Civil Disobedience: Tens of Thousands from Connecticut Just Say No to Gun Registration
February 13th, 2014
Tens of thousands of people in Connecticut have just knowingly become “criminals” under a hastily passed state law requiring the registration of certain firearms.
The law, adopted after Sandy Hook, bans the sale of any semiautomatic firearm that also has a “military feature” such as a pistol grip. Residents were told that if they register their “assault weapons” by December 31, 2013, that they’d be “allowed” to keep them.
About 50,000 residents dutifully followed the new law, standing in long lines to register their firearms.
