This kind of logic apparently makes total sense in the mind of Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., who told MSNBC earlier today that federal gun control legislation could prevent future terrorist attacks like the Boston Marathon attack two weeks ago.

“One thing that Congress can do right now is pass the gun-safety laws,” Maloney explained. “As it stands right now, the next Tamerlan [Tsarnaev] can go to a gun show and buy all the guns he wants, all the weapons he wants, no problem, no questions asked. I think at the very least Congress should pass sensible gun-safety laws that law enforcement is asking for.”
