Which just calls for stronger gun control so, um, bad guys can’t get guns or something.
A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn’t have gun permits.
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.
He says it’s unclear whether either ever applied and the applications aren’t considered public records.
Of course it’s extremely difficult for anyone to get a permit in Massachusetts. Not that gun laws stop bad actors from acting badly.
