Authorities not yet enforcing weapons law
Two gun owners who attended a recent rally at the state Capitol told the Record-Journal they were defying the law based on Second Amendment grounds. They spoke on condition of anonymity due to the potential for prosecution. One of the gun owners said he had never registered his Colt AR-15 bought in the 1980s as required under the 1994 gun ban. Since then he’s bought more AR-15-style rifles, he said, along with an AK-47 pattern weapon. The guns are hidden off his property and will remain so until he needs them, he said.
