We know the national press simply revels in banality but did you know the brothers Tsarnaev were not licensed to carry? Who would have guessed? The AP finally broke that story to its stunned readers. Has anyone checked their magazines' capacity?
"A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn't have 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."
Yes, always get a permit before you have a shootout with the cops.
