  •  And I was wrong on that; the wounded MTBA officer (0+ / 0-)

    was injured during that firefight, too. The next post down, though, suggests that they actually were using an "assault rifle" during the firefight: an AR-15-type rifle. It's unclear where they got these weapons; apparently none of the appropriate local jurisdictions are admitting to having issued a permit to Tamerlan. Dzhokhar is too young to have such a permit, although he could purchase ammunition for the rifle, or the bulk reloading powder or shotgun shells they used to get the powder. Obviously, they could have purchased them on the black market in Massachusetts, or possibly found a private seller in New Hampshire.

    -7.25, -6.26

    We are men of action; lies do not become us.
