As solid as McVeigh's?

Anyway, the question wasn't "has any crazed loner on some militia-fringe
group's mailing list ever killed anybody" but "has any citizen militia
ever killed anybody?".

The question is of dubious relevance anyway; the militia movement is not
and never was monolithic. It may well include racists; it also includes
Blacks (like the spokesman for a prominent Ohio group) and Jews (like
most of the San Diego group, or so it was said some years ago).

Because those self-appointed hayseed death-squads haven't attacked
anybody yet; while pro-government extremists with badges harass, rob and
kill innocent people year in and year out, and get away with it.

McVeigh was trained (and decorated iirc) by the US Army, and the
Michigan Militia told him to get lost.

Anyone who questions the legitimacy of the current imperial regime in
Washington sooner or later gets labelled "White supremacist". Some
evidence on this point would be nice.

On another hand, the bombing was on the anniversary of the Waco fire,
and is generally assumed to be retaliation for it (I don't know whether
McVeigh has said anything to support that assumption). Do you know what
fraction of the Branch Davidians were White?
