Bullet Point

Neither of the suspects in the Boston bombing had gun permits.

Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) 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.

But he says the 19-year-old Dzhokhar (joh-KHAR’) would have been denied a permit because of his age. Only people 21 or older are allowed gun licenses in Massachusetts.

This will now become the standard boilerplate of the NRA and every gun-rights supporter for the next ten years or so: gun control doesn’t work, so why have it?

Bonus: Andy Borowitz on the courageous senators who stood up to the American people.
