A sort-of-related point: Mr. Dorner is sort of a reverse poster boy for the notion, embedded in some of the current gun control proposals, that LEOs and former LEOs should be exempt from restrictions on "assault weapons" and high-capacity magazines.

This ought to be a bit of an embarrassment to those making such proposals: it certainly undercuts their claim that only "trained professionals" should be trusted with such things. Folks in law enforcement won't be happy if the proponents of such legislation start arguing that they, too, should be prohibited from owning them.
