was arrested near Ft Braggfor reckless handling of a firearm and discharging a firearm inside a building on Saturday.




    Confusing local reports indicate that an “unattended death” occurred at the house where Army sniper Nicholas Ranstad, 40, was later arrested. The investigation is ongoing, so the police were unable to release any further information.

    Based on the information available, it sounds like Ranstad, who is employed by United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) at Fort Bragg, was conducting a health and welfare inspection on a comrade who didn’t show up for duty.



    Once Ranstad arrived at the residence, he picked the lock on a window to let himself in. Upon discovering his dead comrade with a possibly self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Ranstad became overwhelmed with grief and fired four rounds from his personal weapon.
    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams

    longest confirmed kill. not to belittle that feat, the confederates were using a James 6 pounder to kill individual union skirmishers at Appomattox.

    Longest American kill. World record belongs to a Canuck sniper. By a country mile.

    “The explanation value of the evolutionary hypothesis of common origin is nil! Evolution not only conveys no knowledge, it seems to convey anti-knowledge. How could I work on evolution ten years and learn nothing from it? It does seem that the level of knowledge about evolution is remarkably shallow. We know it ought not be taught in high school, and that’s all we know about it.” (Dr. Colin Patterson, senior Paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History)
