Schumer: "FBI May Have Messed Up"

(WENY)-- New York Senator Chuck Schumer says the FBI, "may have messed up" when it came to investigating the activities of the Tsarnaev brothers prior to the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Sunday, Schumer announced he's introducing legislation aimed at preventing individuals on a Terrorist Watch List from buying firearms.

Schumer says he has great faith in the FBI and that the agency has been great at helping to prevent terror attacks in the country, but in the case of the Boston Marathon Bombings, he believes there was information that didn't receive enough attention.

In a statement Schumer said, "I want to know why, I want to know when Tsarnaev came back from Russia, given that he was on a watch list and given that we were allerted by a foreign country that he may be dangerous and he seems to have taken a radical turn, why he, at the very least, wasn't interviewed again."
