Someone in Connecticut owns 179 assault rifles, but if he’s your neighbor, you may never know.
Another state resident has 175 of the semi-automatic rifles that can fire 30 rounds in 15 seconds, like the gun Adam Lanza used to kill 20 first graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
A third firearms enthusiast keeps nearly 544,000 high-capacity magazines.
And who knows, there might be somebody who owns that many “assault rifles”, heck maybe two somebodies that we are envious of by default. But a third person owning over half a million magazines? Get real, I don’t think even Colt Industries keeps that many in their warehouse.
Maybe we are seeing gun owners showing their disrespect to the forced registration by trolling the authorities or maybe we have a colossal series of clerical errors that would render the database useless.
I wonder what other screw ups are in that database. The more, the merrier.
