I’m not sure if he is a suspect or just someone not cooperating. Could be a misguided yoot.

FBI on scene.... agents don’t investigate or lend assistance in general robberies or carjackings, so likely some suspicions that these two could be the Marathon Day terrorist bombers.

Yamamoto was talking about a conventional military invasion. These guys don’t wear uniforms and go charging into battle under the banner of the Rising Sun.

Will they not fall and bleed just like a soldier when an armed citizen stops their terror attack?

I saw the video earlier. Guns were drawn by officers and the dude in that image remained in that position. Reporters do not know for sure if he is related to the activities. A reporter on the scene said that he (the reporter) didn't see that person with any weapons.

This is Shamil Basayev, who was a Chechen Islamist leader. He was the leader of the Chechen Islamist militas that pulled off attacks in Beslan, and were responsible for the Moscow Theatre siege. The stereotype of the swarthy muslim terrorist is a dangerous perception. Intel captured as part of the Bin Laden compound raid, revealed plans to recruit “western looking” muslims to infiltrate the west.

I dare say, no armed citizen could have stopped this week’s terror attack. What are you going to do, just shoot everyone who is not you?

NO, NO, two redneck tea party-type conservative NRA gun-owners, registered Republicans just coming out of Wednesday services at a homophobic Evangelical church where they held a militia meeting in the fellowship hall while drinking Big Gulps and eating Chick-fil-a sandwiches.

FNC is stating that these two are robbers on the run and NOT related to the Marathon bombings.

They are robbers because they stole a Mercedes. Car jacked. Probably because they were on the run. They have some type of auto hand grenade launcher. Not your normal burglars. A backpack has been dropped off by them.

Yes, it is hard to stop bombings. Israelis are armed to the teeth, but that doesn’t stop the muzzies from blowing up their school buses and cafes. And that’s how the muzzies are going to do it here now, too.

CNN is always better during breaking news. Always.

I’m watching Boston TV on the web, live. Excellent coverage, including video from a guy watching it in Watertown.

One Watertown cop wounded, and the perps were throwing explosives out of the car. Police have a robot clearing the street of explosives. Lots of gunfire.

They arrested one guy who, unfortunately, was wearing a backpack, but then let him go. Apparently lives in the neighborhood.

Still ongoing in Watertown, not over at all.

Watertown has very multicultural population...... So my bet is these are Muzzies if these are real terrorist suspects tied to the Monday bombing

IOW Watertown is not a place where your white boy bombers will be living. The lib media is going to be choking on this one

No, but the knowledge that Americans are mostly armed, may make a terrorist think twice about pulling some sh!t.

“There is probably no people on earth more armed to the teeth than the Israelis.”

As I understand it that’s not true. The Israelis have pretty strict gun laws as compared to the US.

The Israel Dept. of the Interior makes notification to the generalpublic the requirements necessary for the obtaining of a permit to possess a firearm:

1. Applicant must be a permanent resident of Israel for 3 consecutive years prior to making application for a firearms permit.

2. Applicant years of age.

3. The permit request must be for personal use, not to engage in the business of firearms sales.

4. Applicant must fall into one of the following categories:

a. Part-time reservist (volunteer) for 3 years- may own 1 handgun
b. Such a reservist (volunteer) is a member of a gun club- may own 1rifle
c. Professional, licensed public transportation driver, transportinga minimum of 5 passengers- may own 1 handgun
d. Licensed animal control officer- may own 2 hunting rifles, *not*full automatic weapons, or semi-automatic weapons with a limitedcapacity magazine.
e. Full-time dealer of jewelry or large sums of cash or valuables-may own 1 handgun

West Bank and Gaza Strip Settlers:

1. A resident in a militarily strategic buffer zone, essential to thesecurity of the State of Israel- may own 1 handgun

2. A business owner in these geographic areas- may own 1 handgun

Veterans:

1. Veterans of the Regular Army honorably discharged with the rank ofnoncommissioned officer, and veterans of the Reserve Army with the rankof regimental commander- may own 1 handgun

2. Retired law enforcement officers with the rank of sergeant- may own 1handgun

3. Retired prison guards with the rank of squadron commander- may own 1handgun

Individuals:

Upon presenting documentation that one is about to receive a souvenir, aprize, an inheritance, or an award of appreciation from the Israel military.

Brief Summary of Israeli Gun Laws

Firearms Act, 1949, gives a lot of discretion on the subject to the Ministry of The Interior and the Ministry of Defense. The offshoot of this is

A)According to the law, anything with a barrel that shoots objects that can harm a human, or any part of such an item is a firearm. MoI has discretion. Currently, airguns are firearms. Further, the Ministry of Defense has the authority to define what firearms are “military firearms” - barring access to common serfs. Ever since 1950, any rifle larger than .22 and any automatic weapon were firearms.

B) The MoD can decide who it gives licenses to. The current policy is that gun licenses can be only given to:

a)People inheriting guns (no carry, possession only)
b)Hunters (2 shotguns only)
c)ex-military captains, private guards, taxi/bus drivers, gold dealers, inhabitants of danger zones (1 handgun only.)
d)target shooters (2 guns only)
e)Civil guard volunteers (1 handgun
f)Civil Guard Snipers (rifles)

.22 rifles are banned, except grandfathered ones, hunting with rifles is illegal. Any form of outdoor shooting is illegal. People may only buy 50 rounds per year, except those shot at public ranges.

Note that inhabitants of “danger zones” often get issued full-auto guns.
