Remembering Oak Creek One Year Later

I have an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times today on the anniversary of the Oak Creek attack.  Like any act of senseless violence, it should never have happened.  What’s frightening, however, is that our government has done nothing to prevent it from happening again.  Many continue to understate the threat posed by white supremacists and neo-Nazis while the profiling of religious minorities continues.  Also, guns proliferate because a bill calling for universal background checks failed in the US Senate earlier this year.  It’s a deadly cocktail and one that cannot be ignored.
