On Wednesday Guns.com posted a story detailing the latest chapter in Connecticut’s war on gun owners. A law was passed at the end of last year that required certain gun owners to register their weapons with the State of Connecticut by December 31, 2013. Many gun owners simply did not register their guns. Others sent their applications in late or their applications were delivered late. Those people recently received a letter from the state:
The long and short of it it–if you missed the deadline, we will take your weapon away.
The article states:
According to the Journal Inquirer, 106 rifle owners and 108 ‘large capacity magazine’ owners in Connecticut were recently sent letters from the state police advising them that they had missed the deadline for registering their now-illicit firearms and accessories.
The state knew these individuals had these items because their registration applications were sent in, but postmarked too late to be processed.
This should be a wake-up call for anyone who doesn’t see gun registration as the beginning step of gun confiscation.
