    I heard on the radio that most scary rifle owners in Connecticut are not registering their rifles as per new state law.

    How would they know if you didn't register?

    There was a thread around here with a link or two, but I think I've gone blind as I can't find it. Estimates vary from 350k to over a million black scary rifles in CT and those deadly high capacity 30 round ghost clip mags are more numerous in number.

    "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."

    But the SCOTUS has ruled that a felon can not be compelled to register his arms. They are an essential tool of his trade.
    In Haynes v U.S. (1968), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that felons do not have to register illegally possessed guns, because the Fifth Amendment protects them against self-incrimination.
    So, since those that didn't register their guns or magazines they are now felons and exempt from the law!
    Looks like an "unintended consequence"!

    Seriously, you cannot pass a new law that immediately makes what you purchased legally at one time now illegal thus making your property in violation of the law. There are laws against that!

    You must grandfather the said item in.
    They had to do the same with all the drug related items that were "medicinal" from the 1900-1920's (granted rare now), vehicles
    (again from way back that do not meet emission standards),
    non serialized firearms (from way back when)..etc.
    ALL were grandfathered in.

    Irrational and hastily prepared unconstitutional bills are what make police states, tyrannical power and what get folks killed.

    My firearms?
    I lost them all. Woops.

    When the masses began rebelling against the laws, wouldn't that say it is bad law?

    Some of the thinkers realize that registration leads to confiscation.

    It would have been much more of a statement if all those lines we saw up there in the news, there had been nobody to take a photo of. Imagine not a single person complying.

    Civil Disobedience in the Suburbs | National Review Online

    "Charlie, I am heartened to hear the news that my former neighbors in Connecticut are saying no to the state’s ridiculous, oppressive new rifle-registry law. A little resistance from time to time is an excellent thing.

    The right to keep and bear arms is a civil right. I think it would be difficult to make the case that those Americans who knowingly and with intention aforethought violated Jim Crow laws were doing anything but their duty as Americans and as human beings. But we seem to have lost a little of our law-breaking spirit. It is always a difficult calculation to make (and, suspecting as I do that I am the only contributor here who celebrates John Brown’s birthday each May, I may not be the first guy it would occur to anybody to ask), but it is worth thinking about."

    They, the citizens of Connecticut, are setting the example for the rest of the Nation.
