Connecticut residents waited in long lines on Thursday to register their firearms and high-capacity magazines before the states new gun laws go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014.
WFSB-TV reports that a long-line of people stood outside the Public Safety Building in Middletown, Conn., all day to register semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines. Several residents were upset with the unconstitutional requirement, while at least one person didnt appear to mind.
I understand why theyre doing it, but I dont think its constitutional, resident Scott Boccio told WFSB-TV as he was registering his guns.
Charles Gillette, who was registering magazines, told the news station that he would have a problem with it if the state was trying to ban the magazines or firearms, but said if they want to just know where they are, thats fine with me.
However, not one gun owner who was registering firearms or magazines said they think the new laws will reduce gun violence.
If people are going to do things illegally, theyre not going to be here registering their gun, Jared Krajewski, another resident registering firearms, said.
For now, in Connecticut, the law is the law. The new gun control measures were put into place following the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
State police Lt. Paul Vance said that gun owners must fill our forms completely and some may require a notary.
Don’t you just hate it when the sheep start to whine ?
This is a tragic display of those who no know history.
Note to Charles “The Sheep” Gillette: If “it’s fine” with you telling the government where your weapons, magazines and ammo are, what will you do when they come to get them? (Although it sounds like you will have already given them up voluntarily before that ever happens.)
Registration will not prevent one killing....not one.
Watch, very closely, what happens after the next “incident”.
Registration will not prevent a killing but it will be useful for confiscation during a martial law event.
Hey, if Adam Lanza’s mom would have been required to register that AR-15, then after the Sandy Hook shooting,, the cops would have known the serial number of the gun he used. Or something,,,,,
Stupid for law enforcement,,, only useful for confiscation.
Sure it will!
But it will save the ones as we say in the South "need killin'."
If you REALLY know the reason, then you wouldn't be registering them because the real reason is to eventually outlaw them and confiscate them.
But they would have been able to trace it back to his mom...oh wait...
But it makes everyone feel good. And that is important. /sarc
Exactly. Expect a knock (if your lucky) on the front door in the future.
It also allows them to enter your house without your permission because you have a weapon that the government has deemed illegal.
so are you saying when the confiscation begins we should just steal one anothers guns? Therefore there is no way to figure out where any of the guns are at?
I live in Maryland so that’s probably next on the agenda but if and when it does.. I’ll have lost or misplaced all my weapons.
How secure is your registry, CT? What an easy way for a gun accessing criminal to know where to find the guns of his choice.
Yeah, Scott, but there you are going right along with it.
