Report: Suspects had no gun licenses
The Hill ^ | 04/21/13 | Mike Lillis

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 obtained a license from the town of Cambridge, Mass., where he lived. But he didn't take that step, Dan Riviello, spokesman for the Cambridge Police Department, told Reuters.

Not to make light of the situation, but some times you need to laugh. My elderly Great Aunt, who has since passed away of natural causes, couldn't cook and in an attempt to use her pressure cooker blew the top off which embedded into her kitchen ceiling, sent boiling water and some sort of meat and potatoes everywhere. Fortunately my sister and I as well as my Aunt were in the dining room. My father took away her pressure cooker and right to purchase any more pressure cookers. (She couldn't drive any longer to go get her own.)

Well, sure-—didn’t that “gun free zone “ sign work properly at Sandy Hook? Does MA have those signs at its borders?
