All terrorists were not created equal

We are angry and mortified that 'terrorists', foreign or domestic committed a crime against humanity at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and well we should be. It is ironic that at the same time the Senate found it difficult to garner enough votes to pass a watered down gun control bill which at least provided for expanded background checks. In view of the Newtown massacre, one would have thought that some form of gun control legislation would sail through Congress much as the Patriot Act did after 9/11. Apparently when it comes to legislation, in the eyes of Congress all terrorists were not created equal.
