    This guy wasn't shooting at the President. He was shooting at the building. Hell, he couldn't even be accused of, "trying", to kill the president. Someone, "trying", to kill the president wouldn't have used a medium caliber rifle, to try and shoot through bullet proof glass.

    BBC News - US man charged with Obama assassination attempt

    He's been charged and is being extradited to DC.

    Re: material missing from domestic media reports - happens regularly. That and excessive bias is why I get my US news from the European media outlets

    Edited to add: As for safety - the White House has ballistic glass behind the regular window panes. Very few weapons can shoot thru that in the time it would take for the Secret Service to respond.

    Well he can argue that to the judge now that he's been brought up on charges of attempted assassination.

    Good thing, too - I mean. I don't like Obama but I don't support such inane behavior.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Considering the shooter says God told him to do this and his history includes mental health problems, my guess is this had little to do with his political lean and a lot to do with being off his meds. He had been missing since 10/31 - and likely without his meds during that period.
