Last year we told you about how the State of Connecticut had passed some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, requiring state citizens to register their guns and banning over 160 specifically named firearms.
This week, Connecticut sent out letters demanding gun owners turn in their unregistered firearms or face felony arrest.
The State Police Special Licensing & Firearms Unit began mailing out notices to gun owners who attempted to comply with the law, but missed the January 1st registration deadline. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Gun Registrations always leads to Confiscation.
The letter demands firearm owners:
- Render their firearm permanently inoperable.
- Sell the firearm to a licensed gun dealer.
- Remove the Firearm from the State.
- Or make arrangements to turn their firearms over to the Connecticut State Police.
It goes on to tell residents they must dispose of any magazine that do not comply with the newly passed law as well.
The law bans the sale of any magazines that hold over 10 rounds of ammunition, and makes it a felony to own any so-called “assault rifle” that was manufactured after 1994. Residents who own firearms from before that date were required to register them with the state before January 1st 2014.
