#2 Foxnews: Reports said the suspect first shot a security guard, and that another guard returned fire, wounding the alleged shooter.

There are conflicting reports about how many people were wounded. Another law enforcement official said three people were shot, but that there are no fatalities.

#3 This is a hell of a note:
The shooter is now identified (by Fox News) as one James W. von Brunn. He is said to be quite elderly.
There is a well-known white supremacist and antisemite by that name. He is currently 89 years old (!) and lives in Maryland. Google cache of his website (hat tip LGF)

#4 Yep, it's von Brunn, the octogenarian asshole.

#5 A guard was immediately hit, before two other security officers at the heavily guarded museum, less than a mile from the White House, hit von Brunn in the head with return fire. He was taken to George Washington Hospital in a critical condition. Officials said he may not survive.

Well, at least there's some good news.

#6 Watch MSM and the Obama administration try to classify this as "right wing extremism".
In the meantime, another mark against Janet Napolitano's Home Land Insecurity Department.

#7 MSNBC is reporting that the guard did not survive.

Von Brunn needs to get the death penalty.

#8 Too bad the evil old bastard is still alive. If I ever get in a shootout with a neo-nazi I'm going to empty the mag into his head, just to be sure. They're like fucking zombies you know.

#11 I work not far from there. At about 2:15, I passed a TV with CNN Breaking News Alert. I wandered over...Gaza? Islamabad? Nuke-happy Norks? Holy Carp! The Holocaust Museum!!! Wait, what?

Tomorrow I will go over with a flower and a pebble.

Rest well, Officer Johns.

#14 I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner. It was only a matter of time. The museum is a bullseye and media magnet for suicidal, hate mongering nut cases like this guy. Memorials to the Holocaust and to European butchery should be built in EUROPE! Just my opinion nothing more.

#18 I think everywhere needs reminding about the crimes of national socialism.

There just needs to be a few more built for the crimes of international socialism and it's greater number murdered.

Yes I agree.

There is a monument to victims of Communism in Wash DC near Union Station (about a mile east north east of the Holocaust Museum). Unfortunately a monument is all there is, no museum, no documentation center, no special wing for apologists for Communism and moral equivalency proponents.

Sure there is, lord garth - the West Wing (at least during this administration).

Not really skunk. Infact, he's just like you-a white racist bigot who hates Islam, Obama, foreigners and black people and repeatedly talks about "the browning of America."

Read the real version:

"D.C. police spokeswoman Traci Hughes says a whitee carrying photographs of Hitler, Bin Laden, Pat Robertson, Railing wife and Barbara Skolaut, walked into the museum with a rifle and shot a guard. Hughes says the shooter was also shot. The entire 'Rantburg' staff is now visting him at the hospital."

#26 Uh, snake hissing troof, you neglected to mention that he also hates Jews, possibly because you don't want to discredit your own pet cause.

#30 , Railing wife and

I'm not up on troll IP addresses, but you've been here before, my dear. I confess I have a little trouble keeping my fans straight -- were you the little Saudi multiple self-cousin fascinated by my armpit hair?

#31 No, TW, I think this one is the Liberation Media Studies major from Frostbite Falls Socialist Cow College. Since he knows that "rail" is a synonym for "rant" he has obviously at least enrolled in freshperson English there, and may have taken the more advanced course "Field Studies 406, Media Marketing Interface: Goebbels to Che."
It is a "he" because female students in that field normally don't bother to ape the ideology of their professors, they find it easier and less degrading to simply trade sexual favors for grades.

#32 Thank you, Atomic Conspiracy, I do have a little trouble keeping the details about my several fans straight -- I could easily be wrong about which one this one is. I trust your expertise in the characteristics of various categories of college student failures, and cannot fault your conclusion. My expertise in this matter, such as it is, lies in remembering that particularly clever play on my chosen nym. (Wouldn't it be funny if a hopeful Saudi paterfamilias sent his son to get an American education at Frostbite Falls etc to further the family fortune, only to get back Truth Yesss? as revealed in this thread?)

#33 FFSCC caters to international students, at least to those from various petrostans as opposed to, say, Israel, Paraguay, or the Cameroons. Petrostanians are ideal students for these institutions, being both gullible and well-heeled.

#34 Railing wife...

Saw you here live (long Island Derby 6/2/2009).
Not bad-6th place finish.

I have always said that with all your hair and stench you should be registered as a horse at the Long Island Board of Registrars and the New York City Department of Species Classification.

Perhaps it was the testostorone pills your dad (by the way everyone, her dad is a chemist) accidently dropped in the hay flakes you eat every morning.

See you at the New Paltz Derby next month. No, no. I won't be betting on you stupid.
