Massachusetts Gun Laws

I thought Massachusetts had the toughest gun laws in the nation ... How could the bomb suspects of the marathon get guns ? How could this happen !
I guess Massachusetts needs more gun laws .

They will likely claim they bought them through a "gunshow loophole" in a state with lax laws and use this as means to push for more gun control

Massachusetts Gun Laws

If criminals can get around the laws, maybe we shouldn't have any laws.

Even with 4 posts, this one is pretty much a drive-by. Besides, this is all under discussion down in Law & Civil Rights.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
