Boston bombing suspects weren't legally allowed to carry firearms

Boston bombing suspects weren't legally allowed to carry firearms, After the horrific bombings at the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, and the manhunt that followed, everyone has a long list of questions they want answered.

A topic that has been on everyone's mind is gun control, so it's only natural that people question where 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev got their guns, and if they owned them legally. According to an article published by Yahoo! News on April 21, neither suspect was legally allowed to carry firearms where they lived.

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly used handguns, a rifle, and a number of explosives in a shootout with law enforcement officers on Thursday, April 18. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after that confrontation, and his younger brother Dzhokhar was captured by authorities nearly 24 hours later after a massive manhunt.

The Tsarnaev brothers are believed to be responsible for the April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 170 more. Authorities also suspect that the brothers shot and killed MIT Patrol Officer Sean Collier on Thursday, April 18.
