HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut officials are urging owners of now-illegal assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines to relinquish them to the police or make them permanently inoperable.

The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection announced Friday it had sent a letter to owners who had failed to register the items by a Jan. 1 deadline, part of last year's gun control law. Officials offered advice on what to do now with the weapons and magazines.

The letter says gun owners are in compliance with the new state law if their items are no longer in Connecticut or were sold to an authorized gun dealer.

Those who fail to comply face charges of possessing an unregistered assault weapon and/or high capacity magazine.

Commissioner Dora Schriro denied rumors DESPP is confiscating weapons.Fox

The head of a nationwide sheriffs coalition is calling on Vermont's law enforcement officers to defy three controversial gun control measures passed by Burlington voters three weeks ago.

"Sheriffs have a constitutional duty to refuse to comply with such ordinances," said Richard Mack, president of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. "We're seeing sheriffs in New York oppose the Safe Act and Gov. Cuomo. If we have sheriffs in New York doing this, how much more should we have sheriffs doing it in Vermont?"

STUTZMAN RECIPROCITY BILL WOULD STICK IT TO FASCIST STATES LIKE NY AND CT

By now, you've probably heard that states like New York and Connecticut have responded to Newtown by going into "full confiscation mode:"

* New York City is sending out letters to registered gun owners, demanding that they relinquish guns holding more than seven rounds.

* In Connecticut, the Hartford Courant is insisting that the state imprison up to 300,000 gun owners who have not complied with the most recent registration demands.

All of the time, we are receiving e-mails from gun owners in these states and elsewhere, demanding that something be done about these atrocities against the Constitution.

We are working with litigators to try to challenge states such as these in court -- in the face of a judiciary which is increasingly packed by Obama with anti-gun judges.

But one thing we can do to force states like New York and Connecticut to recognize the Constitution is to pass reciprocity legislation like H.R. 578, which has been introduced by Congressman Marlin Stutzman in the House and currently has 38 cosponsors.
