HARTFORD, Conn. Connecticut 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. The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection announced Friday it had sent a letter to owners who had failed to register the items by a Jan. 1 deadline, part of last year's gun control law. Officials offered advice on what to do now with the weapons and magazines.

Look for them to hide them.
Tell them to pound sand. Obviously Connecticut is “the” test state to see how this “experiment” will pan out. Probably met the criteria as being the most likely state where it would succeed by the feds.
:: sent a letter to owners who had failed to register the items ::
Does not compute...
What they are doing is illegal per the Constitutuion. I don’t care if they tridd to circumvent it uing. “state” law it’s still unconstitutional.
What they are doing is illegal per the Constitutuion. I dont care if they tried to circumvent it using state law its still unconstitutional.
I think that these were the people that TRIED to register the guns... but *surprise* the applications were rejected. Now Connecticut is telling these people they "failed to register the weapons."
The people there need to resist and refuse to comply. This is a keystone event and a historic one. The people of Connecticut need to stand against this crap and they need to stand strong!
No Surrender! No Compromise!
Good luck! I heard there have been a lot of canoe accidents lately.
How long are they going to put up with this crap ?
Democrats routinely ignore laws that they don’t like.
They could just require the people without guns to be registered. Then by elimination, the rest are those nasty gun owners.
Watch gun owners burn registration forms
Civil disobedience over firearms spreads to New York

A looming crisis for Connecticut law enforcement officials the potential that they have 350,000 new felons in their state soon will expand to New York, where officials have set an April 15 deadline for owners to register weapons that have features the state says are characteristic of assault weapons.
The two states are among many re-defining ordinary guns that as many as hundreds of thousands of people own and demanding a registration that Second Amendment supporters view as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
When the registration program was imposed in Connecticut, a massive number of weapon owners simply ignored the requirement, putting the state in a position of deciding whether the law will be enforced. If so, the problem is what to do with the 350,000 people now subject to felony charges.
In Connecticut, there was no grandfathering for people who already possess the weapons. Branford resident John Cinque challenged two of the members of the legislature, Sen. Leonard Fasano and Rep. Dave Yaccarino, both Republicans.
I tell everybody Im not complying, Cinque said. I cant you have to be willing to stand up and say no. And there are a lot of us who are going to say no.
An ABC affiliate reported the resistance now has spread to New York.
Barack Obama and especially Eric Holder have demonstrated we are no longer a nation under rule of law.
Ergo, laws no longer apply to citizens, no matter what they say or do.
Good luck with that.
It’s going to take massive Civil Disobedience. Who’s going to blink first?
My guess is that the state will do some heavily advertised SWAT raids on selected people. What occurs after that could lead us into Civil War or to the ouster of all the current Politicians and hopefully long jail sentences for them too.
