Boston Marathon bombings unlikely to affect gun control, immigration reform going forward

BOTTOM LINE

New information is coming to light every day in the on-going investigation into the bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15th. But there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the tragic event, including whether it could have been prevented, and what sort of lasting impact, if any, will it have on domestic policies such as immigration reform and gun control. Many of you wrote in asking to address these lingering questions.

Rosalyn Minassian asked: Why did the FBI ignore Russia's multi warnings? There is so much that could be prevented.

Fallan Patterson tweeted: Will sporting events become stricter about unattended bags? Or even searching bags in non-stadium events?

Mark L wrote in on Yahoo! answers: Will this affect gun control laws? Because I now support the right to bear arms.

And Sheila Hall wanted to know: I think it will be interesting to see how this tragedy impacts immigration reform, what are your thoughts?

Thank you for your thoughtful questions and please be sure to keep them coming on Twitter, Facebook and Yahoo answers. We’ll have a lot more on the on-going investigation into the attacks in Boston on “This Week” on Sunday. Be sure to tune in.
