Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  Connecticut government officials are “urging owners of now-illegal ‘assault weapons' and large capacity ammunition magazines to relinquish them to the police or make them permanently inoperable.”

On February 13th, Breitbart News reported that an estimated 20,000 to 100,000 “assault weapon” owners had failed to comply with Connecticut's requirement to register their weapons by January 1, 2014. At that time, there was no word on what Connecticut officials would do to enforce compliance–if they would do anything at all.

But according to the FOX News, Connecticut's Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection sent out a March 14th 2014 letter advising gun owners delinquent on registration to give their weapons to the police or render them non-operational.

Those “who fail to comply face charges of possessing an unregistered assault weapon and/or high capacity magazine.”

    1. A good portion of the newly created felons are probably democrats. Numbers like that can readily swing a state election and I hope it does. The once great State of New York is next to defy oppression. When the shooting starts, I will not be praying for the souls of dead tyrants. May not one of them ever see the face of God.

    2. The phone numbers and mailing addresses of all the tyrants involved in this illegal attempt to enslave the good citizens of Connecticut are public information:Use it!

    3. It has begun. CT now wants those who didn’t register their so called assault weapons on time, have to give them over to the state or destroy them.
      There is one little flaw here. Even those who did apply, but 1 minute late, are now considered felons, and as such are not allowed to own any weapons. There is no second chance to do the states demands, even if you weren’t aware of it.
      I’m glad I moved out of CT about 20 years ago.

    4. Soon enough the same directive will be issued to those who complied with the law and registered their rifles and magazines on time as they were told to do.
