‘Squirrely’ Firearms Charges Brought in CT

U.S. Law Shield believes we’ve seen how the State of Connecticut plans to enforce its new semi-auto rifle registration and magazine-ban laws: as add-on charges rather than door to door.

According to the New Haven Register, James Toigo of Milford, Connecticut was charged with a range of offenses after he shot a squirrel. Some were to be expected: unlawful discharge of a firearm, cruelty to an animal, first-degree reckless endangerment, and second-degree breach of peace.

But the next two are new — failure to register an assault rifle and three counts of possessing large-capacity magazines.

The case relates to a new law in Connecticut that requires gun owners to register so-called “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines or face a class D felony.

“As the investigation progressed, the officers seized several firearms from the home for safe keeping,” police officer Jeffery Nielsen said in a statement obtained by the New Haven Register. “That included the assault rifle and the three high-capacity magazines he did not have registered.”

So far, the courts have upheld Connecticut’s new civilian-disarmament laws. Do you think they’ll eventually be overturned?
