No, that is impossible! If it were illegal for them to have guns, they would never have shot anyone. Everyone knows that. /s

What if there had been a ban on pressure cookers?

What concerns me is that they will push through a ban on gunpowder. And maybe that was the whole point in letting these bastards blow up people.

“Boston attack suspects not licensed to own firearms “....

Well surprise, surprize, surprise!

There's a lot of this going around in the criminal world (Chicago, and numerous other places comes to mind)

200 rounds fired and only one hits suspect in the leg? What kind of training do these doofusses have? That is why WE need high cap magazines because they sure as hell can’t protect anybody. Guess they train with air soft!

Pardon me, I’m out here in flyover country. What does “licensed to have a gun” mean? We don’t have licenses for our guns. Does this mean Mass. already has gun registration?

I swear I read somewhere in all of this that they obviously had some sort of weapon when they killed officer Sean Collier but that they took his duty weapons and used them in the firefight in Watertown later that night. Can anyone confirm?

So who got the firearms for them? The buyer was clean and got them legally no doubt??

Because when laws don't work, clearly we need more.

It's the liberal mindset in action. They are the anointed ones, therefore they are never wrong; so if something isn't working, you obviously need more of it.

The news that the suspects were not authorized to own firearms will likely add fuel to calls for tougher gun laws

Well that makes sense. It only follows that if they didn't obey a couple of dozen laws, another buch od laws will be what does the trick.

Duh! How many criminals, or people with criminal intent, will leave the bread crumb trail of legally registering their guns, or any kind of legal action? Start with Chicago and go on to any other american city.

I does my heart to know that the little scumbag couldn’t even commit suicide properly. He put the gun in his mouth, but only succeeded in making a painful airhole.
Now he will be subject to enhanced interrogation, before they finally get around to finishing him off.
I do regret that the bleeding hearts and lawyers will keep him alive as long as they can, though.

It looked to me like his brother was hit a couple of times.

So we have maybe... 200 rounds, 3 hits?

That’s about 1 hit for 60 or 70 shots.

Naturally, the new gun control laws being proposed to “stop the violence” will ask such questions as “Are you a Muslim?” and “Do you intend to commit terrorist acts?”

Under threat of conviction for perjury if you lie, of course!

I don't understand how these terrorists could be so insensitive to city and state gun control laws... Does this mean other criminals might ignore gun control laws?

How can it be? /s

Would love to know if the “writer” of this piece actually typed that with a straight face.

From this:

Along with determining that the suspects had made at least five pipe bombs, the authorities recovered four firearms that they believe the suspects used, according to a law enforcement official. The authorities found an M-4 carbine rifle — a weapon similar to ones used by American forces in Afghanistan — on the boat where the younger suspect was found Friday night in Watertown, Mass., 10 miles west of Boston.
