In this issue

A decade after Elliot Rodger’s horrific massacre, his mother is on a quest to help threat assessment experts—and other parents—prevent the next tragedy. The story is written by Mark Follman, who has incisively reported on gun violence in America for more than 10 years. Also in this issue, we compiled Reconstruction-era documents to identify Black Americans given land as reparations only to have it returned to their enslavers. Among the discoveries is that, on Skidaway Island, in Georgia, the formerly enslaved briefly formed a self-governed paradise in the making, but today that land is a wealthy white enclave. We also report on technology and genealogy making the case for reparations specific—and undeniable. Journalist Madison Pauly, with Henry Carnell, reports that the counselors once discredited for “ex-gay” theories have rebranded and are coming after trans kids. Plus, a feature revealing how Donald Trump’s pugilistic spokesman takes campaigning to a whole new low.
