Boston Terrorists Didn’t Have Gun Permits, Massachusetts Official Says

The suspected terrorists accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer and shooting it out with cops in the streets of Watertown did not have licenses for their guns, an official tells the Associated Press:

Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms.

More than 200 rounds of ammunition were fired during the shootout with cops in the wee-hours of Friday morning after the suspects had reportedly killed Sean Collier, a 26-year-old campus policeman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, and carjacked the driver of a Mercedes SUV.

In other developments, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Rep. Mike Rogers, said on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have used an alias to travel to Russia last year. The elder Tsarnaev brother’s Amazon account showed his interest in creating fake identification.

Tamerlan was killed in Friday’s shootout — police say he was run over by his 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar, who was at the wheel at the stolen SUV — and it was reported Sunday that Dzhokhar shot himself in the head before being capture late Friday, but survived and is now responding in writing to investigators’ questions, while being treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

    Which means that no matter how strict gun laws are, crazies will get guns and shoot innocent people who cannot defend themselves.

    What "Alice in Wonderland" logic will the anti-gun nuts use to respond to this shocking discovery?
