We need to talk about the gun

Philadelphia Inquirer reporting in the case of the attempted murder of a city police officer by a man who explained that he had pledged allegiance to ISIS --

[Suspect Edward] Archer was armed with a semi-automatic 9mm pistol - a police-issued firearm that had been reported stolen from an officer's home in 2013, Ross said. He said it was unclear how Archer got the gun. 

That event is no less mysterious than the extended Hajj visit to Saudi Arabia in 2011 -- a logistically difficult enterprise not obviously feasible for someone of Archer's apparent difficult circumstances.
