No Gun Licenses for Marathon Bombers – Carol Platt Liebau


The AP reports that the men who detonated explosives to kill innocents at the Boston Marathons and later engaged in a shoot-out with police (after shooting an MIT security guard execution-style) didn’t have gun permits, according to Massachusetts state police.

But wait a minute.  I thought a rigorous system for regulating gun permits was supposed to prevent gun violence (that’s what Massachusetts state officials insisted upon passing the nation’s toughest gun laws back in 1998).

It’s almost as if the Tsarnaev brothers — terrorists, murderers, carjackers — had no respect for the (gun) laws . . .
