BREITBART by AWR HAWKINS (MY TWO SENSE: If enforcing existing gun laws were important to Progressives, and if gun control for the sake of “saving just one life,” this might mean something to the Constitution and Second Amendment haters. But since the real agenda is a national takedown and usrupation of all we hold dear, it doesn’t mean a damned thing. Progressives, including this President, Eric Holder, and all the other Obama appointed czars, despise the ground on which We, the People stand, and their hatred stretches to include every freedom loving American. Their gun control push centers on the term “assault weapon,” and if that term is used to ban certain guns, the meaning of the term will broaden to include every defense weapon we have. Why is the term, “assault weapon” used rather than “defense weapon?” Ask yourself, and then never again allow use the term of assault weapon; replace it with this descriptive label, “Defense Weapon!” JM)

Report: Boston Marathon Bombers Broke Gun Laws to Acquire Weapons
Less than a week after the push by Democrats push for more gun control went down in flames in the Senate, Reuters is reporting the suspected Boston Marathon bombers ignored gun laws that are already on the books in possessing the firearms they used in shootouts with the police.
According to Reuters, “The two brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings, who police say engaged in a gun battle early Friday after a frenzied manhunt, were not licensed to own guns in the towns where they lived.”
This means the handguns and “at least one rifle” the brothers had with them were acquired and possessed in ways that broke laws already in existence.
For example, to have acquired and possessed the firearms legally, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder brother, would have first needed “to apply for a gun license with the local police department where he lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts.”
In Massachusetts, a Firearms Identification Card (FID) is required before buying, transporting, or possessing a firearm.
Another example of how new gun control laws will not deter criminals who have been ignoring the old laws for years.
