Background on the issue can be found here.
After the shootings, Erik Loomis tweeted this this.
I was heartbroken in the first 20 mass murders. Now I want Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick.

I'm the opposite of an Erik Loomis fan, but I endorse every word of this: about the ugly, vindictive witch hunt at himis.gd/WVoDzC— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 19, 2012
@ohtarzie He's repellent - the embodiment of a blindly partisan Dem - just don't think he should lose his academic position over this— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 19, 2012
@ohtarzie LGM is a filthy cesspool - it's the online successor of TNR circa 2002 - but I still oppose witch hunts to get academics fired— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 19, 2012
@ohtarzie Oh, obviously - LGM is a cesspool of unprincipled partisan hackdom - look what they said about Palin's crosshair "metaphor"— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 22, 2012
I agree with Greenwald here - LGM (Lawyers, Guns and Money) are hypocrites. But Loomis still shouldn't lose his job.
