In a new development that probably surprises nobody familiar with history, the state of Connecticut has delivered notarized letters to gun owners who tried to register their guns in accordance with the new gun laws, but missed the filing deadline.
Gun owners who filed late are being given “one last chance” to get rid of guns and magazines that became illegal overnight.
If the gun owners do not comply, it seems their guns may be confiscated and the gun owners prosecuted as felons for breaking the law.
Officials are reportedly notifying gun owners who submitted late applications that they have one last chance to get rid of their “illegal” weapons.
State officials did accept some gun registration applications that were submitted after the Jan. 4 deadline, however, not all late applications were accepted, the Journal Inquirer reports.
“But rather than turn that information over to prosecutors, state officials are giving the gun owners a chance to get rid of the weapons and magazines,” the report adds.
So gun owners who actually tried to register their guns and magazines, intentionally late or not, are now on the state’s radar for owning guns that became illegal overnight. Owning an unregistered semi-automatic rifle or high-capacity magazine that was legal prior to Jan. 3 is now a class D felony under the new law.
This is what happens once you raise your hand and tell the state you have guns and magazines that have recently been outlawed. The state then threatens you with the full force of the law to “persuade” you to give up your guns.
Just two days ago, The Right To Bear reported:
And at what point will Connecticut start aggressively prosecuting gun owners in the state?
Whether it happens this year or next, it seems some sort of conflict is inevitable.
Apparently, the conflict seems like it’s going to happen much sooner than expected.
You’ll want to keep a close watch on Connecticut. I do not expect this conflict to be resolved smoothly.
Don’t be scared. Be prepared.
P.S. In this age of increasing government intrusion, privacy is becoming more important than ever. That’s why more and more people are turning to the “underground assault rifle” that the government can’t trace. Check it out here…
