Registration Doesn’t Mean Confiscation ?


Connecticut has an “assault weapon” problem.

Politicians rammed through a law demanding that citizens register scary-looking firearms and standard capacity magazines, and the citizenry overwhelmingly responded by being “militantly sedentary.”

Gun owners sat on their butts and refused to register either arms or magazines, all but daring the state to do anything about it.

Of the estimated 375,000-400,000 firearms deemed “assault weapons” by the state,  more than 325,000 remain undocumented. Only about 50,000 were registered for future confiscation.

The requirement to register standard capacity magazines was laughed at even louder by the citizenry; just 38,000 (less than 2 percent) of an estimated 2 million standard capacity magazines holding greater than ten rounds of ammunition were registered with the state.  (

  2. There are those in Conn. demanding that the popo arrest and cage the non complying. I think that if they try it, they will run out of cops a long time before they run out of jail cells.
