Reports: CT Gun Owners Refusing to Register Their Guns

As seen on The Kelly File

Tens of thousands of Connecticut gun owners are reportedly refusing to register their guns.

Connecticut law bans the sale of assault weapons in the state and expands the definition of what classifies as an assault weapon. Residents can still own them as long as they were registered with state police by Dec. 31, 2013.

By the deadline, nearly 48,000 registered, and 2,100 applications were incomplete. But even conservative estimates of the number of guns in Connecticut range from 150,000-350,000.

Republican state Sen. Tony Guglielmo says residents think that their rights are being violated, and they refuse to abide by the law. He says he has never seen a law willfully disobeyed like this.

Not registering is a felony, but there is no amnesty at this point. That means that if a resident were to try to register their weapon today, they could be arrested.
