THE BRONX - Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly testified in Washington today on the heels of a failed car bomb attempt in Times Square.

Kelly told Congress members that a gap in gun laws should be closed, pointing out that the suspect in the bomb plot, Faisal Shahzad, purchased a gun in Connecticut in March. Kelly said a loophole in the federal gun law allows people on the federal terror watch list to buy explosives and firearms.

New data released by the U.S. Government Accountability Office shows that since 2004, more than 1,100 people on the list were able to buy guns and explosives from licensed dealers.
