After Jan 1st Connecticut residents who own standard capacity magazines and certain firearms that the state has determined to be considered “assault weapons” are going to be considered felons if they haven’t registered these extra scary items with the state.
This is a fine example of what we get when states pass feel good laws based on emotions. What all is required to be presented in order to register?
The application requires information such as the individual’s name, address, telephone number, motor vehicle operator’s license, sex, height, weight and thumbprint, as well as information about the weapon, including the serial number, model and any unique markings.
The large-capacity magazine declaration form includes much of the same information, including the applicant’s address and driver’s license number.
Of course there is a challenge to the new law but unfortunately has not made it up for a decision soon enough so residents are being encouraged to comply and hope that the law gets reversed.
I am certain that all the bad guys are in those lines ready to register their arms so this new law is gong to ensure everyone’s safety. Right? *crickets* *crickets*
