The nutjobs are getting bolder.

A shooting just occurred at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C.! That's one of the most heavily screened places in town (aside from the obvious buildings). You can't get in without passing a metal detector and other security checks. A security guard was badly hurt. God knows what the shooter was hoping to accomplish. The people in the museum were scared, I'm sure.

ETA- shooter also shot and has been identified. An 88 year old man with ties to white supremacist groups. Color me not surprised. 88 years old? Jeez.


ETA again: The security guard has died. :(
