Police had received 47,916 applications for â€śassault weapons certificatesâ€ť and 21,000 incomplete applications as of Dec. 31, Lt. Paul Vance told The Courant.
At roughly 50,000 applications, officials estimate that as little as 15 percent of the covered semi-automatic rifles have actually been registered with the state. â€śNo 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,â€ť the report states.
Needless to say, officials and some lawmakers are stunned.
Yes, it must be disturbing when the lemmings don’t all jump off the cliff.
