  1. this man is extremely dangerous. He needs to be kept locked up. He created a new security business to circumvent gun laws and obtain high-grade weapons and ammunition available to law enforcement. He showed up at the Capitol on Jan 6 ready for war… in body armor, a helmet, firearms and plastic flex-cuffs. Evil Monster.
