I expect that when he is released from the hospital, a judge will order that Mr Tomblesome will be issued an AR-15, a dozen 30 round clips and a case of ammunition.


Releasing this man into the public is exactly what R's want. It will scare everyone into buying a gun and even promote their idea of "law and order" by making us believe the only solution is martial law. I can see the banners over 3rd St right now: "Q Believes Fear and Terror breeds safety"


D's are the folks who favor martial law and totalitarianism. They have already outsourced the censorship and thought policing to Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Most Rs now favor heavily armed anarchy. We don't need F-15s and nuclear weapons to prevail against the D's.


Chill on the projecting. Go watch Ted Lasso.


Facebook and twitter are private entities. Try posting something critical of trump on truth social if you want to see censorship in action.

Why are you all making this a "D" and "R" issue?

Man, that's a tough issue. No quick and easy way to resolve it. I'm grateful we have people like Brad Berry who are wrestling with these kinds of issues and doing their very best to keep us safe as they work through it.


This is a very sad situation and astonishingly dangerous for so many. This individual's family is now in great danger, law enforcement is in great danger, and the person himself. It won't be long until he has another episode and another person will die. I truly hope it won't be an innocent person, and it would be a shame for him to be killed when he could be in a psychiatric hospital. Thank you Brad Berry for working on this issue and to law enforcement and mental health for collaborating. I fear for the people on the ground who will be first responders to the next altercation.
