Its been in the news, albeit regional and Pro Second Amendment news organizations mostly, but still. Its been in the news for the last few weeks about the dismal level of compliance with Connecticut’s new “Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazine Registration Law”, rushed into enactment by Governor Malloy in a shameful exploitation of the tragic Sandy Hook Massacre in order to obtain political and ideological goals.
By all accounts the compliance rate is incredibly low, on the order of only 10 to 15 percent range, Semi official numbers say only 50,000 individuals registered.
An official State analysis in 2011 estimated that there were approximately 370,000 so called “Assault Rifles” and well over a MILLION “large capacity magazines” in circulation. Yet as the Jan 1st 2014 deadline to register them with the State came, went and the paperwork was processed, officials discovered that only approximately 50,000 of the 370,000 semi automatic rifles had been registered and roughly 35,000 “large capacity (really standard capacity) magazines” were registered.

That triggered widespread dumbfounded confusion amongst state officials, including Governor Malloy, who seemingly cant seem to accept the fact that people are willfully refusing to comply with the arbitrary diktats of their tyrannical “leaders“. Since Jan 1st 2014, Malloy has come up with any number of excuses to explain what to him and others like him is incomprehensible.
