Only 15% of Connecticut gun owners registered their military-style rifles with the state this year. 85% of ‘assault weapon’ owners flouted the law.
Now, the Connecticut is sending letters to gun owners telling them to “surrender, destroy or sell” your “assault weapons.”
Guns Saves Lives reported:
It looks like some gun owners in Connecticut who tried to register their “assault weapons” (that’s the state of CT’s actual term for these firearms), but missed the deadline are now getting letters instructing them to destroy or surrender their firearms.
According the letter, posted on several message boards and online media sources, residents who failed to register their firearms must now take the following action:
1. Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable.
2. Sell the assault weapon to a licensed gun dealer.
3. Remove the assault weapon from the state; or
4. You may make arrangements to relinquish the assault weapon to a police department or to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
Those all sound like super fun options. So far, it looks like only owners who tried to register their firearms, but missed the deadline are getting the letters.
