Something tells me that this whole incident of having Muslims from Russia blow up American citizens at the Boston Marathon, and then running around throwing homemade grenades, shooting people and causing a city to get shut down is not going to be a real boost to the Anti Constitution Democrats that want to take away our guns, and make citizens out of law breakers who came here illegally.

It might behoove us to keep our guns, and instead of making citizens out of non legal folks, we can cut back on some of the hand out programs like welfare, food stamps, public housing, and Obama phones, and let the free loaders get out and do some of the jobs that the non legal folks were doing. It would cut down on taxes, cut down on crime, and make it harder for terrorists to come here and blow us up.

Ok, here's a link with the article of the recent bombing in Boston..

Was the Deceased Bomber Married With a Baby? Heres More on His Alleged Wife and Child | Tamerlan Tsarnaev

In a story that continues to have some bizarre twists and turns (many of them are documented here), the Daily Mail is claiming to have pertinent information about a bombshell allegation that’s been floating around in media: The notion that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased Boston terror suspect, is married and has a three-year-old daughter.

Tsarnaev was, according to the report, regularly seen at 24-year-old Katherine Russell’s family home in Rhode Island — that is, until about one year ago when neighbors claim that they no longer observed him visiting.

The central claim is that Russell married Tsarnaev and that the two have a three-year-old daughter together named Zahara.

Initially, family members, including a woman who the Daily Mail claims matches Katherine’s description, said “no comment” when media questioned them at the Rhode Island home. But, later in the day, that changed.

The family issued a statement tonight responding to — and seemingly substantiating — the allegations. Without speaking, Katherine’s mother handed a statement to reporters. It read:

“Our daughter has lost her husband today, the father of her child. We cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred. In the aftermath of the Patriot’s Day horror, we know that we never really knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Our hearts are sickened by the knowledge by the horror he has inflicted. Please respect our family’s privacy in this difficult time.”

Neighbors have not been so quiet, though, with at least one claiming that the FBI and police were at the Russell family home early this morning. The source gave additional information about the family.

“I knew Katherine was married and she had converted to Islam,” one of the neighbors told the Daily Mail. “She went away to college about three or four years ago and I saw her a year later and she was dressed in the Islamic style. Her hair was covered and she was wearing very baggy, flowy clothing.”

The person went on to cite frequently seeing the girl with a man who she assumed was her “partner.” The two allegedly visited the family on weekends and, according to the source, may have lived in Boston.

“They were always together and had a little girl, who must be about three now,” the person said, noting that the duo hadn’t been seen together for the past year. “She moved back home and was living at home with the baby.”

The brothers’ aunt, Maret Tsarnaeva, made comments earlier in the day about her nephew having a child and a wife — her words sparking numerous questions about these claims.

Quoting Sekirei:

Nope, shouldn't affect it at all. Kind of stupid to punish everyone for the actions of a few..then again, many Americans are damn good at that. A few people do something heinous and the whole religion or race are the enemy... arrogance.

Maybe we should just get rid of Health Spas, High Schools, and Malls.... That's where these things seem to happen most...

I don't agree with lumping immigration and the need to keep guns in the hands of the severely mentally ill, nto one bucket....LOL.

Most immigrants are fine.   And remember that many Americans with no foreign ties have done mass shootings.

The connection claimed, it does not actually hold up.

People - any people - can become extremists, quickly.    Not all are mentally ill.   Some are pulled into extremism.  

Extremist philosophies appeal to people's frustrations and problems.   Cult psychology is effective and quick.   The bomber who died was a short time ago, a wrestler who wanted to wrestle for the US rather than Russia.   Something changed his world view.

In fact, those who advocate vigilantism and 'they're all bad' views of any group, are also pulled in by cult psychology - there is basically no difference between the person who bombs to right some imagined wrong and the one who goes militia.

I don't think immigration should be messed with at all. My MIL came here from South Korea when she was 18. She has never caused any trouble and became a full citizen when my husband was a teenager. His asshole father had always threatened to have her deported if she tried to leave, so Vince helped her study for her test and she passed. She is now a full citizen. Most immigrants are not criminals, I've enven known a few illegals and most of their cases were not ones of "border jumping". One woman was here legally until her husband started porking someone at work. He left her pregnant with two children and she became an illegal when she couldn't get the funds to extend her visa. Last I knew of her, she was trying to get legal aid to help her. Her husband is a citizen, so he is in no danger of leaving.

I'm more curious about the story of why the wife and granddaughter moved back home with her parents in the last year... Yah, that doesn't seem suspicious at all.

The 19yr old became a citizen last September 11th.

Idk.... I don't trust ANYONE at this point. Its a sad world!!

Quoting Anonymous:

Pretty sure these kids came over on school visa's, that was legal, and look what they did, they bombed and murdered innocent legal Americans.

Quoting tifbrown:

I don't think illegal immigrants should be allowed to become legal citizens. Why should they be able to skip the legal factors and get into the country ahead of people who are waiting and trying to do it the legal way.

1. Those guys were here legally on visas so they have nothing to do with illegal aliens.
2. The religion of a person or their mate does not make them evil or any more likely to commit such a horrible crime.
3. Just because someone has a job doesn't mean they will get off of welfare, people lie all the time about where and how much they work. And some are still not able to get off of welfare even if they do have a job.
4. Your article makes no sense. Your question is about illegals but you are talking about legal citizens.

It shouldn't impact anyone becoming a citizen. Also, I wish ppl would stop saying they're taking our guns. That's not true. We will have to register our guns and go through more evals to get a gun. That's not taking them! After all the shootings that were NOT done by illegal immigrants or those from other countries, why would us as American citizen NOT want stricter gun control and more mental evaluations and background checks. Smh.
