    In Mass green card holders can acquire a permit with background check and FBI fingerprints.
        The older brother was 26. He could have purchased anything legally. The 19-year-old wouldn't have been able to legally buy handguns or handgun ammunition, but rifles, shotgun ammunition, and bulk reloading powder would have been legal.

      by his older brother.  Wouldn't have had to purchase anything.  Or they could have been supplied by a third party, yet unknown.  That's my guess.
