Report: Suspects not
licensed to own guns

The Hill [Washington DC], by Mike Lillis

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/22/2013 9:49:28 AM

The two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings were not licensed to have the firearms they used in several shootouts with police on Friday, Reuters reported Sunday night.The news that the suspects were not authorized to own firearms will likely add fuel to calls for tougher gun laws – an issue that was put on the back-burner last week after the Senate blocked the central elements of a gun-control package backed by President Obama. Because Massachusetts state law bars handgun ownership for those younger than 21, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, age 26, was the only brother who could have

Yep. That will fix it. Make more laws that the criminals will ignore...that should do it!

Wait a minute! There is a law against them owning guns and yet they owned them anyway? How can this be? We need MORE laws against them owning guns so maybe next time they will think twice!
Yes, that was sarcasm.

I wonder what Comrade Feinstein has to say about this.
I also wonder about all the poor subjects of Massachusetts, hunkered down in their homes with their golf clubs and kitchen knives, hoping they can protect their families from crininals with guns.

But only among those who are just too stupid to see that none of these laws make any difference whatsoever to criminals...

Progressive logic on full display in the Shills´s article. "Let´s make it even more difficult for law abiding people because foreign born terrorists are ignoring our already tedious laws. It´s for the children."

The author will use the reverse logic on illegal immigration, illicit drugs and terrorism. For example. If we make marijuana legal, users won´t move onto harder drugs. And, drug sellers will find real jobs.

What ´tougher´ gun laws would have prevented these criminals from getting a gun? The same strict licensing law that failed to prevent them from getting a gun or a new even tough law? Gun laws only affect law abiding citizens which are highly unlikely to commit mass murder or terrorism. Now criminals and terrorists are a different subject. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Why don’t we trash political correctness and go after the vipers in their nest?

I called Patty Murray on a number of issues including gun control today.The numbers I called went directly to voice mail. I think it was her number in Bellview that I got a live voice. He did not want to listen to my concerns and he used the fall back question of did I think it was right that people had other means such as online and gun shows to buy guns without a background check. My response was that if someone wanted to kill someone bad enough they did not need a gun, they could just as easy buy a pressure cooker http://www.murray.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contactme

Not only did they not have a license to carry a gun, they were also seen jay walking against the light on a video camera on their way home after the bombing.

Now we really have got them dead to rights. That is really what they are asking the surviving bomber. Why did he not just wait for the light to change?

A far more relevant issue of public interest that the authorities should be coming clean on. The seedy shabby, unkempt apartment the bomber brothers infested has no guns, no ammunition, no pressure cookers, no ball bearings. Not even a microscopic trace of explosive materials. Where did they get this stuff and where did they assemble the devices? Who is putting a complete clamp on any discussion or dissemination of this information??

#14, you hit the nail on the head. Few places, if any, have stricter gun control than Northern Ireland and yet thousands of weapons were bought from Libya, the vast majority of which were slipped past the Coast Guard and into NI. The UK has long had serious gun control and terrorist security, long before 9/11.

A friend of ours, RN officer who saw action in the Falklands War, then serving NATO at the Norfolk navy base in Virginia, was in London for a war cabinet meeting on the Gulf War at 10 Downing Street. Both he and his aide (in an anteroom) were forced to fling themselves over and behind desks as a mortar hit the building. Luckily, it was only one; the other one didn´t explode.

A mortar. In London. 10 Downing Street. Heavy security. The incident was later determined to be an IRA action, using a work van with a launching platform fitted for a mortar. That was February 1991. UK security was higher than it is here now and yet this happened.

Three years later Baroness Thatcher was targeted by the IRA in Brighton--her hotel was bombed and several members of her cabinet were killed, others maimed.

Gun control? Pah!

This only adds to what the 2nd Amendment supporters have been saying all along: folks intent on murdering someone don´t care about licensing laws (feels funny to even have to write that down). It probably would have been better for the gun-grabbers if the guys HAD been licensed... BTW, re #11--I think I would have reminded him that all dealers have to run background checks, even at gun shows, and as far as I know, the only way to take actual delivery from an online sale is to go thru a licensed dealer--who runs a background check. (My son had to go thru an FFL dealer just to get a part of a frame).

The older one appears to have been convicted of domestic abuse involving him assaulting his girlfriend, so its possible that he could not get a firearms license in Massachusetts, or pass the federal background check to purchase a firearm under current law.

The younger one was too young to qualify for a firearms license in Massachusetts. So he could not purchase a gun there.

The gun control laws are already in place to keep those two from legally purchasing guns, so what good will new gun control laws do?

Gun Control: A theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.

#20, minor correction: The Brighton hotel attack occurred in 1984, but the IRA claimed credit for that one too. I think it was also that year that a Women´s Police Constable was gunned down in London by an automatic weapon fired from the Libyan Embassy. No arrests were ever made.

How about scrapping ALL gun laws and then pass this one: If you use a gun in a crime, 10 years minimum, no parole. If you fire the gun, 20 years, no parole. If someone is shot, life without parole. If someone dies, automatic death penalty with one appeal only. Enforce stringently.

Gun crimes would all but disappear.

CONCORD, N.H. — In October 2006, John Breckinridge, a Manchester police officer, saw his partner, Michael Briggs, shot to death in an alley. It was a searing moment that not only cost the Briggs family a father and husband, it also sent Mr. Breckinridge into a spiral of depression and doubt. He became obsessed with the suspect, Michael Addison, and wanted nothing more than for him to be put to death.

To read about the Duke University freshman turned adult-film star is to feel nostalgic for the bygone age of dormitory parietals that barred the opposite sex from visiting the rooms of well-brought-up young ladies. Of course, such rules are an outmoded relic. Yet their demise exposes a truth about college students. They may no longer be minors but they remain more chrysalis than butterfly, not yet fully formed adults. No matter how smart, no matter how elite their college, their judgment is impaired — and not just when they’re drinking. They try on identities like so many discarded outfits before

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time." Palmer says the animal attacked his 7-month-old child after the baby

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
