The National Rifle Association (NRA), which represents the financial interests of gun manufacturers, recently released a new video that warns of possible gun confiscation in Connecticut.
The NRA is upset over a new Connecticut law that requires residents to register any assault-style weapons and bans the purchases of such guns. Gun owners already in possession of these once-legal items were supposed to register them by Jan. 1, 2014, but about 300,000 guns owners did not, notes the Hartford Courant.
Even though officials have said that state-wide gun confiscation is not part of the law, the NRA video (below) warns gun owners that gun confiscation is likely coming and includes some threats of future violence.
“I can see a riot happening here. It’s not going to be a pretty picture,” says security company owner Alaina Matheny on the video (below).
State Rep. Rob Sampson laments, "A new class of criminals has been created by this law," but he fails to mention that's true with any new law.
Sampson added that he felt "shameful" for registering his weapon.
Neither the NRA or gun supporters in the video mentioned the tens of millions of dollars the gun industry pays the NRA for lobbying, reports BusinessInsider.com.
