Gun trader Dennis Marx attacked the Cumming, Georgia county courthouse last week with an assault rifle, two handguns and a large supply of ammunition. He died in the attack. A former Transportation Security Administration employee, Marx believed a 2011 raid on his home “violated his constitutional rights” and was just going to get even! Marx was a self-described “Glock armorer” who took part in gun shows across the South.

Elliot Rodger was such a law-abiding citizen, he bought three guns in the year before his massacre at federally licensed firearms dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, California. He was such a law-abiding citizen, when sheriff’s deputies visited his Isla Vista apartment (at the request of his relatives) they concluded he was “quiet and timid . . . polite and courteous.” Like James Holmes (Aurora), Jared Loughner (Tucson), Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech) and Stephen Kazmierczak (Northern Illinois University) Rodger was a law-abiding citizen until he wasn’t.
