There are only five more days until the new gun laws go into effect for our state, that means a dash to register assault weapons or high capacity magazines. A long line of gun owners stood outside of the Public Safety Building in Middletown all day Thursday to register firearms. Specifically, anything the state considers an assault weapon or a high capacity magazine must be registered before Jan. 1, 2014. “If they were trying to make them illegal, I’d have a real issue, but if they want to just know where they are, that’s fine with me,” said Charles Gillette, who was registering magazines. “I understand why they’re doing it, but I don’t think it’s constitutional,” said Scott Boccio, who was registering guns.
