Could the elder of the brothers have walked into a gun store and purchased them legally? - I suppose. However, I think it is highly doubtful and as a proponant of universal background checks, I hope they purchased them at a gun show or in some other questionable manner with nothing more than a wink and a smile.
I am not against assult weapons or any other type of weapon for that matter. I just think that if purchasing and owning a vehicle in this country requires registering it with the Department of Motor Vehicles, maybe purchasing and owning a fire arm should require registering it with the Department of Justice or the ATF without exception.
Law enforcement officials identified the suspect still on the loose as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was identified as the man killed during an encounter with police after an armed carjacking of a Mercedes SUV in Cambridge. The brothers’ alleged motive in Monday’s bombings remains unclear, but in the last several months, Tamerlan Tsarnaev had posted videos to YouTube indicating his interest in radical Muslim ideologies.
So, can you guess how the Boston Bombing Brothers acquired thier firearms? - Without a doubt we will eventually find out, but I am just surprised that as of yet, the media has yet to even ask the question. What's your guess? - How did they get the guns and will the one remaining terrorist, Dzhokar Tsarnaev be taken alive?
