The first person charged under Connecticut’s controversial gun control law appears to be a 65-year-old Milford man, who is in trouble with police because he shot a squirrel – with a legal gun.
Police were in James Toigo’s neighborhood directing traffic when they heard a gunshot. Toigo acknowledged shooting the squirrel, although police say he did not use his so-called assault rifle to do it. Such rifles are now illegal in the state, but residents who already had them when the law went into effect could register them under a grandfather clause.
“As the investigation progressed the officers seized several firearms from the home for safe keeping,” Officer Jeffrey Nielsen told the New Haven Register. “That included the assault rifle and the three high capacity magazine he did not have registered.”
Nielsen said the majority of Toigo’s firearms were registered.
Toigo was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, cruelty to an animal, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree breach of peace, failure to register an assault rifle and three counts of possessing large-capacity magazines, according to the newspaper.
Widespread Failure To Register
Among the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation, the Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety Act appears to have led to thousands of gun owners refusing to register their AR-15s and other types of weapons, for fear of having the government know they have them.
