    <SHOCK> Boston bombing suspects didn't have valid handgun licenses!

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...93K0HB20130421

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

    It seems Massachusetts has its own version of a "universal background check":

    http://www.nraila.org/gun-laws/state...achusetts.aspx

    "A private individual is permitted to sell not more than four firearms (rifles, shotguns, or handguns) per year unless sold directly to a licensed gun dealer. He must be properly licensed to possess these firearms and the purchaser must be properly licensed to buy them. The seller and purchaser must file a report of the sale with the Executive Director of the Criminal History Systems Board within seven days of the sale. This report must be on the proper forms provided by the Executive Director and give all required details regarding the seller, purchaser and the firearm being transferred, including the caliber, make and serial number, and the FID, license or permit number of the buyer."

    Golly-gee, this means that they broke the law!!

    Doubt they had explosives licenses either.
