Connecticutians had until the end of last year — almost one year to the day after the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre — to license their arsenals. Only a fraction has followed the new law, however, and they could all soon face serious consequences if the state decides to take action.
Tens of thousands of Connecticut residents could soon be considered felons by the state if they continue to ignore restrictive new gun control laws passed last year shortly after an armed rampage at an area elementary school left more than two dozen dead.
On Thursday this week, journalist Dan Haar of Connecticut’s The Courant newspaper wrote that state police had received only 47,916 completed registration forms by the end of last year. According to his reporting, that statistic is just a sliver of what it should be.
If the state has received 50,000 registrations by now, Haar wrote, then that could represent as little as 15 percent of the assault weapons now classified by the state as warranting new paperwork under last April’s law.
“No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000,” Harr wrote.

    Sandy Hook was a total False Flag.
    Nobody got killed or injured, they were actors getting paid.
    Just look who they were or how they reacted, some were even laughing.
    The Governments are telling Lies to us, to bring in more Laws.

    Dunblane was a false flag too, and has anyone else noticed that out of the FF events there is always some hero that goes on, such as the tennis player who was at Dunblane?

    Yes yanks, hang on to your guns. Freedom is non existent when the rulers have all the weapons.
