I would not be surprised if your list remains small.  While the fear of
someone else trying to destroy the world may be significant, anyone trying
to do so must be suicidal above all else, and the suicidal often just
commit suicide (sometimes while taking out those they can with a modest
effort, such as mass shooting ending in suicide by cop) so as to be done
with their concerns in a reasonable time.
