    Sad to hear

    You just want this guy to get help and get himself sorted but I guess that will just never completely happen.

    Poor guy. If he didn't live in a gun grabbing nanny state at least he wouldn't have had that assault weapon charge.

    They don't know how to fix brain damage at this point, which is the likely issue.

    I'm not sure anything would help (aside from locking him up and protecting everyone else from him).

    Guy was always messed up. Seemed like he had a few good patches over the years, but I guess those were the exception.

    They are getting very close but may be another 100 years for all I know. I think there would be a lot more potential talent competing in combat sports if they knew it could be repaired.

    I have always felt bad for Chris Leben he has a lot of demons I wonder if he has a underlying mental illness he isn't taking medication for.

    Anything that has increased functionality, standard magazine sizes, or scares a soccer mom with no knowledge of firearms.
