A California man is facing federal charges for allegedly threatening to shoot Boston Globe employees, whom he called “the enemy of the people,” after the Globe’s editorial board launched a national newspaper campaign in support of the free press and the First Amendment.

Robert Darrell Chain, 68, of Encino, Calif., was arrested by an FBI SWAT team Thursday without incident at his home. He is charged with a single count of making a threatening communication in interstate commerce.
