Boston Bombers had Guns. Questions. (Vanity)
Vanity ^ | 4-19-13 | Doomonyou

Posted on 04/19/2013 9:14:29 PM PDT by Doomonyou

The bombers engaged the police in a couple of serious gun battles in the last 24 hours. Not one word about what kind of weapons were used by the terrorists. Fully automatic? Rifles? Pistols? Flintlocks?" Why no word on the type of weapons? Right after Sandy Hook all we heard was all the evils about the nasty AR-15 used. So what's the deal now?

Did the 19 year old get the weapons?

How about his older Non American citizen brother?

Where did they get these weapons and from whom?

Fast and Furious? < /tinfoil hat>

Other members of their terrorist cell?

Just wondering.

The younger brother was too young to buy a pistol and the older brother had a Lautenberg conviction.

I’m pretty sure they had flintlocks so there was no need to mention it. /s

Your post reminded me. I was watching CNN today and a reporter on the scene said, “Police are rushing down the street with assault type guns.”

I nearly laughed my head off. They were rifles, not guns (actually guns are neither handguns nor rifles), they weren't “assault type”, either since no one knows what the govn. thinks an “assault” “gun” is so no one knows what an “assault type” is.

Dumb reporters and dumb Hussein/government. “Assault type guns.” Does anyone else think that is funny?

Didn’t they lob grenades at police? Or were they improvised explosive devices? Did they have full auto weapons or was that only law enforcement firing their full auto AR 15s like mad men? Didn’t they travel for training abroad for terrorist training camps? Who funded them? Who trained them? Did they have jobs?

Why did they not disguise themselves better? Why did they not leave the area?

Useful young indoctrinated idiots to do dirty work so Hezbollah or other international juvenile jihad strokes hide in the shadows. Iran has close relations with North Korea, how do we know it’s not North Korean influence?

Fast and Furious?

Apparently, in December 2012, 25 Chechen nationals were smuggled across the Mexican border, I wonder if they shopped at the Holder/Cartel duty free shop?

There are lots of questions about these two and their relatives and associates. Where did the money come from? Questioned by the FBI but still can fly? Who do they know at Immigration that let them stay? What did #1 actually do for 6 months in Russia?

Don’t let the MSM slide on these.

Pistols and/or rifle may have belong to the policeman they killed over MIT.

I heard there were pipe bombs thrown out of the car toward police and two failed to explode. I don’t know how many were thrown.

That’s true - that may be where their firearms came from.

Mass has some really harsh firearms laws. The older brother was not a US citizen and so it would be much harder for him to legally purchase firearms. The younger brother, while a US citizen was too young to legally purchase/own a handgun.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_Massachusetts

This is going to get interesting.

I would wager that the firearms, lots of money and other things were given to the two bombers by some foreign nationals who have and support cells in the US.

0bozo probably had Holder send some of his FBI agents over and supply them with the necessary tools to pull their diversion from the Saudi Royalty family member they picked up the other day. The family member probably already knew about the bombings beforehand and was there to watch how terrorists do their deeds real time for a cheap thrill. 0bozo probably got a call from Saudi Royalty about after they heard one of their own was pegged as a terrorist on national TV. They probably said “remember all that money that paid for your college and the campaign funds we have been sending to you the past few election so you could win? Well that stops now if you don’t get him out of jail and deport him back to us ASAP”...

If the older one had military training, disarming a campus cop might not have been all that difficult, sadly.

the media is probably waiting for marching orders on that.

a clue is how the captured terrorist is treated. since it’s been reported that the FBI mirandized him, they are going to de-terrorize him. if that works, then they’ll start portraying him as a misguided kid. then they can start in our guns again.

I heard they had “improvised” grenades .... this could be the same as the ‘crude’ pipe bomb type explosives they had.

My personal opinion .... they had no idea the resources that would/could be brought to bear (public input as well) and stayed in the area, thinking they had time to pull some more terrorist acts. They had more explosives and at least one more pressure cooker bomb they lobbed at police.

A mechanic said they drove fancy cars a lot ... seemed to have different ones frequently (Mercedes, Porsche) so that sounds like they were being bankrolled. Who might have LOTS of money ... who was hanging around watching the race (or maybe the crowd) at ‘big boom’ time ... who was acting suspiciously enough to get tackled and held for police? Who is the Obama administration trying to get out of the country FAST and lying about it when this was discovered? One member of the Saudi royal family, that’s who. Hmmmm .... makes one wonder .....

Maybe because the libs in the media already lost the gun control battle, they no longer feel a need to demonize guns...at least for the moment. Remember: most of what the MSM reports—and doesn’t report—is agenda-driven.

I think the regulation of pressure cookers is in order. It required two to injure hundreds, and kill three.

The MIT cop was shot.

Now think how bad it would have been if the backpacks had been placed at waist level.

Reminds me of a DI, back in the '60's, making the 'cruits, who called their M14 a 'gun,' recite at the top of their lungs this unforgettable dollop of poetry:

"This is my rifle, this is my gun. This one's for shooting, this one's for fun."

Yes money connection and training connection.

The 2 juvenile jihad boys were encouraged, influenced, trained, financed and supported by outsiders to do these acts. Upon interrogation with truth serum and other techniques from our intel agencies the current muzzie will give names of people or cut outs he was approached by from the internet or local muzzie club who don’t exist — phony names and identities of experienced terrorists, rogue government agents who gently handle these psychopaths without too much control on tactics but play on indoctrination or vices. Sheep led to slaughter. Expendable pawns in a larger game.

Not sure about the terrorists’ weapons, but listening to the surreal amount of gunfire on the recordings of last night’s gun battle (almost all of which was ineffective from our side, I might add), I wonder if the Feds have many of those 1.6 billion rounds left, or if they’ll have to order some more now.

They shot the MIT policeman while he was on the radio in his car. So they had at least one gun before the encounter.

There was a lot of spraying and praying in those gunfights, Was it from the terrorists or from the cops? Do Boston Cops Have M-4s or AR's? I saw many black rifles being carried by cops but what are they?

They were rifles, not guns (actually guns are neither handguns nor rifles), they weren't “assault type”, either since no one knows what the govn. thinks an “assault” “gun” is so no one knows what an “assault type” is.

Well if I had to define these things, "Assault rifles" would be an M-16/M-4 that can fire fully automatic. AR's? Those are just semi automatic rifles.

This:

And this:

Are the same gun.
