Boston Marathon Bombers Broke Gun Laws to Acquire Weapons
breitbart.com ^ | April 22, 2013

Less than a week after the push by Democrats push for more gun control went down in flames in the Senate, Reuters is reporting the suspected Boston Marathon bombers ignored gun laws that are already on the books in possessing the firearms they used in shootouts with the police.

According to Reuters, "The two brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings, who police say engaged in a gun battle early Friday after a frenzied manhunt, were not licensed to own guns in the towns where they lived."

This means the handguns and "at least one rifle" the brothers had with them were acquired and possessed in ways that broke laws already in existence.

Her only concern is that her constituents, the criminals that make uo the DNC base, be well armed.

Well, if they got them from an FFL, the older one had to lie on question 12i.

Obviously we must immediately repeal the Second Amendment. It's the only solution.

As with all other issues, the collectivists cannot and will not intake any logic that doesn’t match their world view. The facts of the Boston bombers are of no concern to them.

Did they have the correct ATFE licenses to manufacture, transport, and detonate an explosive device?

Don’t give Eric Holder any ideas. I wouldnt put it past Holder to lean on NFA division to come up with a Type 10 FFL/Class 02 SOT for the brothers using the same crappy forgery as Obummers BC.

Since the O administration has stated the suspect #2 is a citizen and will not be tried in Military courts, can we now call him what he is: a traitor. This traitor has committed treason. People should hang for treasonous acts.

A few nut jobs use a gun and the Dems demand guns be banned.

A few nut job Muslems mass murder and the Dems will demand Muslems be banned.

Right? Right?

Hello Dems?

Bombs need be registered as well as bomb owners.

Or maybe even bombs need be banned?

Should work.

All criminals obey the law.

Right?

After all, the Govt banned illegal drugs and so now where are illegal drugs to be had?

Nowhere, right?

So bans clearly work.

Criminals and terrorists don’t mind breaking laws, so the only people inconvenienced by liberal gun “control” laws are decent Americans? Who would have guessed?

Well someone should call the police and have those ruffians arrested. If people get away with brazenly flaunting the rules like this ... why anarchy surely must follow.

The Lefty gun grabbers will not listen to the criminals get guns argumant even if it smacks them in the face. When the Tsarnaevs had weapons that were acquired illegally, the media goes mum. They don’t want the law abiding gun owner thinking his compliance does no good.

Anyone notice there seems to be a news blackout on the firearms they used.

Normally the police will give a photo op, show the weapons and call for more gun control.

I’m surprised they haven’t called on the SENATE to revote on the AW ban.

This traitor has committed treason.

According to the Constitution, which is the sole document which defines this crime, and the *only* crime so described in said document, "Treason shall consist of waging war against these United States..." I respectfully submit that the actions of the defendant were in fact waging war against these United States.

QED, you are correct. As to hanging, the Constitution does not specify a prescribed manner, but does clearly authorize a penalty of death upon conviction...
