The 'ol "Connecticut Catch-22", eh?

From the Washington Times editorials... 
As of Jan. 1, owners of arms that have a menacing appearance had to submit registration paperwork to the state.

Only about 50,000 did so. There’s no way to know how many “assault rifles” remain unregistered, but the best guess is that the new “gun safety” law instantly created 300,000 felons.

Faced with 300,000 potential offenders, officials must decide whether to ignore the new law, or enforce it by sending SWAT teams to raid the homes of anyone suspected of owning the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15.

While I usually refrain from commenting about politics, this is a pretty contorted situation and I really hope rational thoughts and analysis prevails. Additionally, this may really boil down to be a litmus test on how government reacts and justifies their maneuvering, something that will most likely impact the shooting sports.
