WATCH: wife of 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle questions President Obama about gun control

Taya Kyle is still in support of gun ownership in the States

Famously played by Bradley Cooper in the movie American Sniper, Chris Kyle was shot and killed by a fellow marine, who was armed with Kyle's own weapons.

Last night, during CNN's town-hall, televised questions-and-answers session with Barack Obama, Kyle's widow Taya questioned the president about gun control and his negative slanted opinion on crime in the country. 

Chris Kyle is perhaps the most well-known sniper soldier in U.S. history, with over 160 official kills during her terms as a Navy SEAL.

Taya Kyle was the first member of the town-hall audience to be granted the microphone to question President Obama, who conceded that "Some criminals will get their hands on firearms even if there's a background check. [...] But, in the same way that we don't eliminate all traffic accidents but, over the course of 20 years, traffic accidents get lower - there's still tragedies. There's still drunk drivers. There's still people who don't wear their seatbelts, but over time, that violence was reduced, and so families are spared."
