Default The “Assault Weapon” Rebellion

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/townhallmagazine/2014/04/12/the-assault-weapon-rebellion-n1822409

Quote:
In the April issue of Townhall Magazine, Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens asks what would happen if a liberal government passed a new gun law but nobody obeyed it?
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) signed what the Hartford Courant called “the toughest assault weapons legislation in the nation” last year. It required owners of semi-automatic firearms to register all firearms designated as “assault weapons” with the state government, along with any “high capacity” magazines they may own, by December 31, 2013.

The Malloy regime expected Connecticut residents to register somewhere between 372,000-400,000 firearms, and roughly 2 million firearm magazines that held more than 10 rounds before January 1.

What they got instead was defiance.

Just 50,000 of the estimated 372,000 so-called “assault weapons” in the state were registered by the deadline, or less than 15 percent. That’s still far better than the anemic 38,000 “high capacity” magazines that were reported to authorities, out of 2 million.

Why is compliance so low? We can’t know for sure. After all, the owners of these firearms and magazines refused to register, so we can’t easily interview them.


it continues...
I don't believe that I'm alone in the opinion that things are getting interesting. Liberal government is starting to get push back.

Of course that also reminds me of the old curse: "May you live in interesting times."

A big thumbs down to the cowards that registered. Two big thumbs up for the brave who resisted tyranny.

Good for Conneticut!

And I continue to wonder; where did they get the figures for the magazines? Anyone can just walk into a store and pick one up. Anybody in Conn could come here and buy them...And just how did the morons expect to enforce something that is that vague?

If I owned a gun store, I would consider selling any hi-cap mags to conn residents at cost or below, if I could afford it.

50k registered is still too many, in my less than humble opinion.

The population of CT in 2010 was about 3,600,000. From 1998 to 2012 about 58 percent of CT residents bought guns: That figure comes to about 2,000,000 people buying guns in a 15 year period.

http://www.businessinsider.com/number-of-guns-sold-in-us-each-year-2012-12

CT had defacto "assault weapons" registration for many years prior to the massacre of those teachers and kids by Adam Lanza and the draconian gun laws that followed. Furthermore, every gun sold in CT for many years has been "registered" with the state police at time of purchase. The gun dealer makes four copys of the DPS-3-C form. The dealer retains a copy, the buyer gets a copy, the local sheriff or chief of police gets a copy, and a copy is furnished to the firearms branch of the CT state police.

Quote:
With minor exceptions (not included here), it is illegal, under Connecticut law, to possess assault weapons unless the owner possessed it before October 1, 1993 and obtained a DPS certificate of possession within the deadlines specified in law (CGS §§ 53-202d(a) and 53-202m).

Although the statute requiring the certificate does not use the term “registration,” the features of the law are comparable to the machine gun registration statutes. The certificate of possession must contain a description of the firearm that identifies it uniquely, including all identification marks. It must also include the owner's full name, address, date of birth, thumbprint, and any other information DPS deems appropriate (CGS § 53-202d).
http://www.cga.ct.gov/2011/rpt/2011-R-0074.htm

Maybe the anti-gun politicians in CT don't care if folks "register" their "assault weapons" since they are already "registered".

Good for those who did not register them. The Constitution gives us the right to rebel against Tyranny! And what they attempted to do is a violation of the Constitution. So I am disappointed with those who registered their weapons. The day may come when they regret their cowering down to the liberal progressive socialist morons in office! If I recall in History Hitler did the same thing with getting the people to register their weapons. I think like the Ranchers in Nevada, people are getting tired of it finally!!!!!
