New York Democrat Says Boston Bombers Would Have Been Stopped by a Background Check
Rep. Carolyn Maloney must be privvy to some laws that are not on the books and unknown to everyone but herself. On MSNBC today, the gun control advocate declared that gun background checks would have stopped the Boston bombers. Even though, obviously, they didn’t.
Except that current background checks don’t apply to anyone buying pressure cookers, model cars and fireworks or whatever the bombers used to get their gunpowder. The gun they used wasn’t part of the attack, and may not have been part of their retreat to New York if they hadn’t been warned by Mrs. Tsarnaev.
I know politicians are deceptive and secretive, but I don’t think they’ve snuck Pressure Cooker Control into law yet. Why do Gun-Haters have to lie like this?
