Rumors have run rampant that a new Connecticut law demanding registration of a wide range of guns and firearms components is just a prelude to gun confiscation.
And viewers of a new National Rifle Association video on the dispute probably will not find themselves reassured.
For although it contains a statement from state police officials that the gun registration program – which created a looming crisis because an estimated 350,000 people refused to register – will not be followed by confiscation, critics don’t believe it.
“I can see a riot happening here. It’s not going to be a pretty picture,” said security company owner Alaina Matheny in the new video.
As WND reported, the law had an April 15 deadline for owners to register certain weapons considered by the state to be “assault” weapons.
