Connecticut: Citizens Ignoring the Mandate to Register Their Guns

Connecticut: Citizens Ignoring the Mandate to Register Their Guns

Remember the images of people lining up in Connecticut to register their weapons?  Turns out that only about 4% of the populace obeyed the dictators.  The rest hung on to their firearms and refuse to register them, leaving the government in the unenviable position of 1) not knowing who has what, and 2) having to coax them in—since the threats didn’t work.

Amid concerns about gun owners who failed in their last-minute attempts to register now-illegal assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines, lawmakers are considering granting an amnesty period for people who missed the registration deadline.

The comprehensive gun-control bill enacted last spring required owners of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines to register the guns and declare ownership of the magazine if they wished to keep them.

They claim that the amnesty is needed because so many well-meaning citizens tried to register their guns but post office closings kept them from getting it postmarked by Dec 31.  They spin the fact that only 4% of state gun owners even bothered to pay attention to the law at all.

Connecticut is going to have some ruckus on their hands if they push this.  Let’s hope the gun owners remember that they outnumber the State’s goons.

    Interesting and not wholly true. Fact is, in CT, whenever you purchase a firearm your purchase IS registered with the State. So they already know where the guns are. Furthermore, if they didn’t know…then how can they say only 4% registered? Those who failed to register will be felons of they are caught. I protest the law and have written to my state representatives…and I registered my high capacity magazines. My position to protest is stronger if I’m not a felon. And regardless of all this…as I said…the state already knows where the guns are. If they want to start disarming the citizenry they already have the means.

    And to that I say…Molon Labe.

      How did you “register” your magazines? None of mine have a serial number on them.

      God Bless you for standing up.

      When guns are outlawed, then I will be an outlaw.

      CT please go to The Dick Act of 1909…are you aware of this law? Dick law of 1902…can’t be repealed (gun control forbidden
      The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the efficiency of militia Bill H.R. 11654 OF jUNE 28,1902 and Invalidates all so-called gun control laws. The Dick Law cannot be repealed to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. go to I hope this information will be of some help..Don’t give up…God Bless All of you..

    The citizens can veto any law by ignoring it. Politicians ignore the will of the people at their own peril. They seem to forget that government derives it’s powers from the consent of the goverened
