Notre Dame Suicide: Far-Right Activist Dominique Venner Shoots Himself
A man who shot himself dead inside Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris is reported to be a far-right author who campaigned against gay marriage.
The famous cathedral, which draws 14m visitors every year, was evacuated following the incident, at 4pm local time on Tuesday.
The 78-year-old man shot himself in the mouth and died 20 minutes later, French reports said.
He is reported to be Dominique Venner, an extreme right-wing author.
A letter was found next to his body, Europe 1 reported, although the contents are not yet known.
On his blog, Venner wrote about a huge protest against gay marriage planned for May 26, and predicted "spectacular gestures" to shake the "drowsy" nation's consciousness.
Good riddance. So many more to go. Maybe he'll set a nice example for his US counterparts?
Right-wing historian shoots himself in Notre Dame cathedral ‘in protest at gay marriage’
He was known to be a virulent opponent of gay marriage
The 78-year-old also fought in a militant paramilitary group
Mr Venner, an ultra-right wing Catholic, was known to be extremely angry when a law allowing gay marriage across France was finally given the seal of approval earlier this month.
He is said to have walked calmly past the crowds milling around the 850-year-old Cathedral, one of the most popular tourist sites in the world, before taking out a Herstal automatic pistol.
He put the gun in his mouth and fired before collapsing on to the altar, according to French media reports.
Last week another male pensioner walked into the foyer of a nursery in Paris and blasted himself to death with a sawn-off shotgun in front of children.
Around a dozen pupils - some as young as five -and one teacher at the private school close to the Eiffel Tower witnessed the horrific events.
'I thought there were terrorists who had guns and were coming into the school. Then I saw the man on the ground with a lot of blood,' said one five-year-old witness.
No, I haven't taken very much in income yet, just peeled off a little bit for more buying the next time the sky falls. The superbargains of The Bush Meltdown won't be repeated, but some good buys should appear eventually.
By generating the worst depression since the 1930s and thus absolutely tanking the stock market, the spectacularly incompetent Dubyuh created the greatest stock buying opportunity in many decades. Now, with The Obama Recovery under way, those purchases are paying off big-time.
She seduces bodyguard, bodyguard gets canned, she goes on to be governor.
In early December 1998, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol bodyguard for Lt. Gov. Fallin resigned after admitting to unprofessional conduct. The Fallins had filed for divorce the previous week, amid allegations by her estranged husband that she had an affair with a bodyguard.
Public Safety Commissioner Bob Ricks issued a statement saying that rumors had surfaced in early September about alleged unprofessional conduct between a member of the executive security detail and the lieutenant governor. According to Ricks, the trooper first denied the allegations, but, when questioned again in October, admitted to the improprieties. He was allowed to resign.
Wonder if he advised her to stop being a crackpot?
On July 14, 2011, Governor Fallin responded to a heat wave sweeping her state by asking citizens to seek divine intervention. "The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release.
Your ignorance is showing. I drive through Oklahoma at least four times a year. I-44 from the Missouri state line to Oklahoma City is turnpike, $8 total toll, one way, 174.5 miles.
When taxes and spending end you'll have no roads, no schools, no emergency help, no police protection, no military protection, etc. etc. etc. Genius you're not.
Especially Oklahoma, where they charge you to drive on interstate highways that're supposed to be free. With that and oil and gas royalties, the state should have plenty of money.

True. But, unfortunately, that's not saying much. The last repub to really accomplish anything for the American people was Ike, and today's repubs call him a communist.
