Among all the "good boys gone bad" crap presently circulating in the MSM...and be assured that the 19-year-old will no doubt be hosting Saturday Night Live any moment if the New York Times has its way...here's an interesting little tidbit.
After those rollicking crazy Boston boys blasted an eight-year-old into oblivion, they did a little workout at the gym and planned to head to New York City to party party party. A problemo surfaces...they only had one pistol. I mean, two terrorists, one pistol, not gonna look good on FaceBook, n'est-ce pas? So did the boys race to an Internet cafe to buy maybe a dozen or so full-auto assault weapons off the Internet, with same-day shipping? Speed to a LGS for the "Tuesday Terrorist Two-Fer, No NCIS No Way"? Wait for the weekend gun show where they could stock up on RPGs, grenades and those rifles with the shoulder thingie that sticks up?
None of the above. Instead, they went to the one firearms superstore where they were sure guns would be in stock...they walked up to the police car of MIT Officer Sean Collier, killed him in very cold blood and tried to grab his gun. The reason those lovable Holden Caulfield-esque urchins failed on that task was that apparently the Islamic Terrorism 101 class on the Internet doesn't include retention holsters, disabling of. Don't worry...I'm sure the curriculum will be updated any moment now!
Man, if we'd only had a law that made it illegal to transfer a gun without a background check! That would have stopped them dead in their tracks!
Yeah, that's pretty stupid, isn't it? It turns out that criminals, be they terrorists, gangbangers, professional killers or crazy people, don't obey laws...that's why we call them criminals. And that's the reason that the American people have consistently rejected the strident calls for civilian disarmament.
And let me reiterate a point I made immediately after the Boston bombings...people who wage war on innocents and children are vermin. We don't need to agonize about why vermin do the things they do. We only need to know how to exterminate them.
