How the Boston bombing could influence the gun debate
Investigators aren't saying where the Boston Marathon bombings suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev got the guns they allegedly used to attack law enforcement, killing an MIT campus officer and wounding a transit officer. "The ATF is working very closely with the FBI to track those weapons down and determine where they came from, but again, it's an active investigation," Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told Morning Joe. NBC News has confirmed that the Tsarnaev brothers did not have gun permits or petitions to carry weapons. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is underage to carry a firearm under Massachusetts law.

Long a defender of gun rights, the NRA tells Secrets that it is moving into the outdoors show business to guarantee that gun makers and gun users won't be pushed into a corner or eliminated entirely from the annual Harrisburg, Pa. show for hunters, anglers and campers.

Steve Stockman, R-Texas, said the amendment to a firearms bill from Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Patrick J. Toomey, R-Penn., — which was voted down, 54-46 — was an "anti-gun power grab."
