Gunman had rifle, was shot at the scene. He shot two at the museum and a 3rd person was cut by flying glass. National Mall and museum now secured.

Shooter has yet to be publicly identified. The longer that goes on the odds go up exponentially it’s an Islamist.

I’ll update this post as the event develops.

11:30am PT: Well, we got the name fast, so no, Muhammad’s not in it. The shooter appears to be an 89-year-old nut named James W. von Brunn. From his bio:

“In 1981 Von Brunn attempted to place the treasonous Federal Reserve Board of Governors under legal, non-violent, citizens arrest. He was tried in a Washington, D.C. Superior Court; convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal. He served 6.5 years in federal prison…”

    I’ve been to that museum 3 times.
    This is very disturbing.

    Times of London is reporting it’s a White Supremacist. Here come the gun control and “crazy right winger” debates.

  3. Ripper says:

    Security guard has died.R.I.P.

    The nut hated Bush and “neocons”. Sounds as if he could get a gig on MSNBC.

  4. Shawmut says:

    Remember, the thinking of this man is no different from the thinking and exhortations of those who are pursuing anti-semitism.
    Today’s Hezbollah, Hamas and numerous other jihadi-oriented extremists are the descendents of Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler…and those who shared in their diabolics; Hassan al Banna of the Muslim Brotherhood, grandfather of the Eurabian celebrity spokesman, Tariq Ramadan; and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who raised Muslim troops in Europe for Hitler and was the uncle of Yasser Arafat.
    Don’t let this murder’s age and recent history obscure the relationships.
    If he, over the years, can maintain this hatred, he differs in no way from the murderer, fed by the jihadist catechism of hate, that took the life of Private William Long.

    Was his bio written by Rev. Wright? hehehe

  6. MScott says:

    Lost in all the hoopla over his extremist views will be the fact that he was a felon (in D.C. where there never was heard a gun-type of word) so therefore why was he able to have a firearm of any kind in his possesion if all the “common sense” gun laws were in force? And because of this we will need “more” laws?? Too bad the guards lost one of their own and didn’t see fit to finish him off right then and there. Oh – again . . . never mind, this was D.C., the bastion of safety.

    BSTNDANCE – it has already begun; I’ve seen comments on a couple of websites already blaming conservative talk radio (usually Rush Limbaugh; they do know there are more conservative talk radio hosts, right?) and conservatives in general.

    MSCOTT – you are absolutely right? Criminals don’t get their guns the LEGAL way EVER.

    Another thing to note:

    Compare the coverage of Tiller’s murder, the murder of Private Long and now the murder of this security guard.

    ALL of these murders are AWFUL and WRONG.

    But the only two that have been covered in depth are Tiller’s and the Security Guard.

    Where is the in depth report on the murderer of Private Long – an American convert to Islam who went to Yemen to train in “jihadi” and who plead in court that the murder was justified because of American’s presence and actions in the Middle East?!?!?

    Another piece of evidence that our country is going to the dogs.

  8. Reverend, Persian tyrant, or “white supremacist … if someone is always blaming or hatin’ on “the Jews”, you should stay far away that person.

    Me? I’m a gentile Christian.
