Connecticut state police are reporting long lines at their headquarters as state residents attempt to register assault weapons and large capacity magazines before a December 31st deadline. The deadline is part of tough new gun laws passed in Connecticut following last December’s school shooting in Newtown. (A large capacity magazine is defined as any firearm magazine or other device that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition.)
