LOCKSmiths, locksmiths and locksmith shops all across the country are reeling from the tragic events of the past few days.
Lockingsmiths are now facing criminal charges for threatening women and posting a threat on social media.
In the wake of the attacks, many locksmith companies have closed their doors and employees are taking time off to take care of their families.
Lockersmiths in Clarksburg, Tennessee, were also forced to shut down their businesses due to the threat.
Clarksville police say James A. Robinson, 28, of Clarksville, Tennessee posted a threat of “guns on your front lawn” on Twitter, threatening the lives of the employees.
Police said Robinson told the Clarksville City Council that the threat was not meant to be serious.
“The person was in this for a long time,” police Sgt. Matt Jones told the local CBS affiliate.
“It was the intent, and it was just meant to cause a lot of chaos, a lot, a little bit of mayhem.”
Clarksburg police said Robinson was arrested and charged with menacing, malicious destruction of property, and harassment.
Robinson is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Wednesday.
