You mean they broke existing gun laws?

So it’s obvious... we need more laws. If we have more laws, then maybe the next group of terrorists will feel obligated to follow them.

Massachusetts state law allows residents under 21 to have rifles, but only those weapons holding 10 rounds of ammunition or less, and only then if the holder has a police-issued ID card.

The guy was willing to set a bomb next to an 8 year old boy and his 6 year old sister and walk away, knowing what would happen to them. He's a murdering, maiming TERRORIST ....like he really gives a flying flip about obeying the law regarding an ID card or a weapon only holding 10 rounds or less? So let's crack down even harder on those that DO obey the law & render them defenseless while these animals are running around killing people (including armed LEOs) .... makes sense to me. /S

'Bill S-7, the Combating Terrorism Act, includes provisions that make it an offence to leave the country to participate in acts of terror. It also grants police the powers to pre-emptively arrest someone and hold them for three days without charge, and allows for imprisonment for up to 12 months for refusing to testify before a judge in an investigative hearing.'

Joy.

Actually, probably more than a parking ticket .... authorities are investigating if the older bro was involved in a triple homicide back in 2011.

“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.”

There was an earlier thread about this earlier. The above quote is really nonsensical.It actually proves 2nd amendment proponents right. But the dumbasses at Reuters can't even figure that out. When they do, this will disappear down the memory hole.

Commence RAIDING ALL MOSQUES WITHIN REACH OF THOSE BOMBERS. They probably served as weapons depots for these punks. If our gov’t can raid every home in a neighborhood, THEY SURELY CAN RAID THE MOSQUES!

Anything not to state the truth... “Despite a bevy of tough Massachusetts gun laws, these boys had no problem getting their hands on firearms, further buttressing the view that criminals don’t obey gun laws.”

I'm just surprised the Chicago media hasn't posted this headline yet:

Gangbanger accused in string of murders didn't have gun license...

But then again, the Chicago media are apparently much smarter than Reuters.

Every law discussed by this President and Congress would have done nothing to prevent the Boston bombing.

Is there ANY law that could have prevented it?

Well, since the perps were Muslims terrorists ... and Muslims terrorists seem to be able to get into this country ... and if it saves just 1 life ... ... ...

Since Massachusetts has one of the strictest gun laws I would think that this proves gun laws do not work, not the other way around.

No gun licenses?

I hope the Boston governore makes sure the state adds that transgression to the list of charges.

No idiot. It proves the wrothlessness of gun laws. If they HAD gun permits, this worthless rag would be screaming that the permitting process needs tightening up.

I have heard that blonde troll on FOX around 6:45 - she’s a raving lib like all the idiots involved with the “Hill”.

More gun laws will not stop terrorists and everyday criminals from getting guns, but they will make law-abiding people in Watertown or other places like it even more defenseless than they currently are.

No. No. No. You all are focused on the wrong things!!!

Here is what must be done: Outlaw sales of pressure cookers, require background checks for BB sales, and create a national database to purchase nails. This will keep us safe.

With a record of conviction for Domestic Violence, the older bomber could not have passed the background check for a pistol permit, nor could he have passed the background check to buy any firearm.

“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.”


That’s just retarded—the fact that even with Massachusetts’s byzantine gun registration laws they were able to obtain guns should be an argument *against* passing stricter gun laws, since obviously criminals always will be able to get their hands on guns and it is law-abiding citizens who are left defenseless. Betcha many Boston suburbanite liberals wished they had a weapon when that terrorist scumbag was on the loose looking for a place to hide.
