A political official decided to weigh in on the ongoing manhunt for the Boston bombings suspect, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, adding his name to the list of people sharing outlandish and absurd notions on Twitter.

Arkansas State Rep. Nate Bell (R) tweeted that "liberals" in Boston likely spent Thursday night hiding and hoping they all had firearms in their hands.

Bell later apologized on Facebook and Twitter for his poor timing, but not for the content of his post.

"I would like to apologize to the people of Boston & Massachusetts for the poor timing of my tweet earlier this morning. As a staunch and unwavering supporter of the individual right to self defense, I expressed my point of view without thinking of its effect on those still in time of crisis. In hindsight, given the ongoing tragedy that is still unfolding, I regret the poor choice of timing. Please know that my thoughts and prayers were with the people of Boston overnight and will continue as they recover from this tragedy."
