Shooting at the Holocaust Museum

leave a comment »

A 88-year-old gunman— by reports a white supremacist and birtheropened fire earlier today at the Holocaust Museum. (Early reports that no one was killed have become inaccurate; a security guard has now died. TPM has running updates.) The suspect was arrested twenty-eight years ago for attempting to perform a citizen’s arrest of the Federal Reserve Board. His writings have been widely circulating on the Internet.

In light of today’s shooting and the George Tiller assassination, both Steve Benen and Matt Yglesias remember the Homeland Security report from earlier this year that caused so much manufactured controversy, which had warned against the threat of precisely this sort of violence from political extremists.
