Making illegal guns even more illegal

Boston bomber suspects Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reportedly horded a small arsenal of guns. They were semi-automatic weapons. They did not have to go through a background check or have a permit. Authorities will now be forced to spend countless hours and personnel trying to track down exactly how, when and where they got their guns. They could have easily have gotten them over the Internet, at a gun show, or just simply bought them from an individual seller on the street or anywhere else.
They lived in Boston.  Massachusetts requires a license to own a firearm.  They did not have licenses.  The younger brother was too young to own a handgun.

In other words, it was already illegal for them to have guns -- and it did not stop them.
