As frustrated as you feel, imagine how much more so are the criminals! They are not use to all this paperwork and counting of cartridges. This will seriously cut into their socioeconomic activities. Some of them may not even be able to read the application forms or write to fill out the registration forms. They may have to get rid of their mags and guns simply because they are illiterate or can't afford to take the time away from street activities. Maybe CT needs a street thug outreach program to help them through the paperwork.
"The ultimate authority ... resides in the people alone. ... The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation ... forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition."
