How DARE You, DHS? ***Update***

Even Wonkette is telling us to not make too much of this.

A gunman armed with a shotgun walked into the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in downtown Washington today and opened fire on a security guard before being shot and seriously wounded by two other guards, authorities said.

The security guard and the gunman were both transported to George Washington University Hospital with serious injuries, police said. A hospital spokesperson declined to release information on the condition of the two.

A third person sustained minor injuries in the shooting, according to police.

A law enforcement source identified the gunman as James W. von Brunn, who is known to authorities as a white supremacist.
To be fair, even though the guy is a prominent white supremacist, I haven't found anything that says he's Right Wing. So consider this a place marker until we learn otherwise. I promise as soon as I find out a political affiliation I'll post.

***Updated*** This doesn't prove he's right-wing. I mean, maybe he's a PUMA. In any event, he was on the "where's the birth certificate?" bandwagon.

*** Updated Again*** And there's this, signifying possible membership on a Ron Paul mailing list.
