    This past year was the deadliest year for domestic extremism-related shootings in 20 years, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League.

    The report accounted for 52 people who were killed by domestic extremists, which is more than the total from 2013 and 2014 combined. It was the most deaths from domestic extremism since 1995, when Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168.

    The greatest percentage of domestic extremist killings came at the hands of white supremacists, accounting for 38% of those deaths. Nearly half of those killings oc cured in the June 17 mass shooting at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
